S-specific Adaptive air suspension provides electronically controlled sport air suspension with a continuously variable adaptive damping system on all four wheels and an S-specific basic setting. Automatic load-based regulation of the vehicle ride height and damping ensures outstanding driving dynamics while also providing greater comfort. Ride height control enables the vehicle ride height to be adjusted within a range of 65 mm between the maximum and minimum level. The ground clearance can be increased as the situation dictates, e.g. for journeys on dirt tracks. A lower ride height setting reduces drag and improves handling. It is also possible to lower the rear axle to facilitate loading of the luggage compartment. This function is activated via a button in the luggage compartment.
