Suspension tuning

General notes

The electronically controlled damping system works continuously. This improves driving safety and ride comfort.

The damping is tuned individually to each wheel and depends on:

 - your driving style, e.g. sporty
 - the road surface condition, e.g. bumps
 - your individual selection of Sport, Sport + or Comfort

If you select Sport or Sport + mode and restart the engine, the suspension setting reverts to Comfort mode.

Sport mode

Sport mode

The firmer suspension tuning in Sport mode ensures even better contact with the road.
