Suspension tuning

The electronically controlled ABC suspension system works continuously. This improves driving safety and comfort.

The ABC suspension system is tuned individually to each wheel and depends on:
Х your driving style, e.g. sporty
Х the road surface condition, e.g. bumps
Х your individual selection, i.e. sports or comfort
Х the vehicle load

Your selection remains stored even if you remove the SmartKey from the ignition lock.
