Principle of operation

The active suspension provides improved handling, comfort and stability by continuously adjusting the damper properties to the current road and driving conditions. This system in conjunction with the ABS system offers the benefit of potentially shorter stopping distances on rough road surfaces.

Depending on your preferences and driving style, you can choose between three different settings:

Comfort

This provides a softer driving feel.

Normal

Normal setting.

Sport

This provides a harder, sportier ride.
