Level control* and shock absorption
Level control and shock absorption are regulated automatically in the car.
With rear level control, the car maintains the same height at the rear regardless of load. Level control can also occur even after the car has been parked.
Shock absorption (Four-C)
On a car equipped with Four-C the shock absorption is adapted according to the drive mode selected and the speed of the car. Shock absorption is normally set for the best possible comfort and is regulated continuously depending on the road surface, the car's acceleration, braking and cornering.
During transport of the car on a ferry, train or truck, the car must be lashed around the tyres and not around other parts of the chassis. Changes in the air suspension may occur during transport, which could affect the lashing negatively.
