Handling stability with first-class comfort.
Bumpy country road or modern motorway: the AIRMATIC air suspension system adapts the suspension to the prevailing conditions. The damping of each wheel self-adjusts according to the current driving situation and the condition of the road. This happens fast and precisely by means of two separate valves for rebound and compression in each damper. AIRMATIC thereby provides maximum ride comfort for any situation.
With increasing speed the soft basic suspension set-up transforms into safe handling stability. The separate adjustment of rebound and compression by means of dedicated valves results in reduced vibrations and thus quieter actuation noises. By combining safety and comfort in pioneering fashion, Mercedes-Benz assumes the role of trailblazer.
