Takes bends as if it were on rails - thanks to its active suspension stabilisers, the ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM reduces the rolling movements of the vehicle and thus ensures greater ride comfort on the roads. When driving off-road, the higher degree of articulation facilitates greater traction.
The AMG speed-sensitive sports steering with variable steering ratio and direct steering response supports a sporty style of driving. Adjustment of the steering characteristic curve ensures a comfortable, or a comfortable steering feeling according to the suspension setting selected.
More comfort, more dynamism, more ground clearance: In combination with the ADS PLUS Adaptive Damping System, the air suspension delivers excellent road roar and tyre vibration characteristics and outstanding driving dynamics to the road or the track.
Your comfort should not be dependant on the state of the road surface. The AIRMATIC packages makes this possible. It adapts the damping of the vehicle and its wheels to the road surface conditions. And enables more dynamism at high speeds.
The Direct-Steer system adds to the comfort of speed-sensitive power steering with a variable steering ratio dependent on the steering wheel angle. On winding roads this leads e.g. to more agile vehicle response and increases straight-line stability.
Comfortable, sporty, winter-optimised, off-road-capable or entirely individual suspension settings can be easily called up using the DYNAMIC SELECT Controller on the centre console. Parameters such as engine, transmission and steering characteristics are modified in accordance with the drive program chosen (suspension settings only in conjunction with the optional AIRMATIC package).
The electronically-regulated damping system adapts damping force at each individual wheel to the vehicle's current road speed and road surface conditions and thus provides more motoring enjoyment and increased comfort.
The combination of steel suspension and a selective damping system gives this suspension great agility and ride comfort. The damping system adjusts automatically to the driving situation and in this way the damping effect and stability are enhanced, especially on uneven ground.
The damping firmness for this suspension is adapted to the vehicle speed, thus ensuring consistent stability and excellent driving dynamics. The lowering of the vehicle by eleven millimetres also plays its part.
Only available for the GLE 250 d and GLE 250 d 4MATIC.
