In every handling situation this suspension ensures smooth ride characteristics and exceptional handling dynamics – even in the event of unevenness of the road surface. The damping at each wheel is adapted to the current driving situation, and can be set for more comfortable or sporty characteristics as required.
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.
This suspension system is forward-looking in every sense of the word: It prepares and adjusts to unevenness in the road surface before the vehicle even reaches them. At speeds of up to 130 km/h a stereo camera scans the road ahead so that the damping at each wheel can be optimally adapted to meet the uneven spots and stretches of road ahead.
