Airmatic Suspension

Responsiveness is the main benefit of Mercedes-Benz AIRMATIC® suspension. You may be asking, “Aren’t all suspension systems meant to be responsive?” Yes—but AIRMATIC® differs from steel-spring suspensions with its adjustable air springs. For smoother handling, it also works in tandem with Adaptive Damping System (ADS) and responds to DYNAMIC SELECT® drive modes. Read on to learn more about AIRMATIC® in new Mercedes-Benz vehicles!

How Does AIRMATIC® Suspension Work?

Here’s a quick breakdown of how this one-of-a-kind suspension system operates:

  • As each air spring moves vertically, AIRMATIC® adjusts the amount of air for greater comfort and less body roll.
  • ADS keeps tabs on the road and your driving habits and, within 50 milliseconds, can firm the shock absorbers for controlled handling.
  • Select Sport or Comfort to adjust the feel of the suspension to your liking.

Unique Features of AIRMATIC®

  • AIRMATIC® is a self-leveling suspension system; adding passengers or cargo doesn’t reduce the comfort of your ride.
  • On rough roads around Eastvale or Fontana, AIRMATIC® can raise the vehicle with the push of button for greater ground clearance.
  • At higher speeds, you can push the same button to lower AIRMATIC® for improved aerodynamics and control.
