With the Adaptive M suspension, you no longer have to decide between comfort and performance. It is sensor-controlled and adapts to the respective conditions in split seconds, delivering complete safety even in difficult driving situations. Whether on a bumpy street or in a sharp curve or braking hard – enjoy a dynamic drive in complete comfort and with perfect control of your vehicle.




The Adaptive M suspension enables you to choose freely between a pleasant, smooth driving style or sporty performance. The driving experience switch in the operating area allows you to apply the basic settings for your driving style yourself; you can change these at any time with the push of a button.

Highly sensitive sensors deliver the necessary information, such as wheel oscillations and driving speed, to the Adaptive M suspension in split seconds. Electronically controlled valves in the shock absorbers adapt the settings directly from this, for optimal suspension and driving safety at the same time.

The hardware required for this feature comes ready-installed in your vehicle when it leaves the factory, at no extra cost. This gives you even more flexibility when it comes to configuring your vehicle.

You can find a detailed description of this feature in your vehicle's operating instructions.
