This suspension featuring a selective, passive damping system delivers well-balanced driving comfort by optimising roll characteristics, damping and stabilisation in line with road conditions.
Stroke-dependent damping reduces the damping effect in response to small jolts and improves ride comfort and tracking. Passive damping provides greater vehicle stability when it experiences larger jolts on poor road surfaces.
What would happen if your vehicle could adapt automatically to your driving style? It would reduce damping for a relaxed driving style. If you were driving quickly, it would stiffen up the shock absorbers and stabilise the car. Automatic personalisation doesn't get any better.
This suspension system, which has a selective passive damping system, provides all-round ride comfort on any road surface. The vehicle is lowered by 15 millimeters, improving handling on bends in particular, and giving the vehicle a sportier look.
Your Mercedes-Benz does exactly what you want it to do: You can influence the major components – the drive system and chassis – and make every journey a unique experience.
The AGILITY SELECT switch lets you select particularly comfortable, sporty, efficient – or fully customised – handling characteristics with a simple finger tap. Parameters such as the characteristics of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering system are adapted in line with the selected drive mode.
Standard equipment for the C 220 BlueTEC BlueEFFICIENCY Edition, C 250 BlueTEC, C 250 as well as in conjunction with 7G-TRONIC Plus automatic transmission and the AMG Line Exterior design and equipment line.
Experience the Mercedes-Benz driving sensation five times over – in just one vehicle! With the AIRMATIC Agility Package in the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Saloon.
The combination of AIRMATIC air suspension with the AGILITY SELECT switch allows you to create a driving experience to suit your needs or preferences. Four different drive modes are available at the touch of a button – very comfortable, sporty, very sporty and efficient. You can create a setting to suit you.
Individual parameters can also be adjusted in the pre-configured drive modes using the buttons for these partial functions. This applies, for example, to the ECO start/stop function or the setting for the vehicle level. A subsequent change of drive mode triggers a change to the settings for the mode in question.
Lowering the vehicle by 15 mm and featuring a firmer suspension/damping configuration, this sporty variant of the AGILITY CONTROL suspension allows a more dynamic driving style. The selective, passive damping system continues to deliver high driving comfort.
