Vehicle Adaptive & Active Suspension: My Car Does What

Adaptive and Active Suspension

May help smooth out your drive by adjusting your car’s suspension system – making it easier to brake and steer.

Now included in many luxury cars, these features are designed to improve handling and comfort for drivers and passengers. However, as a safety feature, they can enhance stability by eliminating body roll and pitch variation. This helps keep tires perpendicular to the road and can improve their traction.

The goal of this feature is to keep the car’s body as flat as possible. During braking, this feature helps prevent the front-end of the vehicle from diving or dipping. Alternately, during acceleration, this feature helps prevent the rear of the vehicle from dropping.
