Air suspension

The Cayenne models can be equipped with an air suspension system featuring self-levelling, ride-height control and PASM* – for enhanced driving dynamics and comfort. The self-levelling facility maintains a constant ground clearance, which can easily be adjusted using the ride-height control on the centre console.

Steel-spring suspension

The steel-spring suspension meets high- level requirements in terms of performance, driving pleasure and off-road capability. Consistent lightweight construction – e.g. through the increased use of aluminium – results in improved driving dynamics, greater fuel economy and enhanced comfort. The steel-spring suspension with a 24 mm reduction in ride height on the Cayenne GTS is designed todeliver one thing above all else: sports performance.

Standard on the Cayenne, Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S, Cayenne S Hybrid and Cayenne GTS.

* PASM is fitted as standard on the Cayenne GTS.

** At High Level II, High Level I and Normal Level, the ride height on the Cayenne GTS is 12 mm lower than on the other Cayenne models.

*** The ride height on the Cayenne Turbo is 5 mm higher than on the other models.
