PASM is an electronic damping control system and it actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on road conditions and driving style. This reduces body movement and therefore increases comfort in all four seats.
How does PASM work? By means of a button on the centre console, you can select one of the three modes: Comfort, SPORT or SPORT PLUS. Sensors record the body movements that accompany powerful acceleration, braking and rapid cornering or uneven road surfaces. The control unit evaluates the driving conditions and modifies the damping force on each of the wheels in accordance with the selected mode. You can feel the result: increased driving stability, more comfort and improved performance.
Optional for the Panamera and Panamera 4, standard in all other models.
