PASM is an electronic damping control system. It offers continuous adjustment of individual damping forces based on current road conditions and driving style.
During performance driving or heavy offroad use, there is an increased tendency for the body to sway. PASM prevents this from happening, thereby improving stability and occupant comfort. PASM has three setup modes: ‘Comfort’, ‘ Normal’ and ‘Sport’.
Whichever one you select, the system uses a series of sensors to monitor the movement of the body. It also gathers data on lateral acceleration, steering angle, brake pressure and engine torque and modifies the damping force on each individual wheel in accordance with the selected mode.
PASM remains active at all times. It automatically adapts to the prevailing driving conditions, enabling greater car control and improving comfort and safety.
The Cayenne GTS is the only model in the range to feature a steel-spring suspension with a 24 mm reduction in ride height including PASM. For a lower centre of gravity and even closer contact with the road.
Optional for the Cayenne, Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S, Cayenne S Hybrid. Standard on the Cayenne GTS. Standard on the Cayenne Turbo: air suspension with PASM.
