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 center console:

1. High Level II**

2.28 in. above Normal Level; max. ground clearance: 10.55 in. (Cayenne Turbo: 10.75 in.); selectable at speeds of up to 19 mph.

2. High Level I**

1.10 in. above Normal Level; max. ground clearance: 9.37 in. (Cayenne Turbo: 9.57 in.); selectable at speeds of up to 50 mph.

3. Normal Level**

Max. ground clearance: 8.27 in. (Cayenne Turbo: 8.46 in.).

4. Low Level I

.87 in. below Normal Level; max. ground clearance: 7.40 in. (Cayenne Turbo: 7.60 in.); automatically selected above 86 mph.

5. Low Level II

1.27 in. below Normal Level; max. ground clearance: 7.0 in. (Cayenne Turbo: 7.20 in.); automatically selected above 130 mph. (Not manually selectable.)

6. Loading Level

2.05 in. below Normal Level; max. ground clearance: 6.2 in. (Cayenne Turbo: 6.4 in.); only selectable when vehicle is stationary.

Air suspension with PASM standard on the Cayenne Turbo. Optional for all other Cayenne models.

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 aluminum – results in improved driving dynamics, greater fuel economy and enhanced comfort. 

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

* PASM is fitted as standard on the new Cayenne GTS.

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