Vehicle level
The vehicle regulates its height automatically depending on the current speed according to the vehicle height setting. As the speed increases, the vehicle drops by up to 10 mm. As the speed decreases, it rises to the set height.
An operating switch in the instrument cluster can be used to choose between two level settings manually:
• Normal (for normal road conditions)
• Raised (for driving with snow chains and on poor roads)

• Excellent suspension tuning and optimized handling due to vehicle-speed dependent distribution of roll moments
• Handling is adapted to suit the vehicle load
• Automatic, speed-dependent lowering of the vehicle by up to 10 mm to reduce fuel consumption.
• Raising of the vehicle via level switches in order to drive over obstacles
• Roll and pitch compensation and skyhook damping of the body
Advantages of ABC in the CL-Class compared with ABC in the predecessor model series:
• Reduction of the roll angle by 45 %
• New ABC control algorithm with rapid-response oil flow regulation
• Optimization by integration of components
• Reduction in lines and connecting points
• Optimization of existing components
