Audi engineers provide maximum comfort to their customers. Therefore, the Audi A7/S7/RS7 models come with several types of suspenion. Customers can order adaptable air suspension from Audi— specifically for poor road conditions. This design is characterized by reinforced elements of increased strength, which do not lose their characteristics, even under excessive loads and abuse.
Specifics of Audi A7/S7/RS7 Air Suspension
Special trapezoid control arms and shock absorbers are used for the rear axle. This allows for increased trunk space with a comfortable flat floor.
The unit acts similarly to the air suspension installed in the A8. But, unlike the A8 and A7, there are several systems to choose from. At the same time, the air suspension compressor, bellows, air suspension valve block, etc. are identical in the A7/S7/RS7: the differences are in the software settings. But, if you need to make repairs, you can use the same parts.
The system consists of these components:
- Control unit (installed in the rear of the vehicle, in the right side of the trunk);
- A block of electromagnetic valves
- Air supply module (generates pressure up to 18 bar);
- 4 road clearance sensors
- Dynamic sensors and control unit
- Air springs
- Air suspension struts, etc.
The air suspension of Audi A7/S7/RS7 combines electronic functions and pneumatics. Any of its components can fail, especially when driving aggressively on a bad road.
If the air suspension works properly, you can adjust the body position as follows:
- When driving on a bad roads, choose the "Lift" mode to prevent damage.
- The “Dynamic” mode lowers the body, which reduces the center of gravity, and improves control.
- In "Auto" mode, the suspension changes the position of the body automatically if the car travels at a certain speed for more than thirty seconds.
