Mercedes-Benz E-class vehicles are equipped with the Airmatic air suspension, which automatically adjusts the clearance during the drive. This patented technology is used in the 4matic all-wheel drive models for comfort and safety.
It features an adaptive damping system (ADS), which, with the help of special sensors, analyzes data on the speed and steering angle of the vehicle. This information allows for the best ground clearance to be selected.
Third-generation Air Suspension
The third generation of the Mercedes E-Class, to which the cars with a W211 suspension belong, was produced from 2002 to 2009. The E55 AMG, E63 AMG, the five-seater S211 and others were also built on this platform. They all have a multi-link suspension with a stabilizer. The Airmatic air suspension is installed in 8-cylinder models, which also have a mechanism with two control arms.
The air suspension in third-generation vehicles is lighter due to the use of aluminum for the production of most parts. This allows for the weight of the vehicle to be reduced. The technology of automatic control of the suspension allows for the appropriate mode for each wheel to be chosen separately, adapting the system to all requirements, taking into account the characteristics of the road, driving style, pressure and air temperature.
Airmatic reduces the sway of the car and contributes to its stability. It adapts to the driving conditions and allows you to choose between the following modes:
The Sport mode involves higher speeds, so the suspension elements improve resistance and reduce the level of car body roll in sharp turns. The Comfort mode is associated with a smooth ride at medium speed, suitable for driving in the city.
Auto Parts for E-class Vehicles
Despite every detail of Mercedes being of high quality, any auto parts wear out and require repair or replacement on a regular basis. For proper operation of the air suspension, it is necessary to regularly change the air springs and check the condition of the compressor. These elements of the system malfunction most often. Depressurization of the air spring can damage the compressor. Therefore, all elements of the air suspension have to be kept under control.
