Choose the style of drive you want – at the touch of a button

Our Dynamic Chassis Control offers you a way to adapt your suspension to the road.

This innovative system ensures your car's suspension is constantly adapting to suit the road and driving conditions. What's more, you can change the ride setting to suit your mood - at the touch of a button in the centre console. Choose from three modes - Normal, Sport and Comfort - to either firm up or soften the ride and change the characteristics of the power steering.

The Sport mode, for example, stiffens the suspension system and provides greater feedback and steering responsiveness. The result is like driving an agile sports car. So whether you feel like a sharper, sportier drive or just want to settle back and enjoy a relaxed journey, it's up to you.

How it works?

The intelligent Dynamic Chassis Control system features electrically regulated dampers and steering. Each individual shock absorber is connected to a control device which calculates the best setting for each wheel. It does this via the sensor data and other information it receives from the travelling car - steering, brakes and driving assist systems. This allows the system to react within milliseconds to bumps in the road, changing lanes or bendy roads.

Please refer to your Volkswagen Owner's manual for official guidance on use and operation of all our technology.
