I like the new S-Class but have a question about the suspension on these cars.

As well as my SL500 I have a BMW 7 Series 2006 Sport Model. It has BMW's "Dynamic Drive" auto adjusting anti-roll bars. They really do make the car handle pretty well. I've had BMW's with EDC shocks too which work pretty well.

Does this latest generation S Class (Non AMG) incorporate any simelar features, or is there options to be ticked for simelar?

Thanks

The current Non AMG (W221) S class has an individual ordering option called Active Body control . The AMG version of Active Body control on the S class is said to be tuned a little more, presumably to handle the dynamics of a more powerful/slightly heavier car.

I have ABC on my S 550 and love it. The 2010 Non AMG S class will have the option to order Active Body Control. The reality however is that only 10% of the Non AMG S class were even built with ABC. The ABC option is around $3900 dollars.

Thanks for your reply,

i've just remembered all these cars will have air suspension I imagine, a bit like my SL I suppose?
