Make sure the relevant warnings and cautions have been read and fully understood before adjusting the electronic air suspension. See ELECTRONIC AIR SUSPENSION SAFETY.

The vehicle can be configured to enter access height automatically via the touchscreen. To enable the auto access feature:

  1. Press the settings icon. See TOUCHSCREEN HOME MENU.

  2. Select ALL.

  3. Select Vehicle.

  4. Select Convenience.

  5. Select Vehicle access.

  6. Touch the Auto access height toggle.

The auto access feature lowers the vehicle by up to 20 mm when either:

  • The vehicle’s ignition is switched off.

  • The vehicle is stationary and an occupied seat belt is unbuckled.


    The vehicle does not lower if the second row centre seat belt is unbuckled, but the second row outer seat belts remain buckled.

The vehicle is lowered by a further 20 mm when a door is opened.

The vehicle returns to normal height if a door is not opened and the vehicle’s speed reaches 40 km/h (25 mph).


The auto access feature operates more efficiently and smoothly with the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) applied and the brake pedal fully released.
