At the rear, there is also an independent suspension setup. Mercedes Benz also designed a steering rack for the rear axle. The rear-wheel steering can turn both the rear wheels independently to the front wheels. This improves the manoeuvrability of the S class and also allows for easy parallel parking.
The airmatic suspension can automatically lower the vehicle and the latest airmatic bellows have additional valves that can quickly fill the air in small chambers inside the air bellows. There can be up to three air chambers per bellow and the speed of the vehicle raising and lowering is really fast.
