Volvo XC90: Starting and driving / Leveling control and suspension

(Option/accessory.)

The vehicle's leveling control system adjusts the suspension and shock absorbers automatically to help optimize comfort and control while driving. Leveling can also be controlled manually to facilitate loading or getting in and out of the vehicle.

Pneumatic suspension and shock absorbers

The system is adapted to the selected drive mode and vehicle speed. The pneumatic suspension reduces the vehicle's ground clearance at higher speeds to reduce air resistance and increase stability. The shock absorbers are normally set to help optimize comfort and are adjusted continuously according to the road surface and the vehicle's acceleration, braking and cornering.

Volvo XC90. Leveling control and suspension The instrument panel indicates when the suspension level is being adjusted.

The following apply if a door or the tailgate is opened:

  • If a door is opened, the level can only be adjusted upwards.
  • If the tailgate is open, the level can only be adjusted downwards.

Parking

When parking, make sure that there is adequate space above and below the vehicle since ground clearance may vary depending on e.g. ambient temperature, how the vehicle is loaded, if loading mode is used, which drive mode is selected after the engine is started, etc.

The level may also be adjusted a period after the vehicle is parked. This is to compensate for any height changes that may occur due to temperature changes in the air springs when the vehicle cools.

Transporting

When transporting the vehicle on a ferry, train or truck, only secure (lash) the vehicle around the tires, not using any other parts of the chassis. Changes in the pneumatic suspension may occur during transport, which could adversely affect the lashing and result in damage.

Symbols and messages

If a problem occurs with the leveling control, a message will be displayed in the instrument panel.
