TechArt’s new air suspension module is meant to sharpen the driving dynamics and give both the Porsche Cayenne as well as the Macan a sportier appearance.
When driving using the ‘Normal’ level, you’ll notice that the Macan‘s chassis has been lowered by 10 mm (0.39 inches) when compared to the standard air suspension. Kick the car into Sport Plus mode or Low Level mode and it will drop by an additional 20 mm (0.78 inches).
The only setting that remains unchanged is the Terrain Level mode – which makes sense since TechArt isn’t that interested in making your Porsche SUV more capable in going off-road.
As for the Cayenne, the body has been lowered by 22 mm (0.86 inches) in Normal Level and by 10 mm (0.39 inches) in Low Level.
Curiously, they did think about the practical aspect and made it easier to load luggage into your Macan by lowering the Loading Level from 40 mm (1.57 inches) to 50 mm (1.96 inches).
Furthermore, TechArt also added a unique feature in the ‘Automatic Parking Level’ – available on both SUV models. How this works is that after you lock the car, the body is automatically lowered by another 30 mm (Macan), 20 mm respectively for the Cayenne if Low Level was preselected.
Kind of how your old Citroen would lower itself when you put it into ‘Park’.
Naturally, TechArt thought about steel spring suspension models as well and is offering a range of sporty performance options such as sport springs and spacer kits.
