    Is there a listing of the exact height for each level anywhere? (And if anyone has a comparison with the S85 with air suspension that would be very much appreciated.)

    Dynamics on how the active air suspense will handle when corning is to be announced, but I can expand upon the height levels. Manual Adjustments are as follows:
    • Normal height = 6”
    • High Level 1 = 0.90” taller; When the vehicle accelerates above 19 mph, the clearance adjusts back to Normal height.
    • High level 2 = 1.3” above Standard and can be used for ascending a steep driveway or fording deep snow. Clearance reverts to High Level 1 above 10 mph.
    • Low Level = 0.79” under Standard; Active Air Suspension will automatically lower the vehicle for highway driving to improve aerodynamics. Low Level is also accessible from the touchscreen for loading/unloading of passengers. When the vehicle begins driving the clearance adjusts back to Normal height.
    • The suspension will also self-level the car. For example if you load a lot of weight in the trunk the vehicle will remain level.

    Model X speeds are pretty different from the above. Here's what the manual says.
