Air suspension height

After 4 weeks I'm still trying new things with my I-Pace.

I wonder which setting of the air suspension do most people use?

It seems there are three settings:

1. The highest for real offroading at low speeds
2. Middle - which sits more like an SUV and can be used at hiway speeds
3. Low - which feels sportier and less SUV like. And I assume is more efficient for the battery.

I've switched between the middle and low heights. Still not sure which one to use for daily driving.

Any advice? Which height do you use?

I normally drive in ‘Access Height’ (lowest setting) but switch to ‘Off-Road Height’ (highest setting) when in deep snow.

The car switches from Off-Road to Normal at approximately 50mph

I would prefer to drive at low height for most the driving I do, but noticed it won't stay in low after a certain speed. It automatically raises back to middle or normal height. Is there something I'm missing or is this how it works?

That's how it works ... says so in the manual

Great thread I was planning to start too!

Access height really is just that - a low height to make it easier to get out and to make the car look dead sexy and slammed.

Today it was pretty snowy and nasty in Denver so I put it in off-road mode and it helps keep the car a bit more free of debris.

Regards,

My car stays in Access Height even at highway speeds. I just confirmed it a few minutes ago. I got on the highway and the car went to Normal from Off-Road at 50mph. I then hit the button to go to Access Height and it did it and stayed there.

Interesting. It must need to push it a second time once you're off and rolling to get it into the lower mode again. I don't think you can make it stay in access height all the time without overriding the system?

Yeah, let us know. On freeway, 70+, I have been able to put back in access height, but it goes back to normal height seconds later.

I drive in normal but have it set to use access height when in park.
Two days ago I used high to go through a flooded road that was a detour to an even more flooded road I was on. It was pretty significant water about to just over half the tire depth is my best guess.

Thought I read it is more aerodynamic to be at a lower level and the car adjusts itself at higher speeds.
