Question Your feedback on AVS vs standard F-Sport suspension

350 F-Sport owners, have you driven both the AWD or RWD and can share any differences between the Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) equipped RWD model and the standard F-Sport suspension in the AWD model. Or you might have tried a 250 F-Sport as well which doesn't have AVS that you can comment on differences.

On paper, "AVS improves handling yet also improves ride comfort over non-AVS-equipped models since it automatically adjusts damping force to road conditions".


So ultimately, what I'm looking for:

1. With AVS, is ride comfort better than the standard F-Sport suspension and in which modes? (Eco, Normal, Sport S, Sport S/S+)

2. With AVS, is handling and body roll improved over the standard F-Sport suspension and in which modes? (Eco, Normal, Sport S, Sport S/S+)


Thanks!

Just for clarification, at least in the US, the 350 F Sports in both RWD and AWD format have the AVS.
