Hello there!Love the ability to raise and lower vehicle also.
With air suspension the height of the car changes with the drive mode selector and the vehicles speed. Drive mode is the most obvious, and you’ll see an indicator that the car is moving up/down.Hello there!
To be clear, are you referring to the buttons in the trunk that allow you to raise and lower the car for loading/unloading (and allegedly for helping with connecting the tow hitch)? As far as I'm aware, the only other way you can control the height of the car is if you set it in off-road mode (in which case suspension goes all up).
Unless I'm mistaken?
I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to drive about every permutation of the features I cared about prior to buying.I’m looking to buy a 2020 XC60 T8 for my wife.
Is it worth purchasing the air suspension?

I love the suspension for everything else and I would definitely recommend it to despite the sales guy saying it wasn’t worth it. It was one of the main reasons for swapping from an Inscription to an Inscription Pro (plus the other toys)I found the air suspension to make a significant difference on the roads I took them over, and I'm very pleased I got it. I'd strongly recommend at least trying it out before you buy.
I only test driven non-air XC60 briefly, but it was OK. If you want to experience a really stiff suspension, take Audi Q5 for a test drive - you will feel each tiny bump on the road. Air suspension in XC60 is excellent and is well worth the cost.I didn't get it, mostly because I didn't want the B & W stereo. I had trouble finding one with air suspension and NO B & W (which is great, but not something I need or would want).
I personally think the XC60 has a very stiff suspension. When I test drove the air suspension, it seemed way smoother.
I will likely lease another XC60 (I LOVE mine) when this lease is up. I expect I'll special order just to get the air suspension.
You are correct that the 19 inch tires will offer a softer ride.One thing to also keep in mind (sorry if it's too obvious!): I would think air suspension with the 19" rims would offer a softer ride than when it's paired with 22", so that's yet another data point to look at when testing out cars. Our XC60 actually being my wife's car, I knew she'd prefer the plushest ride, so I went with air suspension and 19" rims.
