The award-winning Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC is a permanent all-wheel-drive system that delivers optimal traction, whatever the road condition, for maximum confidence and handling control.
4MATIC incorporates the 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS), which monitors each wheel for slippage and individually brakes wheels to maintain the balance of power. By continuously ensuring that power goes to the wheels with grip, 4MATIC can help get you going, even if only one wheel has traction.
In addition, with 4MATIC, you get the outstanding control of all-wheel drive without sacrificing true sport-sedan driving enjoyment. With 60% of the overall torque distributed to the rear wheels, crisp steering and the balanced feel of a rear-wheel-drive vehicle are retained, making any Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC model a joy to drive in any season.
Finally, the simple, yet sophisticated, 4MATIC permanent all-wheel-drive system uses few mechanical components. This reduces wear-and-tear on expensive internal parts, allows for a more comfortable ride, and is ultimately a relatively lightweight system, which translates to improved fuel economy.
