Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive Functions

There are four different aspects drivers around Cheshire can use to their advantage with the 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system:

  • Braking, acceleration, and steering are impacted by the amount of force sent to the tires. When power distribution is expanded from just the front or rear wheels to all four, the force sent to the road is enhanced.
  • The 4MATIC® system monitors wheel spin when performing activities like cornering where the wheels will travel at different speeds. This ensures everything is working as it should in your vehicle.
  • When road conditions change due to ice, loose dirt, or snow, the 4MATIC® AWD system monitors conditions and adjusts brakes and engine output to match. It also works alongside other systems like the electronic traction system to maintain control.
  • To make the most of potent Mercedes-Benz performance, the 4MATIC® AWD system sends different amounts of torque to each wheel to maximize your handling.
