What is Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive?

Mercedes-Benz SUV 4matic

Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system is an advanced system that provides enhanced traction on unpredictable road surfaces. Whether you drive a compact crossover like the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4MATIC® or a midsize SUV like the Mercedes-Benz GLS 580 4MATIC®, you’ll navigate Kettering with confidence — no matter the weather. Just a few highlights of Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® include:

  • Better fuel economy than standard AWD systems
  • Maintain road grip in any weather conditions
  • Active monitoring and adjustment for changing terrain and road surfaces
  • Fully integrated AWD system that sends power to each wheel as needed

How Does Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® Work?

Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® works the same way whether you drive a Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4MATIC® or a Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 4MATIC®. Here’s a breakdown of all the ways this system adds peace of mind to your Springboro drives:

  • 4MATIC® fine-tunes braking, steering, and acceleration by constantly adjusting the power it sends to each wheel. In other words, your vehicle scans the terrain and adapts in real time so you’re always in control.
  • When you turn a corner, your outer wheels drive a longer path than your inner wheels. To account for this imbalance, 4MATIC® monitors wheel spin and makes adjustments if you risk losing traction.
  • Road surfaces can change in an instant while you’re out on the road in Oakwood. 4MATIC® continually monitors the surface of the road ahead — so even if a sudden patch of ice surprises you, you can rest assured that 4MATIC® saw it coming!
