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

Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive

Compared to rear- or front-wheel drive, Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® offers enhanced traction on Cleveland roads — and so much more. This system preserves the excellent fuel economy of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, so you won’t have to choose between fuel-efficiency or greater driving confidence. 4MATIC® is available for most new vehicles from the brand and can conquer everything from rain to sleet to snow.

What Does 4MATIC® All-Wheel Do?

4MATIC® is an intelligent all-wheel drive system, meaning it sends power to the wheels and tires that need it most depending on the driving situation. It works in the following ways to give you more confidence on Westlake roads:

  • Your car’s tires play a larger role in performance than you might realize. 4MATIC® capitalizes on this, and expands braking, acceleration, and steering power to all four tires, rather than just two.
  • The wheels of your car rotate at different speeds during cornering, because the outside wheels take a longer path than the inside wheels. 4MATIC® was designed to detect wheelspin and can brake wheels individually at the onset.
  • Driving surfaces can change on a dime, but the 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system is as adaptable as it is intelligent. It monitors the roads ahead and can adjust the brakes and engine to accommodate.
  • For sporty driving, 4MATIC® changes the amounts of torque being sent to each wheel, so handling is more responsive.
