Benefits of Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel drive
While many all-wheel drive systems are nothing more than an all-wheel drive mechanism added to a two-wheel drive vehicle, 4MATIC all-wheel drive is fully integrated with the drive system and most vehicle systems. That means when wheel slip occurs and traction is compromised, the many Mercedes-Benz active safety and driver assistance features work in cooperation with the all-wheel drive system.
Through 4MATIC all-wheel drive, torque is distributed to both front and rear wheels through a center differential in normal driving conditions. When those conditions change, 4MATIC instantly reacts by sending power to the wheels with the most grip to provide the best traction possible. As you continue to drive with 4MATIC AWD, you’ll quickly gain confidence behind the wheel, no matter what Chicago winters throw your way.
