Cruising around in a Mercedes-Benz with 4MATIC® allows you to navigate the streets of West Bloomfield with assurance. Innovative design ups the expectations of a typical AWD vehicle, and creates a whole new driving experience for Mercedes-Benz owners.

What Make 4MATIC® Stand Out?

The 4MATIC® all-wheel drive is built from lightweight materials and integrates into the vehicle’s drivetrain- as well as safety and driver assistance features. The 4MATIC® also improves stability and traction through specialized systems created to help your vehicle overcome rough terrain including:

  • Electronic Stability Program (ESP®): This system responds to understeer, oversteer, and wheel spin by braking wheels individually, giving you the opportunity to correct steering and get back on track.
  • 4-Wheel Electronic Traction System (4ETS®): The 4ETS® uses sensors to detect wheel-spin, and pulses the brakes to stop it, then allocate torque to the wheel(s) with the strongest grip.

Advantages of Fully Integrated Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC®

While some automakers add AWD on as an afterthought, Mercedes-Benz has engineered their vehicles around it. This is a distinct difference that allows 4MATIC® vehicles to edge out other AWD options in Birmingham as a result of:

  • The 4MATIC® comes as standard on many Mercedes-Benz models. Though you can choose between two- and all-wheel drive vehicles, such as the C 300 and C 300 4MATIC®.
  • It’s an intelligent system that allocates power to the wheels that need traction the most.
  • Thanks to its sensors the 4MATIC® system reacts instantly to provide you the maximum control possible.
  • When extra traction isn’t needed the 4MATIC® runs in FWD to provide the most agile and sporty handling.

Vehicles Available with 4MATIC®

From cars to SUVs, the Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® can be found on many vehicles in the brand’s lineup. including:

  • Cars: CLA, C-Class, E-Class, CLS, SLC, SL, S-Class, and Mercedes-AMG® GT
