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

Street in Motion

Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® all-wheel drive enhances traction and driver control on Minneapolis roads without drastically weighing the vehicle down or affecting fuel economy. The best part? It’s available on a wide range of new Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Learn more about how it works below!

4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive: How it Works

How does the 4MATIC® system improve your driving experience on Wayzata roads? It uses intelligent technologies to allocate torque to the wheels that need it most on precarious or rapidly changing driving conditions.

  • The amount of force sent to your vehicle’s tires affect its ability to brake, steer, and accelerate. When your vehicle can send power to all four wheels as opposed to just two, it’s able to conquer a wider variety of conditions.
  • During cornering, the outside and inside wheels rotate at different speeds, because the outside wheels take a longer path. 4MATIC® monitors and corrects wheel-spin as it occurs to keep you firmly in control.
  • The 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system was designed to quickly adapt to changing road conditions using an electronic traction system.
  • The system sends different amounts of torque to each wheel, giving you a higher ride quality in high-performance driving situations.
