Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® is a uniquely high-tech version of all-wheel drive that works with all four wheels individually to optimize traction. It’s a versatile system, allowing for agile handling and cornering in normal conditions, as well as incredible grip when the weather gets bad. And as the product of almost a century of all-wheel drive experience, 4MATIC® has a legacy that few other manufacturers can match.

How Does Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® Work?

Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® utilizes wheel-speed sensors to detect the onset of wheel-spin, which then causes the 4-Wheel Electronic Traction System4MATIC®) to pulse the brake for the specific wheel that’s slipping. This in turn sends torque back to the gripping wheel, allowing you to keep control even if only one wheel has traction. And because this system works with each wheel individually, it can react and adapt to just about any situation.
