How Does Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive Work?

4MATIC® all-wheel drive works in several different ways to improve traction and handling. For one, Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® all-wheel drive boosts the amount of force that’s directed to the road by distributing power to all four wheels as opposed to the two front or rear wheels. What’s more, the 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system is able to maximize handling by sending different amounts of torque to each wheel when needed.

Additionally, when you turn your vehicle, your wheels rotate at different speeds, as the inside wheels are moving a shorter distance. 4MATIC® AWD regulates wheelspin to make sure the wheels are spinning and rotating as they should. The 4MATIC® system monitors road conditions as well, adjusting engine power and braking when things like ice patches, loose dirt, or rain suddenly arrive on your path.
