What Is Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive?

2020 MB GLE

When you get behind the wheel of a new Mercedes-Benz vehicle equipped with Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel drive, you’ll be able to navigate Niagara roads with the confidence that goes along with more control and more traction, even during snowy, icy winter conditions. This advanced all-wheel drive system offers the following advantages to drivers:

  • Better grip during inclement weather conditions, including rain, sleet, and snow
  • Improved fuel economy
  • Automatic power distribution to the wheels that can use it best

Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive Mechanics

How does the 4MATIC all-wheel system work for Niagara-on-the-Lake drivers? It enhances your driving abilities in four different ways:

  • The power sent to your car’s tires directly affects your ability to brake, accelerate, and steer smoothly. By expanding the power distribution from the front or rear wheels to all four wheels, the 4MATIC all-wheel system maximizes the force that can be sent to the road.
  • When you’re taking a corner, the outer wheels use a longer path than the inner wheels, causing them to rotate at different speeds. 4MATIC monitors the wheel spin, ensuring it is running soundly.
  • Loose gravel, ice patches, or a sudden rainstorm can alter the road surface in Pelham, lessening your grip and traction. Thankfully, the Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC AWD system monitors such conditions and automatically adjusts the brakes and engine output to account for them, working in tandem with an electronic traction system to keep you in control.
  • 4MATIC all-wheel drive sends varying amounts of torque to each wheel when you’re driving in high-performance conditions, maximizing your handling and confidence as you head down the road.
