Satisfy Your Inner Control Freak with Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC®

January 3rd, 2012 by

As the name suggests, 4MATIC® is a highly proficient all-wheel drive system. What qualifies 4MATIC® as highly proficient? Mercedes-Benz has engineered it to not only engage all four wheels but also integrated it with innovations (i.e., 4-wheel Electronic Traction System [or 4-ETS]) so that vehicles equipped with the system (i.e., the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan, Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan and Wagon, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Mercedes-Benz CL Class, Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, Mercedes-Benz M-Class, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and Mercedes-Benz R-Class) can instinctively adapt to changes in road conditions. “…Whether you’re starting out on a slippery patch, encountering a sudden change in weather, or rounding a dry curve, 4MATIC® allows you to put your best foot forward,” explains Mercedes-Benz.1

Winter isn’t the only season drivers feel trepidation. Sure, ice and snow can be cumbersome, but so too can a rain-slicked hairpin turn or steep incline. Whether in a January snow storm or an April deluge, the lack of control drivers feel can be terrifying.

Like many things, the power of 4MATIC® is something you really need to feel firsthand to fully understand.
