The ultimate in road contact. The least frictional losses between engine and wheel, too. 4MATIC all-wheel drive lets your vehicle become one with the road. For when all wheels have direct drive power, the result is a forwards thrust you can really feel. The 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive system ensures the best possible relation between dynamics, traction and efficiency in all driving conditions. Torque is distributed to the front and rear axles in a fixed ratio of 45 : 55. The Mercedes-Benz engineers decided on this torque split as it offers the best conditions for safe handling and optimal traction. The system works together with the ESP® Electronic Stability Program, which is standard in all Mercedes-Benz passenger cars. And instead of differential locks it uses the electronically controlled 4ETS Electronic Traction System.

This switches on automatically if one or more wheels loses its grip on the road surface, and brakes each wheel individually. At the same time torque is increased to the wheels with sufficient traction.
