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

The Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive is designed to enhance capability and control by continually redistributing power to the wheels with the best grip. This system is fully integrated into your Mercedes-Benz vehicle for a comprehensive driving experience and is available in four different versions, including some Mercedes-Benz AMG® performance vehicles.

  • 4MATIC® Variable All-Wheel Drive: Available on certain Mercedes-Benz models, 4MATIC® Variable All-Wheel Drive can read road conditions and automatically adjust driving behavior to better suit your needs. This adaptability enables increased fuel efficiency while still keeping you safe.

This AWD variant adds dynamic performance and traction with a multi-disc clutch and AMG®-specific electrohydraulic control incorporated into the rear axle differential.
  • AMG® Performance 4MATIC® Permanent All-Wheel Drive: This permanent AMG® version of 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive expertly splits power between the front and rear wheels at varying degrees across sedans, coupes, cabriolets, and SUV models to enhance starting acceleration.
