Mercedes-Benz cars possess many attributes that make them special and memorable, from beautiful eye-catching designs and luxurious amenities, to potent powertrains that provide the performance you crave and the efficiency you need. Many Mercedes-Benz cars offer one of the most amazing attributes that you’ll only find in our inventory of Mercedes-Benz cars near Des Plaines, IL here at Mercedes-Benz of St. Charles — 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive.
What is 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive, you ask? It’s the automaker’s advanced, intelligent, and adaptive all-wheel system that engages each of the vehicle’s four wheels independently as conditions require. You see, most vehicles out on the road today drive only two wheels, typically the front wheels, or sometimes the rear wheels. The driving wheels which make contact with the road direct the engine’s power down onto the pavement, providing the vehicle with the traction it needs to move.
A sometimes perceived drawback with a two-wheel drive configuration is that only two drive wheels can make contact with the road. When you add two more drive wheels with an all-wheel drive system you double the engine’s contact with the road from two wheels to four, providing greater ability to grip the pavement’s surface. That’s where 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive from Mercedes-Benz comes into the picture.
Models like the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan or 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan offer both a rear-wheel drivetrain configuration and the available added traction and handling composure of 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive. 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive gives you four wheels contacting the ground instead of two and four contact points to direct power and torque from their potent engines directly to the road, enhancing grip and control.
It’s not just for icy and slippery street surfaces during winter or slick and rainy roads during wet weather — 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive is great during all seasons and in all conditions for extra handling prowess and added fun and excitement when you drive.
