We have been waiting for a while, but finally the 4MATIC models are ready to hit the road. The 4MATIC system is a permanently active all wheel drive system, which will have no lag. This gives the driver so much more control over the vehicle, in conflicting driving conditions.
A standard feature to support the 4MATIC system, is the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and the Traction System 4ETS. This will activate the brakes should the car get into a spin, while at the same time increases the torque to the wheels that have good traction at the time of the incident.
