4MATIC Banner with Logo and Drivetrain

For ultimate handling and control in Eugene, Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® takes all-wheel drive to the next level, building on tried-and-true driving technologies to deliver more grip, better fuel economy, and enhanced power distribution. Explore how 4MATIC® works with this guide from Mercedes-Benz of Eugene. 

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

Opting for 4MATIC® all-wheel drive on your new Mercedes-Benz gives you the confidence to tackle any weather or road conditions in Roseburg. This innovative system utilizes four methods for advanced traction and performance. 

  1. Equal power distribution: Rather than sending power only to the front or rear tires, evenly distributed power results in better braking, acceleration, and steering along Corvallis streets. 
  2. Monitored wheel spin: Whether you’re turning left or right in Springfield, the outside wheels always have a longer path, causing them to rotate at different speeds than the inside wheels. 4MATIC® keeps track of these variances and keeps all wheels on track. 
  3. Weather adjustments: Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® constantly monitors road conditions and adjusts outputs should you hit ice or snow on your travels. Stay in control regardless of slick streets or sudden downpours. 
  4. Performance boosts: If you find yourself in a high-performance driving situation, 4MATIC® has your back, sending adjusted torque to each wheel for maximum handling and peace of mind.
