Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC

Do you need a luxury vehicle that can handle Waipahu roads with ease? New Mercedes-Benz vehicles with 4MATIC® are some of the most capable around. You might be wondering, “What is 4MATIC®? Unlike many other all-wheel drive systems, 4MATIC® is built from lightweight materials and is fully integrated into the vehicle it powers. It’s an intelligent system that allocates power to the wheels that need it most, so you can cruise H1 or H3—and any road in between. Learn more below!

What Systems Make 4MATIC® Unique?

In addition to its lightweight build, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive uses specialized stability and traction systems to help your vehicle overcome rough island terrain. Two of its most important systems include:

  • Electronic Stability Program (ESP®): This system responds to wheel-spin, understeer, and oversteer by braking wheels individually, giving you the opportunity to correct steering and get back on track.
  • 4-Wheel Electronic Traction System (4ETS®): 4ETS® uses sensors to detect wheel-spin, and pulses the brakes to stop it, then distributes torque to the wheel(s) with the strongest grip.

Benefits of Fully Integrated Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC®

Mercedes-Benz understands that for an all-wheel drive system to operate at its full potential, a car needs to be engineered around it. Cue 4MATIC®. Some automakers offer all-wheel drive as an add-on—that’s not the case with Mercedes-Benz. Instead, you’ll get 4MATIC® as standard on many models, or you can choose between two- and all-wheel drive vehicles, such as the C 300 and C 300 4MATIC®. If a vehicle has 4MATIC® in its name, that means it was developed from start to finish for all-wheel-drive power.

Vehicles Available with 4MATIC®

Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® can be had on many vehicles in the brand’s lineup, including:
