4MATIC is powered by a 7 speed automatic transmission. This works
alongside other features of the car such as ABS (Antilock Braking
System), 4-ETS (4-wheel Electronic Traction System) and ESP® (Electronic
Stability Program) to precisely manage the demands of each wheel.
When driving in a straight line, all four wheels normally rotate at the same rate. Rounding a corner, however, forces the two outside wheels to travel a longer path than the inside wheels. That means the left and right wheels must be able to rotate at different speeds. 4MATIC continually monitors the speed of each wheel to know when it's turning at the proper speed, or not, in every situation.
The vehicle remains stable at all times no matter how power is
distributed across the four wheels. Light and nimble or powerful and
efficient, 4MATIC is the perfect traveling companion for all seasons.
