FAQ about Mercedes and RWD, FWD and AWD

What is the Mercedes 4×4 called?

Mercedes-Benz’s four-wheel-drive vehicles are called 4Matic. 4Matic is a four-wheel-drive system that delivers power to all four wheels. This allows for greater grip and traction.

Does Mercedes have 4 wheel drive?

4MATIC all-wheel-drive is available in almost every Mercedes-Benz model. 4MATIC is ready for any terrain, whether it’s snowy or slippery, rainy or dry. Mercedes-Benz models with 4×4 drive systems are the CLA, C Class, E-Class, S-Class, CLS, GLA, GL​​​​C and GLE. You can feel the difference by getting behind the wheel of one of these Mercedes-Benz models.

Can you turn off 4MATIC?

You can easily turn off the 4 wheel drive in your Mercedes-Benz. Flip the “test lever”, located between the expansion chamber and wind screen fluid tank, to disable the 4-Matic operation. This will completely bypass the transfer box and make it 100% 2WD.
