Mercedes-Benz has further improved this all-wheel-drive system, and uses the latest-generation system in the CL 500 4MATIC – the one that has already proved successful in the S-Class. 4MATIC is permanently active and therefore requires no response time to come to the driver’s aid in unfavourable weather and driving conditions. As a result, critical situations can be mastered more effectively and confidently.
