All-wheel drive – Traction in any situation

Forwards thrust on all wheels

4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive enables the vehicle to move off and accelerate powerfully – even on poor road surfaces and in adverse weather conditions. The 4MATIC is always active and requires no response time to intervene.

  • Enormously powerful: 4MATIC makes conventional differential locks unnecessary because 4ETS improves pulling away on slippery surfaces by means of .automatic brake impulses and increases stability during demanding driving manoeuvres
  • Supporting systems: The 4MATIC all-wheel drive system is supported by the ESP® Electronic Stability Program as well as the 4ETS Electronic Traction System
  • The choice is yours: The CLS Shooting Brake with permanent all-wheel drive is available in a diesel and a petrol engine version. There are two versions available: the CLS 350 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY and the CLS 500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY.
