The Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC Range

Mercedes-Benz is a brand famed for its prestige offering, and its 4MATIC range of all-wheel drive vehicles provides additional traction and enhanced stability for a unique driving experience in a multitude of conditions.

We have already explained what Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC is and how it works here, and with a diverse variety of cars available, including saloons, SUVs, and sporty AMG models, we have decided to highlight some of the best Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC models currently available:

Mercedes-AMG A-Class

As an exciting point of entry to the iconic AMG world, the AMG A-Class is anything but entry-level. Boasting scintillating performance, mean aesthetics, and a plethora of tech, it certainly stands out on British roads.

Coming as standard, the 4MATIC drivetrain system allows you to have maximum control over the 300+bhp produced by AMG A35 variants, or 400+bhp produced by AMG A45 S variants, when out on track or attacking British B roads on a summer's day. The car will automatically deploy power to any of the four wheels to optimise both performance, and safety, giving you additional confidence when driving in a spirited manner.

When you are feeling more relaxed, the AMG A-Class proves to be a suitable partner for everyday life. 4MATIC means it can handle tricky conditions such as rain or snow with ease, while comfortable ARTICO leather/DINAMICA microfibre performance seats round off the experience.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

One of the most popular Mercedes-Benz models ever produced, the C-Class has proven perfect for both personal and business use thanks to its comfortable driving experience and impressive practicality. The C-Class is also available in various bodystyles including estate, saloon, and cabriolet versions, allowing you to find an ideal match for your lifestyle.

The 4MATIC all-wheel drive system is available as an optional extra on a range of C-Class models. For example, individuals completing plenty of miles on the motorway during the work commute will enjoy the 4MATIC diesel variants, while those looking for efficient petrol powertrains will find the mild hybrid C-Class models attractive.

Regardless of which specification you opt for, you will have very few complaints when behind the wheel. Equipped with the latest MBUX infotainment system, the C-Class offers advanced tech such as augmented reality to further enhance your experience, while intelligent driver assistance packs are available to improve safety, too.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The godfather of the executive car class, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the benchmark for driving excellence, offering unrivalled levels of luxury and supreme comfort. It is arguably the greatest way to travel, especially when paired with the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.

As the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz saloon range, the S-Class offers the greatest level of practicality and space, as well as a distinct limousine-like silhouette. Other sleek features such as flush door handles and the iconic 3-pointed star sitting at the front of the car ensure this is a car that garners attention wherever it goes.

The 4MATIC all-wheel drive system is available with a variety of powertrains, including an S 400 diesel and a powerful 429bhp S 500 petrol, giving you greater control over this rather large car. AIRMATIC air suspension comes as standard across the range and compliments the drivetrain system well, ironing out the harsh British road conditions that we have become accustomed to with ease.

EQC from Mercedes-EQ

As the first series production model of the Mercedes-EQ range, the EQC shook up the automotive space with its impressive all-electric range and unique driving experience. As well as a staggering total power output of over 400bhp, the EQC comes with 4MATIC as standard, cementing its place on this list.

On a single charge of the 80kWh battery, you are able to complete up to 255 miles before needing a recharge. When energy is depleted, charging is as straightforward as it gets. A full charge from 10 percent when using a dedicated wallbox takes 11 hours, while a 10 to 80 percent charge at a rapid charging station can take as little as 40 minutes.

Inside the EQC, there is an array of materials and state-of-the-art technology to choose from. For example, two high resolution digital screens are home to embedded software such as the MBUX infotainment system and the navigation and media hubs, allowing you to adjust various settings while on the move.

Mercedes-Benz G-Class

Driven by many a celebrity and footballer, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class (otherwise known as the G-Wagen) is one of the most desirable Mercedes-Benz models available thanks to its distinctive looks and one-of-a-kind nature. At its roots, it is a serious off-roader, making it an ideal match for the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.

It looks almost identical to the original G-Wagon that was first produced in the 1980s, but why change something that is not broken? The G-Class has had a range of modern touches to bring it up-to-date though, including exterior detailing, large alloy wheels, and an aggressive bodykit.

The boxy dimensions result in a car that is extremely spacious and comfortable, and with the usual plush details from Mercedes-Benz lining the interior, it is a very pleasant way to travel. Those that venture off-road will be utterly impressed by the G-Class' 4MATIC system in its natural habitat, while those that stay on it can reap the benefits of the all-wheel drive system when conditions get tricky, too.
