Thanks to its 4MATIC all-wheel drive system the V-Class can tackle arduous road conditions better.Its excellent traction enhances its driving dynamics and improves its handling characteristics. Torque is distributed to the front and rear axles respectively in a 45 : 55 ratio. On slippery, slick ground the wheels with insufficient traction can be brakes with the help of the 4ETS Electronic Traction System. At the same time, drive torque is delivered to the wheels with good traction. As the all-wheel drive does not alter the vehicle's height, 4MATIC does not modify the underground car park suitability of the V-Class.
