Stuttgart/Hochgurgl. The 4×4 family from Mercedes-Benz currently comprises more than 60 models. This means that a 4×4 technology solution tailored to the respective vehicle class is always available – from the new compact class model family and the vehicles of the C, E, S, CLS and CL-Class, through to the comprehensive range of SUVs and cross-country vehicles that make up the GLA, GLK, M, GL and G-Class ranges. Features common to all include high reserves of traction and outstanding agility, along with optimum handling safety and energy efficiency.
At this year’s 4MATIC Workshop taking place in the wintery conditions of Hochgurgl, Austria, the focus is squarely on the compact class model family. The A, B and CLA-Class are now all optionally available with the new generation of the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel-drive system featuring fully variable torque distribution. In addition, from March 2014 the new GLA will be joining the Mercedes-Benz SUV model range.
