Excellent handling on any surface – thanks to 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive in combination with ABS, ESP® and the 4ETS Electronic Traction System. Off-road or on-road, in rain, ice or snow, the traction, driving dynamics and driving stability are boosted.
Excellent handling characteristics on each and every ground – the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel system and the AMG sports suspension based on AIRMATIC with ADS PLUS deliver ride comfort and optimum traction both on the road and beyond.
Moving off or accelerating on snow, wet roads or loose ground – under these conditions ASR acceleration skid control reduces wheel slip to prevent the vehicle from skidding.
Safe and relaxed downhill driving: this system allows a speed to be set between 2 and 18 km/h for steep descents, which is then maintained - within the limits of physics - with the help of the engine management system, transmission control and brake interventions.
In critical handling situations the Electronic Stability Program ESP® can keep the vehicle from skidding. With targeted brake interventions on individual wheels ESP® reduces oversteer or understeer tendencies and thus increases handling safety.
Electronic Traction System (4ETS) for all-wheel drive
This automatic and autonomous system can, within a given speed range, use brake interventions to keep individual drive wheels from spinning when starting off or accelerating or both drive wheels from momentarily spinning on bends.
