A transfer case, integrated within the 7-speed automatic transmission, feeds power to the front axles. A limited-slip centre differential provides balanced power between the front and rear axles. And the 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS) uses sensors already in the vehicle for its Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Program (ESP®),to precisely manage the torque demands of each wheel.
From a menacing winter storm to a challenging corner, 4MATIC all-wheel drive makes the most of available traction by precisely engaging all four wheels. More than letting all four tires do the work equally, 4MATIC features a number of advanced, and quick-thinking innovations to empower each wheel individually as conditions change. So, whether you're starting out on a slippery patch, encountering a sudden change in the weather, or even rounding a dry curve, 4MATIC helps you stay in control.
4MATIC is far more than an all-wheel drive mechanism added to a two-wheel drive vehicle. It's fully integrated not just with the drivetrain but the many safety and driving assistance systems of a Mercedes-Benz. Under normal conditions, the compact, lightweight system channels the engine's torque to the front and rear wheels through a centre differential, for sporty balance and agile handling. When traction demands change, 4MATIC reacts instantly and expertly to maximise control. By sending power to the wheels that can use it best, it helps you feel a rewarding sense of confidence in any season.
The 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS) is an innovation pioneered by Mercedes-Benz that helps send power to gripping wheels if other wheels slip. Using the same wheel-speed sensors as the Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Program (ESP®), 4-ETS can detect the onset of wheelspin and rapidly pulse the brake at the slipping wheel. This sends torque back to the gripping wheel, which can apply the engine's power to the road. Working automatically on all four wheels, 4-ETS can help get you going even if only one wheel has grip.

With Group 1 car finance, you can benefit from:
1. Brand-new cars from official retailers.
2. Franchise retailers with expert teams.

A car finance agreement with Group 1 allows you to rent a car of your choice throughout your contracted period. At the start of the contract, you will be required to pay an initial fee as a deposit, followed by monthly payments over 2 to 4 years. Once the contract has come to an end, you will be required to hand the vehicle back to your local Group 1 dealership, or you may have the opportunity to make a final balloon payment, which would give you full ownership of the car.
Getting a car through finance with Group 1 offers the following benefits:
1. Build equity in the car.
2. Nothing more to pay when the payments are complete.
3. Sell the vehicle or trade it in for a new one.
4. No loss of money due to depreciation.
5. Low deposit and monthly payments.
6. Low APR.
Car finance at Group 1 is open to everyone; however, whether you will be accepted or not is usually down to your credit score. Before you apply, it is worth checking your credit score as some of the cheaper finance offers are only available to people with excellent credit ratings. Having a good credit score is the easiest way to get accepted for car finance, but it's not the only way. At Group 1, we have access to specialist funders who work with those who have a poor to average credit. Your monthly fee will be higher because you are considered a higher risk. If you keep paying your monthly instalments on time, then your credit score will improve.
The easiest way to calculate your monthly payments is to explore our new car offers, which will allow you to determine the best possible finance plans to suit you.
