What EXACTLY is 4-matic ?
Is 4-matic a full time 4 wheel drive system, meaning the car is always powered by 4 wheels all the time no matter what the driving conditions are ?
Or is it 2WD until it senses slipping, and only then do the 2 front wheels get engaged and only then is the car powered by 4 wheels?
Can someone give me a definitive answer on this pls.
I have hear differing answers on this.
