THe 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLA will feature new 4MATIC all-wheel drive system


On the 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLA, the engineers have prepared a new variant of the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive system that features fully variables torque distribution, this time. It is now capable of offering high tractive power reserves and outstanding agility accompanied by great energy efficiency and driving safety. The most interesting and innovative components of the new 4MATIC contain the power take-off to the rear axle which is integrated in the 7G-DTC automated dual clutch transmission and the rear-axle gear with integrated, electro hydraulically controlled multi-disk clutch. The 4MATIC all-wheel drive is a completely new development tailored to the requirements of the new models with front-wheel drive. The torque distribution ratio is dependent on the activated shift program of the 7G-DCT dual clutch transmission.



In Sport and Manual mode the activation times are shortened and more torque is distributed to the rear axle in the interests of a dynamic, sporty driving style. The Mercedes-Benz CLA is available with high-torque turbo engines rated at up to 211 horsepower, with the newly developed 4MATIC and sports suspension. According to the carmaker, the best way to experience the 4MATIC is with the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG. The model is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo petrol engine capable of generating 400 Nm of torque. This vehicle will be in the end, one of the most powerful, dynamic and efficient 4-cylinder coupes in the area.



The 4MATIC model range also extends to the CL luxury coupe, the 4-door CLS Coupe and the CLS Shooting Brake. The all-wheel drive line-up offered by the carmaker also includes an exotic model in the guise of the SLS AMG Electric Drive. Four electric motors on the vehicle promise great thrust with selective drive torque distribution to the individual wheels. These are all the details revealed so far by the German manufacturer. worldcarfans
