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.
At the heart of the AMG Performance 4MATIC system is a single-stage transfer case with an open planetary gear central differential that ensures rotational speed compensation between the axles. The force distribution of 40 : 60 between front and rear axle guarantees superbly confident, always predictable, handling characteristics.
And the all-wheel drive system does it without recourse to conventional differential locks. The wheels with insufficient grip are braked in a targeted manner while the drive torque transferred to the wheels with sufficient traction is increased. With these rapid, automatic braking impulses virtually the same effect can be achieved as with three differential locks.
This sports suspension system is based on the AIRMATIC package with ADS PLUS including the ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM, which improves driving dynamics together with the suspension and ride comfort both on and off the road. AMG spring struts reduce the roll angle further still and deliver outstanding cornering properties.
Only available for the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC.
