What is 4MATIC® for Mercedes-Benz GLC?

Technically, the base model GLC can be bought without All-Wheel Drive, but most drivers choose the GLC with 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. This system gives you the confidence you need to tackle any less-forgiving terrain. Always ready to send torque to every wheel, 4MATIC® integrates with ESP®, or Electronic Stability Program, for maximum effectiveness in corners and slick conditions. It also incorporates a 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS®), which monitors wheel slip and sends a signal that ensures torque is sent to the wheels with the best grip, even if that’s only one wheel.

What is DYNAMIC SELECT for Mercedes-Benz GLC?

It’s like having five vehicles in one! DYNAMIC SELECT is a multimode drive program selector on the console that allows you to transform the car’s character with the turn of a knob. Four modes (ECO, Comfort, Sport and Sport+) alter the throttle response, shift points, steering effort, and optional AIR BODY CONTROL, plus the ECO Start/Stop and climate control efficiency. Finally, a fifth “Individual” mode allows you to create a mode of your own, for the perfect drive style that’s right for you.
