For the first time in 1986, Mercedes-Benz offered an all-wheel drive system, badged as “4Matic” in their then two year old mid-size sedan. A rear-wheel drive based system, this 4Matic all-wheel drive would send power to the front axles based on input from steering angle and the three ABS channels. This system allowed Mercedes-Benz customers to drive their cars anywhere with the confidence that all four wheels are capable of applying traction to the ground. Now on its fourth generation, 4Matic can be found on most models including many models from AMG. This W124 is an excellent example of where everything started and coupled with extensive recent maintenance and full California history, should make for a reliable and clean example for its lucky new owner.
