Mercedes C-Class Coupe With 4MATIC Tows Snowboarder

Mercedes had decided that what it needs to take on BMW is a bit of Audi, and so it’s focusing on 4MATIC all wheel drive systems and offering them on more cars than ever before.

With the heavy snows that have hit the US recently, it was the perfect time to test a C-Class Coupe fitted with all-wheel drive and show just how fun it can be in the winter.

In these videos released by Mercedes Benz USA, a C350 4MATIC is towing a pro snowboarder behind. The idea here is to show what the system would be like in the real world.

the 4MATIC platform normally does a 45:55 front/rear torque split, but can send as much as 70% of the power to the rear if the conditions are right.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
