Been reading up on coverage of the A45 AMG from the Geneva Motor Show.

Apparently the 4Matic is specially designed for the A45 / CLA 45 AMG platform.

You can actually achieve a rear wheel bias with the AWD system. That is pretty impressive if you ask me. This could mean over 60% power sent to the back.


Just one more month until its released. Who else is excited?!

CLA 4Matic front-rear power transfer bias

So the 4Matic system will send as much as 100% of power to the rear.

For the record, I also sampled a 4Matic all-wheel-drive system that incorporates a power takeoff in the seven-speed DCT, and an electronic clutch on the rear differential that dials in as much rear torque as conditions call for, between 100 percent front-wheel drive and nearly 100 percent rear if the fronts are in mid-air or on wet glare ice. The system is supposedly lighter than most as well.
