Winter Weather Driving Confidence in your Mercedes-Benz Vehicle


As wintertime is fast approaching, many drivers in the market for luxury vehicles ask themselves: "are Mercedes-Benz cars good in the snow?" Mercedes-Benz vehicles offer safety features that give Central PA drivers peace of mind on the roads during snow and other winter weather. Mercedes-Benz models also provide a number of beneficial handling features that increase traction and control.

Mercedes-Benz Safety Features for Winter

Electronic Stability Program (ESP®): ESP® features the Electronic Traction System that detects signs of wheel slippage. This keeps the vehicle on track by sending torque to the front wheel with better grip when it detects the wheels are slipping.

LED Daytime Running Lights, Headlamps and Taillamps: Snow decreases visibility during the winter months. LED daytime running lights help to make your car more visible to other drivers which lessens your chance of having an accident. LED headlamps help to increase your visibility at night, while LED taillamps signal to the drivers behind you when you are breaking or turning.

Mercedes-Benz Performance and Handling Features for Winter

4MATIC® AWD: To increase traction on icy roads, Mercedes-Benz vehicles can be equipped with our all-wheel drive system, 4MATIC® AWD.

4-wheel Independent Suspension: 4-wheel independent suspension with McPherson struts and wishbones in the front result in better handling and ride quality. This feature helps your Mercedes-Benz traverse unplowed roads better.
