Mercedes-Benz 4Matic Models Prove To Be Perfect Date Companion

Although some critique all-wheel drive systems for restricting driver involvement and enjoyment, there’s no doubt that they add an extra layer of versatility over traditional front- and rear-wheel drive vehicles.

And according to Mercedes-Benz, all-wheel drive can also prove to be the perfect date companion.

In a new commercial promoting the German firm’s 4Matic system, we get to see how an all-wheel drive C-Class can handle the most difficult road conditions, including deep and slippery snow. The GLE also manages to cope with the snow without breaking a sweat. This then all comes together for a couple of young love-birds.

Current Mercedes-Benz models offered with 4Matic systems include the A-Class, B-Class, C-Class, CLA, E-Class, S-Class, G-Class, GLA, GLC, GLE and GLS.

    what a stupid ad – mum encouraging dad to drive their kid in a storm – seriously!!!! n im sorry for saying this but that nerd looking kid has no chance of going on a date not until he makes his first million

    • Ameer Hassan Tajaldeen

      some one driving his pregnant wife to the hospital in a storm would have been a far much better idea

    • Growing Up in Snow Country

      With all due respect there is no snow storm in the commercial. Just your basic pedestrian snow you encounter living in snow country. The message, to me, is that you can safely shuttle your loved ones to their destination. When I lived in snow country country it was studded tires and chains.

    And they’ll grow up and do this…

    Unrealistic…but that’s what commercials do.

    That’s not a storm. You could have driven through this with bald tires and a rear wheel drive barge without traction lock. Those pampered kids should have been told to walk. As a side benefit, cold can help suppress overactive hormones. Yes I’m Canadian. Lol

    Looks to me a bit like that classic VW ad, but without the work context:
