Here at Mercedes-Benz of Jacksonville, we make it easy to find the perfect luxury car. Whether you need a pre-owned model or a brand new vehicle, we’re here to help. We can also help you make one of the biggest decisions of the car buying process. Picking the right drivetrain is important. Depending on what you want out of a car and what kind of obstacles you decide to tackle, one of these options might serve you better than another.

One drivetrain option that you’ll find on our lot is front-wheel drive. This is offered on vehicles like the 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Coupe. The drivetrain usually gives a car better handling in inclement weather like snow, though that’s not generally a problem here in Jacksonville. Front-wheel drive cars can also offer other benefits, like more interior room or better fuel economy.

Rear-wheel drive is one of the most common drivetrains found on our lot. Cars like the Mercedes-AMG® C63 S Sedan and Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Sedan are meant to offer top performance and an exhilarating driving experience. These models can take on corners at higher speeds than a front-wheel drive car can, but they’re not as reliable in bad weather.

Of course, we also offer models equipped with 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. This system is designed to help you take on anything. Bad road conditions and harsh weather aren’t an issue for an all-wheel drive car. Plus, these systems don’t need to be engaged manually, like a four-wheel drive system does. It’s always on and ready for anything, even if the driver is not. Many of our cars, like the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E 300 Sedan actually offer a choice between rear-wheel drive and 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, so it’s easy to find a model that’s perfect for you.
