Mercedes is showing off the powers of its 4MATIC all-wheel drive system in a new video released by the brand, showing a C350 4MATIC Coupe towing a professional snowboarder. 

Mercedes says that to truly appreciate its all-wheel drive system, you have to see it in action, hence this video.

4MATIC equipped passenger cars incorporate a 45:55 front/rear torque split, though as much as a 30:70 bias toward the back tires is possible, depending on road conditions. The system aims at delivering sporty driving, yet predictable handling in all conditions.

The snowboarder in tow is Rob Kingwill, who puts the finishing touches on the video by jumping a G-Class.
