It’s no surprise you’ll find almost all Mercedes-Benz SUVs with standard all-wheel drive. In fact, only the GLK has optional all-wheel drive; the ML, GL, R and G-Class all have all-wheel drive standard. Mercedes also has a number of cars, not just SUVs, that offer all-wheel drive, including the C, CL, E and S-Class.

In the entry-level range are the C-Class for sedans and the GLK-Class for SUVs. The C300 with all-wheel drive starts at $37,100, and the GLK350 with all-wheel drive is $36,600.  

Look for the “4matic” designation, as that’s how Mercedes indicates the car has four-wheel power underneath.
