Who told you that?
AWD/4WD would get better grip, braking and stopping times especially with the new technology in luxury vehicles these days!

I mean if that was the case, why would they make 4-Matic versions in Mercedes S,E,C classes and why did they launch the X-Drive in the 7 series this year.

Clearly, there was a demand for these kind of systems!
Im gonna disagree with you here, how could you think that AWD/4WD would give you better braking ? wheres the logic in that? AWD will help you get started and start moving, and it will help you not get stuck in big/deep snow. But why in the world would it help you stop?

Your right, there is a demand for these systems, because they provide traction where a FWD or RWD can't. But it DOES NOT help with braking or stopping distances AT ALL.
