Looking for options I found WebMatrix and the WebGrid solution.
I am just wondering if WebMatrix is the best option since it was release with the MVC 3 and I am using MVC 4.
I don´t want to spend time implement some old stuff if there is a newer solution.
Thanks a lot

WebMatrix is not suitable for developing MVC sites. MVC sites must be built as Web Applications and WebMatrix doesn't support those.

WebMatrix and WebGrid are two different things. WebMatrix is AND IDE that you use to develop applications using ASP.NET Web Pages, which is different from asp.net mvc. WebGrid is a grid that can be used in WebMatrix and ASP.NETMVC4.
You can most definitely use WebGrid in an MVC4 application with no problems. WebGrid works well for certain scenarios but if you need a more robust grid with built in features like paging, filtering and more, you would have to go with a 3rd party vendor
or build a grid yourself.
Personally, I like the KendoUI Grid. They have extensions for ASP.NET MVC that make it very easy to use KendoUI in an MVC application.
