What Does DISTRONIC PLUS® on Mercedes-Benz Offer?

DISTRONIC PLUS® is an advanced adaptive cruise control system. It turns on when you press the cruise control button on your Mercedes-Benz and uses radar to monitor the gap between your Mercedes-Benz vehicle and the car in front of you. This lets you move with the flow of traffic better than a standard single-speed cruise control system. With DISTRONIC PLUS®, your Mercedes-Benz E-Class or Mercedes-Benz GLE will automatically brake and accelerate, thus keeping a safe distance between your vehicle and the one in front.

At What Speeds Does DISTRONIC PLUS® Work?

DISTRONIC PLUS® works at a variety of speeds, from 0 to 125 mph. Thus, you can drive around SR 4 with an added peace of mind. By using as much as 40% of the vehicle’s braking speed, DISTRONIC PLUS® is able to keep a safe distance in stop and start traffic. Need more than 40%? If more braking force is required, DISTRONIC PLUS® on Mercedes-Benz will alert you.


What If There’s No Vehicle in Front of Me?

If traffic clears up on 9th street, and there’s no vehicle in front of you, DISTRONIC PLUS® works in the same way as the regular cruise control system at speeds from 20 to 125 mph. If you have been stopped for more than 3 seconds, you can reactivate the system by pulling the lever towards you or tapping the gas pedal.

How Do I Activate DISTRONIC PLUS®?

All you have to do is push the stalk on the left-hand side of the steering column up or down until its resistance increases or decreases speed by 1 mpg. At the same time, pushing past the point of resistance lets you increase or decrease speed up to 5 mph.
