What is Mercedes-Benz DISTRONIC PLUS®?

2019 mercedes-benz glc silver driving on road



DISTRONIC PLUS® active cruise control system helps you maintain your distance between your vehicle and the vehicles in front of you. Using radar technology, DISTRONIC PLUS® monitors the gap between your Mercedes-Benz vehicle and the car in front. Unlike a standard single-speed cruise control system, this Mercedes-Benz technology allows you to move with the flow of traffic. What’s more, the DISTRONIC® is available in most new models, including popular picks like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV. Learn more about the Mercedes-Benz DISTRONIC PLUS® feature at Mercedes-Benz of Bedford near Beachwood.

How Do I Operate DISTRONIC PLUS®?

The system is simple to operate. As long as your Mercedes-Benz model is equipped with the feature, just follow these steps:

  • DISTRONIC PLUS® controls are located on a lever attached to your steering column, much like an average cruise control system.
  • Moving the lever up or down sets your cruising speed, and you can further fine-tune your speed by moving the lever up to speed up, or move it down to slow down. Doing this changes your speed by one mile per hour.
  • If you want a bigger boost, press the lever hard to change the speed by five miles per hour.
  • To cancel your cruise control setting, push the lever away from you or press the brakes.
  • To resume the last set speed, simply pull the lever toward you.
  • To adjust the following distance behind the vehicle ahead of you, use the knob on the end of the lever. The distance will be displayed on the central screen.
  • In the event the Mayfield traffic ahead makes a complete stop, the DISTRONIC PLUS® system will bring your car to a stop as well. If the stop is longer than three seconds, you can resume the system by tapping the gas or pulling the lever toward you.

To ensure safe driving practices, the DISTRONIC PLUS® feature should only be used on highways, and the driver should remain aware of their surroundings at all times. For more information, read your owner’s manual or contact us at Mercedes-Benz of Bedford.

About DISTRONIC PLUS® with Steering Assist

DISTRONIC® with Steering Assist helps keep your Mercedes-Benz vehicle in its lane in the Cleveland streets. This feature monitors lane markings, as well as surrounding vehicles, and then makes steering adjustments to compensate for curves in the road. It also monitors traffic in the lane to the left to prevent overtaking vehicles from the right. If you upgrade to DISTRONIC PLUS® with Steering Assist, it’ll also monitor the driver’s hands to ensure they are still on the steering wheel. This additional level of safety and convenience supplies more peace of mind on the hectic streets of Cleveland.
