Congratulations on your new purchase!
The Distronic Plus with steering assist feature is a convenience and safety feature included in most new Mercedes-Benz vehicles. It functions as an automatic cruise control system, which can help take the stress out of driving in certain situations, like congested traffic.
Here’s everything you need to know about Distronic Plus with steering assist and how it works in your Mercedes vehicle:
- Maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front of you
- Able to automatically accelerate your vehicle and apply up to 50% braking power
- Detects if additional braking power is needed in order to avoid collision
- Monitors lateral movements and can adjust your lane behavior when driving at low speeds
In order for Distronic Plus with steering assist to function, you will need to have both hands on your steering wheel. Look for a green steering wheel on your vehicle’s instrument cluster—if it’s illuminated, you’re good to go!
