Mercedes Speedtronic cruise control is a type of cruise control that limits your driving speed above a set number. Unlike conventional cruise control that you can override by accelerating, when Speedtronic is engaged, the car will not accelerate past the set speed.
If safety is your priority, almost all new Mercedes have the option to upgrade to the Driver Assistance Package or the Driver Assistance Package PLUS. Here’s what they offer:
Driver Assistance Package
  • Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC
  • Active Steering Assist
  • Evasive Steering Assist
  • Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function
  • Active Emergency Stop Assist
  • Active Speed Limit Assist
  • Active Lane Keeping Assist
  • Active Blind Spot Assist
  • Active Lane Change Assist
  • PRESAFE® Sound
And if you upgrade to the Driver Assistance Package PLUS, you’ll get all the features above, plus Active Stop-and-Go Assist.
