DISTRONIC PLUS® with PRE-SAFE® Brake

DISTRONIC PLUS® with PRE-SAFE® Brake

A Mercedes-Benz innovation, DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control uses radar-based technology to adapt your set speed in response to the flow of traffic ahead, automatically slowing until your path is clear again. If the vehicle ahead slows to a stop, DISTRONIC PLUS can brake to a full halt, then resume automatically when traffic starts going.

Disclaimer

DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not react to stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and lane layout of the road or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. After braking the car for stopped traffic ahead, system resumes automatically only if traffic pauses for less than 3 seconds.
