What is Mercedes-Benz DISTRONIC PLUS®?

2020 Mercedes-Benz A 220

Mercedes-Benz DISTRONIC PLUS® is a potentially life-saving technology that helps Caledon drivers and beyond maintain speed and a safe distance from other vehicle’s in front of them. DISTRONIC PLUS® uses radar technology to track the distance between your car and the car ahead of you, and then it makes adjustments as needed. This system, in short, helps you stay with the flow of traffic and keeps you safe on those drives around Orangeville and beyond. Learn more about Mercedes-Benz DISTRONIC PLUS® with the service team at Mercedes-Benz Brampton then find out which models have this innovative safety technology.

Steps to Using DISTRONIC PLUS®

If your new Mercedes-Benz model is already equipped with DISTRONIC PLUS®, you’ll simply need to follow these few steps in order to utilize the system:

  • Find the DISTRONIC PLUS® controls on a lever attached to your car’s steering column.
  • Move that lever up or down to change the cruising speed while driving. If you move it up your car will accelerate. Move it down for a slower speed. If you press the lever gently, it will change your speed by one mile per hour increments.
  • Pressing the lever harder changes the speed by five miles per hour.
  • To abandon your current cruise control setting, lightly apply the brakes or push the lever away from you.
  • Pull the control toward you to continue the last speed that was set.
  • Use the knob at the end of the lever to set the correct distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. The central screen will show the distance interval that you set.
  • If you need to stop for longer than three seconds, gently press on the accelerator or pull the lever toward you to continue your prior speed and distance.

Only use DISTRONIC PLUS® on highways. When cruising through Georgetown, make sure you’re always aware of your surroundings and never rely completely on any driver-assistance technology. If you’re interested in learning more about this Mercedes-Benz technology, be sure to check out your owner’s manual or contact our service team in Brampton.

The Function of DISTRONIC PLUS® with Steering Assist

DISTRONIC PLUS® with Steering Assist only works when it senses that both of your hands are on the steering wheel and will work at speeds of up to 120 mph. Once activated, you’ll see a green steering wheel on the instrument panel. This system tracks lane markings as well as other vehicles around you to ensure safe distances. This system can also make any steering corrections needed to accommodate changes on the road.
