What Is Mercedes-Benz DISTRONIC PLUS®?

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The DISTRONIC PLUS® active cruise control system maintains an even distance behind traffic ahead of you. This system uses radars to monitor the distance between your Mercedes-Benz model and the vehicle in front of you to help you better move with the flow of traffic while keeping a safe distance from other vehicles. DISTRONIC® is available in most new models, including the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 and the Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV. Learn more about our models with the DISTRONIC PLUS® feature at Mercedes-Benz of North Scottsdale in Phoenix.


If your Mercedes-Benz model is equipped with this driver assistance feature, we can help you learn how to use it to enhance your Scottsdale drives. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Much like a normal cruise control system, the DISTRONIC PLUS® controls are located on a lever attached to your steering column.
  • To set your cruising speed, move the lever up or down. You can then fine-tune your speed by moving the lever up to speed up, or move it down to slow down. It changes your speed by one mile per hour.
  • If you press the lever hard, it changes the speed by five miles per hour.
  • To cancel your cruise control setting, push the lever away from you or press the brakes.
  • If you want to resume the last set speed, simply pull the lever toward you.
  • A knob on the end of the lever adjusts the following distance behind the vehicle ahead of you. It shows the distance on the central screen.
  • If the traffic ahead stops completely, the DISTRONIC PLUS® system will bring your car to a stop. If the stop is longer than three seconds, you can resume the system by tapping the gas or pulling the lever toward you.

As with any cruise control system, DISTRONIC PLUS® should only be used on highways, and the driver should remain aware of their surroundings at all times. If you want to learn more about this feature, you should check your vehicle’s owner’s manual or contact Mercedes-Benz of North Scottsdale, your local Mercedes-Benz dealer.

What Is DISTRONIC PLUS® with Steering Assist?

The DISTRONIC® Steering Assist feature helps keep your Mercedes-Benz vehicle in its lane. It uses sensors to monitor lane markings as well as the vehicle’s surroundings to make proper steering adjustments, compensating for curves and monitoring traffic. DISTRONIC PLUS® Steering Assist also monitors driver conditions such as if the driver’s hands are still on the wheel. This additional level of safety and convenience supplies more peace of mind on the hectic streets of Mesa.
