Mercedes-Benz GLC : Driving and driving safety systems / Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC

Function of Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC

Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC maintains the set speed on free-flowing roads. If vehicles in front are detected, the set distance is maintained, if necessary, until the vehicle comes to a halt. The vehicle accelerates or brakes depending on the distance to the vehicle in front and the set speed. The speed and distance to the vehicle in front are set and saved using the steering wheel.

Available speed range:

  • Vehicles without Driving Assistance Package: 15 mph (20 km/h) - 120 mph (200 km/h)
  • Vehicles with Driving Assistance Package: 15 mph (20 km/h) - 130 mph (210 km/h)

Plug-in hybrid: the adjustable set speed can be reduced due to the selected drive program. Observe the relevant notes in the Supplement.

Other features of Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC:

  • Adjusts the driving style depending on the selected drive program (fuel-saving, comfortable or dynamic)
  • Initiates acceleration to the stored speed if the turn signal indicator is switched on to change to the overtaking lane
  • Vehicles with Driving Assistance Package:
    • Reacts to stationary vehicles detected in urban speed ranges (except bicycles and motorcycles)
    • Takes one-sided overtaking restrictions into account on highways or on multi-lane roads with separate roadways (country-dependent)

Vehicles with Driving Assistance Package and Parking Package: if the vehicle has been braked to a standstill on multi-lane, separate roadways by Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, it can automatically follow the vehicle in front driving off again within 30 seconds. If a critical situation is detected when driving off, a visual and acoustic warning is given indicating that the driver must now take control of the vehicle. The vehicle is not accelerated any further.

Observe the notes on driving systems and your responsibility; you may otherwise fail to recognize dangers.
