Mercedes-Benz GLC : Driving and driving safety systems / Speed control cruise control

Function of cruise control

Cruise control regulates the speed to the value selected by the driver.

If you accelerate to overtake, for example, the stored speed is not deleted. If you remove your foot from the accelerator pedal after overtaking, cruise control will resume speed regulation back to the stored speed.

You can store any speed above 15 mph (20 km/h) up to the maximum design speed.

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

Mercedes‑AMG vehicles: Cruise control is available up to a maximum speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

The segments between the stored speed and the end of the segment display light up in the speedometer.

System limits

Cruise control may be unable to maintain the stored speed on uphill gradients. The stored speed is resumed when the gradient evens out.

Change into a lower gear in good time on long and steep downhill gradients. Take particular note of this when driving a laden vehicle. By doing so, you will make use of the engine's braking effect. This relieves the load on the brake system and prevents the brakes from overheating and wearing too quickly.

Do not use cruise control in the following situations:

  • In traffic situations which require frequent changes of speed, e.g. in heavy traffic, on winding roads.
  • On slippery roads. Accelerating can cause the drive wheels to lose traction and the vehicle could then skid.
  • If you are driving when visibility is poor.
