DISTRONIC PLUS® is an active cruise control system that does much more than regulate your speed. Unlike standard single-speed cruise control systems, DISTRONIC PLUS® also monitors the distance between you and the vehicle ahead. This helps you stay with the flow of traffic more safely. You can find DISTRONIC® on a wide range of new Mercedes-Benz vehicles, such as the Mercedes-Benz CLA coupe and GLA SUV. Read on to learn more about DISTRONIC PLUS® and how it works!
