Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive comprises a range of technologies, optimally configured for each specific model series and designed to enhance safety and comfort when driving. An innovative stereo camera system, for example, ensures that you are able to see in three dimensions. It provides you with 360° all-round visibility and creates a precise picture of the environment in which you are driving. Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive also includes DISTRONIC PLUS proximity control with STEER CONTROL, as well as Night View Assist Plus. Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive uses the various data generated by these new technologies to evaluate specific driving situations, recognise potentially dangerous situations and react within a split second to provide you with appropriate measures to counteract the particular circumstances – for example with autonomous braking action or a clear warning alert.


The additional safety, assistance and lighting systems that are now linked together in optimal fashion through Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive include: BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist , Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus, Night View Assist Plus, PRE-SAFE® PLUS, ATTENTION ASSIST, Parking package with optional 360° camera, MAGIC BODY CONTROL, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Crosswind Assist and Traffic Sign Assist with wrong-way warning function.
