Active Parking Assist
Parking as if by magic.
Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive
Using the Active Parking Assist system from Mercedes-Benz, the vehicle looks for a suitable parking space and parks automatically at the touch of a button while the driver operates the accelerator and brake pedals.
At speeds below 35 km/h, Parking Assist starts to look for parking spaces automatically. If the vehicle is moving at less than 30 km/h, Parking Assist displays the letter "P" and a directional arrow in the instrument cluster to indicate that it has found a suitable spot.
All the driver has to do is engage reverse gear, confirm the parking request and keep below 10 km/h. The Active Parking Assist then completes the steering manoeuvre by itself.

Ultrasonic sensors in the PARKTRONIC system measure the distance in front of and behind the vehicle during automatic parking. The driver remains in control throughout the process and regulates the parking speed using the accelerator or brake. In just a few movements, the vehicle is parked parallel to the direction of travel.
Parking Assist includes a total of ten ultrasonic sensors – six in the front bumper and four in the rear – as well as an electronic control unit to process the sensor signals and calculate the best possible route into the space. This information is sent to the electromechanical power-steering unit, the electric motor of which makes the necessary steering movements independently. The automatic parking system works with great precision: the parking space only needs to be 1.2 metres longer than the vehicle.
