Active Brake Assist

Driving is an exercise in tracking many different moving and stationary things, including other cars, pedestrians, or even road blockage. Active Brake Assist uses radar to detect possible obstacles. It then warns drivers of them. It can also control power when a driver begin to brake, or even autonomously brake up to 65 mph.


The most important piece to having a safe driving experience is a driver who is alert, awake, and ready to deal with road hazards effectively. ATTENTION ASSIST® tracks up to 70 different driving behavior details and will notify drivers if they are beginning to show signs of drowsiness or a reduced response time.

Distance Pilot DISTRONIC®

One of the coolest steps toward autonomous driving is adaptive cruise control. Drivers who choose a model of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA with Distance Pilot DISTRONIC® can enjoy a system that will maintain a safe following distance, and a good highway speed, with significantly less driver input.

These 2018 GLA SUV Driver Assist Systems are no substitute for an alert and qualified driver behind the wheel, but they can lend a helping hand. If you would like to learn more about a Mercedes-Benz GLA in Scottsdale AZ, contact a member of the Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale team today!
