DISTRONIC PLUS in the 2018 CLA 250 4MATIC

Ever have one of those annoying experiences on the road where the person in front of you doesn’t move at a consistent speed? We’ve all had those. You just want to take your mind off of driving for a little bit by allowing the car to go on cruise control, but the car in front of you forces you to continually brake and speed back up. Well thanks to DISTRONIC PLUS, you won’t have to worry about that anymore. DISTRONIC PLUS is an intelligent cruise control feature that works by monitoring the speed of the vehicle in front of you and adjusting the speed in the CLA 250 4MATIC automatically rather than making you do it manually. This is obviously a convenient feature, but it also provides a little extra safety as well since it can brake if needed.
