This feature is a radar-based cruise control that changes your speed to align with the vehicle in front of you. Some drivers move at inconsistent speeds, which can be both annoying and dangerous. With DISTRONIC PLUS, the GLC will be able to keep the cruise control on while automatically adjusting itself to stay a certain distance away from the vehicle in front of you.
