DISTRONIC PLUS in the 2018 AMG® CLA 45
Maybe not everyone on the road wants to cruise as fast as you. That’s not a huge deal - until you’re stuck behind them. At that point it’s an endless cycle of speeding up and slowing back down. The 2018 AMG® CLA 45 is equipped with DISTRONIC PLUS intelligent cruise control, a system which makes driving less of a hassle and more convenient. When engaged, DISTRONIC PLUS will set a certain distance between you and the car in front of you. As they slow down, so will you. When they speed up, you’ll do so until you hit the speed the cruise control was originally set at. There’s no resetting and readjusting the cruise control. Relax. The AMG® CLA 45 has you covered.
Mercedes-Benz and BMW have been going head to head for years, but in this matchup of similar models, we think there’s no doubt the AMG® CLA 45 wins out.
