What’s Included with the Mercedes-Benz Driver Assistance Package?

Mercedes Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC


Many of today’s Mercedes-Benz vehicles offer incredible safety and driver assistance features as standard, but just as many models allow you to equip the Mercedes-Benz Driver Assistance Package—or the Driver Assistance Package PLUS—for even more advanced capabilities. We’ve laid out everything you need to know about the technologies you may encounter on your test drive.



Standard Mercedes-Benz Driver Assistance & Safety Features

First things first: what driver assistance features can you expect to receive as standard? Technologies like Active Brake Assist, ATTENTION ASSIST®, and Blind Spot Assist are standard on most Mercedes-Benz vehicles in today’s lineup, and you might find even more standard features (like PRESAFE® or PARKTRONIC®) if you choose a model on the more expensive side of the lineup. 


Up Close with the Mercedes-Benz Driver Assistance Package

With that said, virtually all Mercedes-Benz vehicles give you the option to upgrade with the Driver Assistance Package or the Driver Assistance Package PLUS. Here’s a closer look at both options.

Mercedes-Benz Driver Assistance Package Features:

  • Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®: Keeps you moving at a set speed, and adjusts your speed in response to the presence of other drivers
  • Active Steering Assist: Keeps you centered in your lane at all times
  • Evasive Steering Assist: Executes more controlled emergency maneuvers when you take evasive action
  • Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function: Detects potential collisions and adjusts your braking pressure accordingly
  • Active Emergency Stop Assist: Automatically slows and stops your vehicle if an imminent collision is likely to occur
  • Active Speed Limit Assist: Automatically detects changes in the speed limit and adjusts your set speed accordingly
  • Active Lane Keeping Assist: Returns you to the center of your lane if you cross over a road line
  • Active Blind Spot Assist: Returns you to the center of your lane if you start to move while another vehicle is in your blind spot
  • Active Lane Change Assist: Automatically transfers you to the lane of your choice when you leave the turn signal active for several seconds
  • PRESAFE® PLUS: Closes the windows and adjusts settings in order to minimize the threat of a collision
  • PRESAFE® Sound: Emits a sonic tone that protects the ears from damage in a collision
  • Route-based Speed Adaptation

On the entry-level 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 SUV, the Mercedes-Benz Driver Assistance Package delivers each of the aforementioned features in exchange for a price of $1,700.

Mercedes-Benz Driver Assistance Package PLUS

The Driver Assistance PLUS Package—which costs $1,950 on an entry-level 2022 GLE 350 SUV—includes all of the features seen above, plus Active Stop-and-Go Assist. Active Stop-and-Go Assist allows DISTRONIC® to continue operating in stop-and-go traffic, where the stops are less than one minute in length. Commuting through South Riding and Centerville has never been easier!

It’s also important to mention special standalone features, like PARKTRONIC®, which may be either standard or available in the model of your choice. With this technology, you can select an appropriate parking space and allow the vehicle to back you into position automatically!
