Parking and exiting a space made easy: Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC makes finding a parking space as well as parking in both parallel and transversal spaces easier; it also assists when leaving a parallel parking space. It automatically steers the vehicle into parking spaces and frees the driver from having to steer and brake.
If the vehicle travels slower than 30 km/h, the system indicates with a "P" symbol and a directional arrow in the multifunction display of the instrument cluster that it has located a suitable parking space. By default the system looks on the right side of the road, when the left-side turn indicator is activated also on the left side of the road.
If the driver changes into reverse gear, confirms the parking selection shown and drives no faster than 10 km/h, the active Parking Assist system carries out the steering manoeuvre on its own. The driver only needs to operate the accelerator and brake pedal; parking is complete in a maximum of seven moves.
The electronic parking aid PARKTRONIC monitors the front and rear of the vehicle during manoeuvring and warns the driver when it detects a potential collision. It is active at a speed of up to 18 km/h.
Standard equipment for the GLS 500 4MATIC and Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC and in conjunction with the Parking package incl. 360-degree camera.
