Driver-Assist Technology
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has the most advanced driver-assist technologies, and active distance assist DISTRONIC is one of the best adaptive cruise control systems available. While taking the E 450 4MATIC Coupe over a mountain pass, we discovered the active steering assist can be a bit too aggressive in certain situations. When conditions are optimal, the system is amazing; when the road surface becomes abrasive, if lane lines are distressed or the lanes themselves are wider for winter safety, a driver could be surprised by an aggressive adjustment — or two. Our advice: take over the driving in these situations.
