The new Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV is a vehicle that is designed for both luxury and performance. It’s all the hype right now, because, after all, its predecessor happens to be the best-selling Mercedes now. When it comes to tech, there is also no shortage of what it has to offer.

The 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV comes with a host of driver assistance systems that provide added safety and convenience. Its key features include:

1. MBUX infotainment system: This is one of the most advanced systems on the market today. It includes a high-resolution widescreen display, voice control, and a host of other features that will make your driving experience more enjoyable. The system is easy to use and provides you with all the information you need while on the road.

2. Active Brake Assist: This system uses sensors to detect pedestrians or other vehicles in the path of the GLC and will automatically apply the brakes if necessary to avoid a collision.

3. Active Distance Assist Distronic: This system uses GPS data to adjust the speed of the vehicle automatically, based on the posted speed limit. It can also help maintain a set distance from the vehicle in front, making stop-and-go traffic easier to manage.

4. Active Lane Keeping Assist: This system uses sensors to monitor lane markings and will provide steering input to keep the GLC in its lane. It can also help avoid collisions with vehicles or objects in adjacent lanes.

5. Active Parking Assist: This system can help the driver parallel park or back into a parking space. Using sensors, it will automatically steer the vehicle into the desired spot while the driver controls the accelerator and brake.

6. Active Blind Spot Assist: This system uses sensors to monitor for vehicles in the GLC’s blind spot and will provide a warning if one is detected. It can also help avoid collisions by automatically applying the brakes if necessary.

7. Active Steering Assist: This system uses sensors to monitor the surrounding traffic and can provide steering input to help keep the GLC in its lane. It can also help avoid collisions by automatically applying the brakes if necessary.

8. PRE-SAFE Sound: This system emits a loud, brief noise inside the vehicle if a collision is imminent, in order to protect the ears of occupants from the loud noise of an impact.

These are the most useful driver assistance systems available on the 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV. These features provide added safety and convenience, making the GLC a great choice for anyone looking for a new vehicle.
