What is Mercedes-Benz Active Parking Assist?

Those of us who have visited Corona Del Mar in Orange County during peak tourist season are probably familiar with the hassle of finding and attempting to squeeze into a parking spot. Active Parking Assist searches for suitable parallel or perpendicular parking spaces to either side as you drive by. Choose a space to pull or back into, and it can expertly shift, steer and brake for you. When it’s time to leave, it can also steer you back out.

In any low-speed maneuver, sensors in the front and rear bumpers help detect nearby objects within their field of view while audible signals and illuminated displays in the cabin help you navigate tight spaces with confidence.
