Rear axle steering with large steering angle

At a glance

  • More manoeuvrability for your Mercedes – makes parking in one go and manoeuvring tight corners easier
  • Reduces the turning circle by up to 1 meter compared to standard rear axle steering
  • Steering angle and driving curve can be viewed at any time in the central display

Gives your Mercedes more manoeuvrability.

In multi-storey car parks, it can get very tight quickly when trying to park, or even when entering and exiting; every centimetre counts. The smaller the turning circle, the easier it is to manoeuvre.With the large steering angle, the rear axle steering plays even more to its strengths:The turning circle can thus be additionally reduced by up to 1 metre.


Your advantages at a glance.

The Rear axle steering with larger steering angle (max. 10° steering angle adjustment) improves the handling and manoeuvrability of your Mercedes. It is automatically active when parking or when exiting parking spaces, and when driving slowly.Compared to rear axle steering without a large steering angle, you require about 1 metre less space for the turning circle, and even up to 2 metres when compared to vehicles without rear axle steering. You can see which steering angle is currently set and which driving curve results from this in the central display.
