Does this work like Ford's self park assist?

Thanks, Joe; that's a good one. I wondered about the lack of picture in the CLA version at the start of this thread. Now I see that the car didn't have the MM package.

You a fan of auto park vracer? I don't think I could trust it if I had it on my car. Thoughts?

For $500 I am. I used to be as good as anyone when I did it three times day; now it is more like three times a week - and my neck doesn't bend as well as it used to. FWIW, I think the key to happily keeping my present car for 5+ years was adding every bell to every whistle on the car.

Does this system only do parallel parking?
I think I saw a MB commercial parking in a perpendicular parking spot. I can seem to find it now.

I'd agree with that. My wife keeps her van because it has everything possible (except for the vacuum, which now comes with Honda vans)

Good thinking :)

From everything I've read it's parallel parking only, and I've only ever seen in commercials the cars do parallel parking. Probably too many variables when trying to squeeze between two cars and not hit everything in sight. :)

Why would you, or anyone else, need help with parking perpendicularly?

Interesting parking system. I trust it but the only thing is the time it stops to do recalculating. It would bother me a bit how long it takes to complete parking.

Besides parallel parking I don't think there would be a good use for it. Of course the more advanced driver wouldn't need this assistance but for the novices it would be beneficial.

If the 2014 CLA class has the same parktronic system that the 2014 E Class does then yes it will assist in perpendicular parking spots. If I remember correctly the manual said it can only judge if the spot is wide enough.

Really? Enough people need help with that to justify developing that feature?
