MBUX Marks the Spot: Mercedes-Benz to Roll Out Its Next-Gen Infotainment System at CES ""

By | December 19, 2017

The new A-class interior will have a new infotainment system

Mercedes-Benz will debut its latest infotainment system at the CES electronics show in Las Vegas in January. The new infotainment system, to be named Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX), will begin appearing in Mercedes vehicles next year.

It won’t be limited to the most expensive Mercedes products, either. The three-pointed-star brand confirmed that the improved infotainment system will come standard on the forthcoming entry-level A-class sedan. While Mercedes is remaining tight-lipped about the details surrounding the new system, the company did release images of the new A-class interior showing the subcompact sedan will supplant the system’s usual control knob with a large touchpad. Currently, Mercedes limits infotainment inputs to a central control knob or an available touchpad that sits atop the standard control knob. We’ve heard that a touchscreen is a possibility as well.

Mercedes-Benz GLC F-CELL

While Mercedes would confirm only the new infotainment system’s arrival in the A-class, interior images of the hydrogen-powered GLC F-Cell compact crossover show a display screen and touchpad that are similar to those in the upcoming subcompact sedan. Needless to say, we anticipate that both the updated C-class and GLC-class will adopt the MBUX system, too, before the turn of the decade.

Watch for more details about the new system in the coming weeks.
