After sharing the first interior photos of the upcoming 2018 A-Class, Mercedes-Benz will give educate us on the car’s newly developed infotainment system on January 9, 2018, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The new infotainment system is named “Mercedes-Benz User Experience”, or MBUX for short, and promises “to ensure a pioneering in-car experience” by being “introduced as standard equipment in the next compact car generation”.
From the images shared with the next-gen A-Class’ interior, we already know that base grades will get two 7-inch displays, whereas better-equipped models will come with two 10.25-inch or one 7-inch and one 10.25-inch screens. These replace the traditional instrument panel on one side, and control the infotainment, air-conditioning, and other functions on the other.
As the Germans have already announced, the new MBUX will be found on the brand’s upcoming compact models, which include not only the new A-Class hatch, B-Class MPV, CLA four-door coupe, CLA Shooting Brake, and GLA, but also the A-Class sedan and yet another crossover, probably dubbed GLB.
The automaker will also demonstrate their automated and autonomous driving technology with test drives in Las Vegas.
