MBUX System Coming To The Rest Of The Mercedes Family

Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that the all-new MBUX infotainment system recently released in the latest-generation A-Class will soon be added to all of the firm’s models.

Created as a replacement to the firm’s COMAND system, MBUX is Linux based and incorporates a GPU from Nvidia and 8gb of RAM. It is feature rich and much easier to operate, complete with an interface that’s just two menu levels deep.

Speaking to Car Advice at the premiere of the new A-Class, head of research and car development at Mercedes-Benz, Ola Kaellenius, confirmed MBUX will be introduced to all the brand’s vehicles “within a couple of years.”

Beyond offering simplified touch interaction, MBUX adopts a natural language voice recognition system similar to Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. After speaking the phrase ‘Hey Mercedes’, users can control most vehicle and infotainment functions with their voice.

In the A-Class, MBUX will be offered with either two 7.0-inch screens, two 10.25-inch screens or a mixture of the two display sizes.

Larger models in the Mercedes-Benz family, such as the S-Class, are currently sold with two 12.3-inch displays. Head of user interaction at Mercedes-Benz, Georges Massing, confirmed that the MBUX hardware and processes can be installed into existing models.

    I’m curious if they’ll use the same chip/GPU for all the lineup, the previous generation A-Klasse was insanely slow compared to the bigger cars like C-Klasse, which was in turn slow compared to the CLS for example.
