Mercedes-Benz User Experience to preview all-new in-car entertainment system
The future of the infotainment system is looking bright for Mercedes-Benz, especially for their new line of compact models that will be seeing the light of day soon. In fact, the company is set to reveal the next-generation infotainment system at next year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Dubbed the 'Mercedes-Benz User Experience' (MBUX), the event will highlight the world premiere of a new infotainment system. According to the company, it will come with new technology based on artificial intelligence, along with an easy-to-use operating system.
The new system will come as standard equipment on the company's new line of next-generation compact cars. This will include the A-Class, B-Class, CLA and all-new GLA. Also likely to benefit from this is the upcoming A-Class Sedan which will be available only in the Chinese market.
A few weeks ago, Mercedes-Benz released interior photos of the fourth-generation A-Class ahead of its scheduled debut. Based on the photos provided, the next-generation hatchback will be available with several screen options which will serve as the car's instrunment panel, multi-info display and infotainment system. Entry-level models will come with two 7-inch screens while higher-end variants will come with the bigger 10.25-inch monitors. However, mid-range models can opt for a combination of the two, one with the smaller screen and the other having the bigger display.
The 2018 Consumer Electronics Show will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 10 until January 12.
