We’ve already seen the next generation interior of the A Class, but the automaker is again revisiting it in time for the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on the occasion of its premiere for the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience infotainment system.
It’s going to be featured for the first time inside the new A Class, and the MBUX wants to deliver a “revolution in the cockpit,” with the Linux-based debuting in front of the tech-savvy worldwide audience of the ongoing 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Naturally, after the A Class is introduced, of which a camouflaged example fiddle around Sin City, the MBUX will be used across the entire compact range of the automaker.
Now with the details. The standard entry-level configuration of the A Class will bundle a seven-inch instrument cluster and a central touchscreen of the same size, the middle setup will bring the larger 10.25-inch touchscreen, while the top trim level will have both screens of the latter size. All versions feature a six-core CPU and nVidia graphics chips. The MBUX will also include 8 GB of RAM, and it will even include an optional head-up display with a brightness of up to 12,000 cd/m².
The MBUX will be seen in the A Class hatchback and sedan, the CLA, the GLA and upcoming GLB, and even the next generation B Class. The system will include voice and gesture controls, while the MBUX will have hard-disc navigation based on the HERE map data and even up to 64 colors for the LED ambient lighting. Tech features will also include Near Field Communication (NFC), as well as USB Type C for pairing with the latest smartphones. The A Class is set to premiere this March at the Geneva Motor Show.
