MBUX: the era of connectivity

Mercedes-Benz’s user experience system, MBUX, brings a fresh look, feel and ingenuity to your vehicle’s multimedia functionality. MBUX unveils new boundaries in touch, voice and gesture control. This is partnered by technologies that learn user behaviour for unrivalled individualisation.

A car designed around you.

MBUX allows you to adapt every detail of your vehicle to exactly meet your driving style. And now this is made easier than ever before.

Control can be utilised via the high-definition touchscreen display, a touchpad on the centre console, Touch-Control buttons in the steering wheel and, in the latest editions, gesture control. In addition to an intuitive operating experience, less driver distraction is another advantage.

An MBUX cockpit can come in three configurations: you can choose between two 7-inch displays, two 10.25-inch displays, or one of each. There are also three display styles to choose from: Classic, Sport and Understated.

Hey Mercedes.

A stand out feature of MBUX is its intelligent voice control with natural speech recognition.

The wealth of features at your disposal inside your Mercedes-Benz – including temperature control, ambient lighting, and navigation – can all be controlled through voice activation. When you start a command with the key phrase “Hey Mercedes”, your Mercedes-Benz will respond to comments such as “I’m feeling cold” to turn up the heat or “I’m feeling hungry” to locate your nearest restaurant.

A phrase such as “Hey Mercedes, take me to the nearest motorway services”, would automatically open your vehicle map and your route would begin. Going a step further than conventional systems, MBUX utilises augmented reality. This offers a far more detailed, and therefore safe, navigation solution.

MBUX Augmented Reality

A revolution in the cockpit.

The MBUX system uses artificial intelligence that will learn your routine and preferences. It pre-sets your most used features in your “suggestions” shortcut but will also make suggestions based on your historic actions. It adapts to suit the user, remembering your frequent destinations, music preferences, cabin comfort settings and display preferences.

All these settings can also be saved into a profile, allowing you to easily transfer preferences between drivers who share use of a vehicle.

The future is coming.

If all that isn’t impressive enough, MBUX is a system that will develop and grow. Software updates will ensure the system continues to offer the most innovative features, both now and in the future.

If you are interested in trying out MBUX, or would like to find out more, contact your local dealership.

    • Hi Niel, we are glad you like it! Unfortunately, MBUX is currently only available in the new A-Class but it will be a staple in new model releases going forward. COMAND and Mercedes Me are available for those looking for greater connectivity in compatible Mercedes-Benz models. You may know about these features already, but if you would like to find out more let us know at info@mercedes-benzsouthwest.co.uk (specifying your local site) and we will ensure the correct team are in touch. Best wishes, Sarah

  • Will the new system be installed in the next version of the GLA and when is this model to be launched in 2019?

    • Hi Edward, Mercedes-Benz will be looking to release MBUX across the model range but unfortunately we cannot confirm a release date for the new GLA at this time. However, if you would like us to contact you, I can pass your comments to the team in Truro so they can be in touch when we have more information for you. I would need you to provide your consent to this by contacting us at info@mercedes-benzsouthwest.co.uk or via 01392 825045. Best wishes, Sarah
