What is the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX)?

Mercedes-Benz User Experience

As one of the top automakers in the world, Mercedes-Benz continues to integrate the top tech tools and gadgets into their car models to offer convenience and enhance the driver's experience while on the road. One of their latest creations is the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX), which is touted as a revolution in the cockpit. If you want to learn how you can benefit from the feature, there are a few facts to understand.

Infotainment System

The MBUX is an infotainment system that has the unique ability to learn as both the driver and passengers use it. It adapts to suit the user to ensure that it functions and is customized based on their preferences and how they prefer to use the system. Drivers can expect to have an emotional connection to the system due to its ability to suit the needs of the user better than other infotainment systems that are available in similar vehicles in the industry. It can even updated over the air when it needs to refresh and have a boost in its capabilities.

Easy to Use

One of the perks of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience is that it's extremely easy to use. The user-friendly system is built with a wide color touchscreen that has a high resolution and is within reach of the driver's seat. It features navigation display to get you to where you need to be quickly and without delays. The device is also built with reality technology plus intelligent voice control and can detect your voice as you're on the go. Drivers won't have to worry about taking their eyes off of the road and can avoid distractions, which can increase the level of safety that is provided. The voice recognition is activated each time by saying, "Hey, Mercedes" or by pushing a button on the steering wheel.


The MBUX is expected to release in the spring of 2018 in the new Mercedes A-Class. One of the main perks of using the comprehensive touch operation concept is that it allows drivers and passengers to direct the system by using the touchpad on the center console. Touch-Control buttons are also available on the steering wheel and allow you to keep your hands on the wheel while still making commands. Less driver distraction means having more confidence behind the wheel and avoid making minor or major mistakes.

Increasing Information Density

The MBUX has information density with three different levels, which includes the Home screen, the Base screen, and the Submenu while adjusting the settings or pulling up information in the car. It obeys virtually every command and understands full sentences. Three control options are also available, which increases ease of use of the device and allows both the driver and passenger to perform specific commands in the vehicle for ease of use. It can also connect with the Mercedes Me App, which will send you a reminder on your phone or tablet when it's time to leave the house. The app will prevent you from being late to work because it takes the current traffic conditions into account to ensure that you don't have any delays. All of the settings can also be saved on a profile, making it easy for each driver of the vehicle to have a customized device that is specific to their preferences.
