The 4th generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class is scheduled to be unwrapped on February 2nd in Amsterdam, prior to its public debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.
While the exterior design language adopts the “Sensual Purity” we saw in the latest CLS, the most significant changes are on the inside.
The new A-Class gets the new MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience. The “Widescreen Cockpit” as Mercedes likes to call it, will have two 10.25-inch screens, the right one being a touchscreen. The steering has touchpads on either side which control the respective screens, the left one controls the left and the right one controls the right screen.
The touchpad on the centre console can also be used to control the screen. A unique feature of the MBUX is its ability to learn thanks to artificial intelligence. The right screen will have navigation display with augmented reality plus intelligent voice control with natural speech recognition, which is launched by saying “Hey Mercedes”.
