There have also been plenty of tech updates made to the car. Key among these is Mercedes’ MBUX infotainment system which features a large 12.3-inch touchscreen that can be operated much like a smartphone or tablet. The infotainment system also includes natural speak voice activation and the ability to recognize certain gestures. A new steering wheel with touch-sensitive surfaces also enables a new degree of control for the driver. A second 12.3-inch screen serves as the digital instrument cluster.
Mercedes also offers its latest electronic driver-assist features. One of the new, more advanced items is an enhancement for the adaptive cruise control. The system can use live traffic updates to recognize and respond to a build up of traffic on a highway well before the driver is even aware of the situation. When it detects traffic ahead and the driver doesn’t take any actions, the system will automatically slow the vehicle to 62 mph as a precaution.
