MBUX is one of the feature-rich infotainment systems on the market that provides an elegant, personalized and connected experience through Cerence solutions for Mercedes-Benz drivers and passengers worldwide.

It thus aims to creates an emotional connection between the vehicle, driver and passengers. At the same time updates “over the air” are possible. It also heralds a new era at Mercedes me Connectivity.
Its further strengths include the high-resolution Widescreen Cockpit with touchscreen operation, navigation display with augmented reality technology plus intelligent voice control with natural speech recognition, which is activated with the keyword “Hey Mercedes”. MBUX first became available in 2018 in the A-Class before rolling out to additional car lines including the B-Class, GLE and GLC.
Cerence, which recently spun out of Nuance Communications as an independent automotive AI company, is known for its expertise in sophisticated AI, natural language understanding, voice biometrics, gesture and gaze technology and augmented reality. The company is involved in creating unique, moving experiences for the automotive world. It is an innovation partner to the world’s leading automakers, and powers AI in nearly 300 million cars on the road globally across more than 70 languages for nearly every major automaker in the world.
