Ventilation inputs with a turbine design light up with 64 colors, a function of ambient lighting that the new A Class inherits from the E Class, S Class and the new CLS. One of the most important innovations of the new compact of the German brand is the debut of the new interface Mercedes-Benz User Experience (known by the abbreviation MBUX) and that really means a revolution in relation to the handling, counting on a new system of vocal commands capable to recognize simple and natural language. Thanks to artificial intelligence technology, the system is able to learn normal expressions from the driver and passengers to provide more accurate information, a system that allows controlling the entire vehicle and the applications of the Comand Online platform.

2019 – MERCEDES-BENZ C CLASS SEDAN
The Mercedes-Benz booth at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show promises to be one of the most interesting at the event. There will be the new Mercedes-Benz C Class, but it will not be the only major news.

It will remain available with several lines of equipment that not only affect your exterior image, but also your equipment and interior decoration.

One of the most significant exterior novelties has to do with headlamps, which can now incorporate Multibeam LED technology with a large light capacity, as each headlight is composed of 84 independent LEDs that can be controlled individually and accurately. In the technological part were added new driving assistants that give the model a semi-autonomous driving ability under certain circumstances. Inside there are changes in the instrument panel and electronic systems. The Mercedes-Benz C Class 2019 can equip a 12.3-inch digital screen that makes up the dashboard and a multimedia system with screen up to 10.25 inches.
