Auto News

Mercedes has revealed the interior of the next generation E Class in a blaze of publicity, which got us thinking is Mercedes trying to bury a bad news day? Nope, we checked various news sources and Mercedes is doing no wrong… for the time being. So the new E Class interior will feature the so-called “superscreen”, the Mercedes press release says it offers a “sporty” experience… please talk to the hand, not the face. Anyway, the “superscreen” or MBUX infotainment system originates from the firm’s EQ EV brand and now it finds a new home in the next generation E Class.

The so-called superscreen is meant to give the experience of a single touchscreen interface. In reality, the MBUX infotainment system is made up of three separate screens incorporated under a single glass panel to give the illusion of a single flat screen. Interestingly, a single processor is responsible for running all three screens.

The Entertainment package (MBUX Entertainment Plus) will be available for the new E-Class. It includes hardware, Mercedes me connect services and a data package from a third-party provider. Depending on the market, a communication module with 5G as the transmission technology is used. Good luck with getting a reliable 5G connection.

The integration of the “superscreen” raises the next-generation E-Class tech fest to new levels of modernity and futurism. What I don’t get is why are there an array of physical buttons under the screen? The lack of physical buttons is a perpetual bugbear of motoring review journalists. If you have driven a Tesla you do not miss physical buttons in the slightest.
