In an age where technology is changing by the day, car manufacturers in particular find themselves in competition, with most high-end brands fighting to remain relevant in today’s tech-savvy market. And, at the luxury end of the market, the competition is most fierce, with many German vehicle makers working hard to create the next big car of our generation.
However, one car that has hit the press this week is the new Mercedes CLA Coupé; a car that has been dubbed ‘the intelligent luxury car’.
Stealing the show at the CES 2019, the luxury car impressed the event’s attendees, with its luxury appeal, smooth control and eye-catching design understandably grabbing the attention of all. However, it was the intelligent cockpit system, the MBUX, that got tounges wagging.
Said to be the best feature of the CLA, the system does a great deal more than your average. From recognising voice commands to understanding gestures, it really is unparalleled.
“Now we go to the next level with an intelligent interior assistance system for the compact class,” says Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG.
“The new edition of the CLA has been developed further in an intelligent way and is even more emotional and sportier than its predecessor. Coupled with new operating systems, it sets new benchmarks for the entire class.”
The stunning first series was also celebrated for its semi-autonomous capabilities, with the creators of this Mercedes understanding the need for high-tech integration and the world’s fascination with driverless technology.
According to sources, the car has been developed with a series of cameras and radars that monitor the conditions of the road, allowing the car to take on many of the responsibilities that getting from A to B entails.
