What’s new for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

2020 C-Class Vs. 2019 C-Class

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class keeps getting fancier. We loved it last year, and this year’s array of models bring even more improvements. Read on to fill your mind with what’s new on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

For 2020, the C-350e EQ Power hybrid is back, and it has more power. Most of last year’s Premium package contents are now standard, along with a digital instrument panel and 18-inch wheels.

Those are the biggest changes to the 2020 C-Class. It’s part of the fourth generation of the line that was introduced for 2015. Drivers will still find plenty to love, including a meticulously crafted interior, cutting edge features and technology, sharp styling, and the choice of several powerful engine options.

For 2019, some sizable changes came to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Front and rear exterior styling was refreshed, and a new turbocharged standard engine was provided. The infotainment system was fitted with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and driver assistance features were enhanced throughout. Buyers will be happy to find that all these lovely improvements are carried over for the 2020 incarnations of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

When will the next generation C-Class be released?

Rumor has it that a revamped Mercedes-Benz C-Class will appear at the Paris Motor Show occurring on September 29th, 2020. Information could be revealed online a few weeks earlier. It’s also whispered that the lineup will include a new All-Terrain variant serving as an SUV-inspired machine; think of something that would rival the Audi A4 Allroad.

A man puts two fingers on his MBUX touch screen in the cabin of his Mercedes-Benz vehicle.

What does MBUX stand for?

MBUX Acronym Meaning

For the most part, infotainment systems in vehicles tend to be… underwhelming. Clunky touchscreens, pixelated graphics and low framerates relegate even the better set-ups to providing a merely “adequate” user experience at best. Sub-par infotainment tech is so common that drivers have come to see it as the norm.

Luckily, Mercedes-Benz has changed all that with its MBUX system. Touted by the automaker as a “revolution in the cockpit,” MBUX is a smart, exciting multimedia system with an in-car voice activated assistant. But there’s one nagging question many find themselves asking: what exactly does MBUX stand for?

MBUX stands for “Mercedes-Benz User Experience.” While the “X” isn’t literally the first letter of “experience,” we’re willing to forgive this smudging of the facts because MBUX is so much easier and more fun to say than MBUE. It also makes us think of some weird kind of Mercedes-Benz “fun cash.”

What makes MBUX so good?

The excellent quality of the MBUX system is due in part to the fact that its powered by an NVIDIA Parker 128 Chipset. This processor was developed by NVIDIA specifically to power the next generation of autonomous vehicles.

Thanks to such powerful GPU technology, the MBUX system is able to display high-framerate visuals on high-resolution screens. Its two dash-mounted displays are smooth and highly responsive, while the touch function responds as well as iPhone.

The system also learns over time, with the ability to adapt to a user’s preferences. Using its artificial intelligence, capabilities of the system can continue to grow. To some, this may seem eerie, but it can’t be denied that it’s awfully convenient!

Mercedes-Benz MBUX Voice Control

Voice control on the MBUX system is activated by saying “Hey Mercedes” or pressing a button on the steering wheel. Doing so allows the user to interact with the MBUX system and vehicle using natural language. For example, saying “I’m cold,” will prompt the vehicle to slightly increase the heat. Other possibilities with voice control include modifying lighting, playing songs, and more.
