2019 A-Class says “Hey Mercedes” to a new age of car tech

Mercedes-Benz may have actually done the seemingly-impossible, and given the new 2019 A-Class an infotainment system worth using. The new compact car debuts MBUX, or Mercedes-Benz User Experience, the next generation of the automaker’s smart dashboard.

USB Type-C is included on even the most basic infotainment package, for example, and the natural voice recognition system uses both local and cloud-based processing simultaneously. That means, even if the car doesn’t have an internet connection, it can still understand and respond to spoken instructions.
