The 90th Motor Show in Geneva brings several new products: the revised E-Class, three AMG world premieres, new models from the family of compact hybrids, and the Marco Polo with Mercedes-Benz Advanced Control (MBAC).
Thrilling intelligence of the E-Class and AMG world premieres
The refresh of the E-Class means not only the implementation of several hybrid variants, one of which will be on display in Geneva. It also means a more dynamic design such as the sporty Avantgarde exterior, as well as the latest generation of Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Active Stop-and-Go Assist, Active Steering Assist and many more. The redesign is also evident in the interior – for example, in the completely redesigned steering wheel, available in various versions, and in the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) multimedia system: as standard, it includes two large 10.25-inch/26 cm screens arranged side by side for a sublime widescreen look. The increasing electrification of the drivetrain likewise represents an important step towards the future. The AMG variant of the E-Class will also come to Geneva, as will two new SUVs from Affalterbach.
Marco Polo – compact camper van, intelligently networked
The compact camper van from Mercedes-Benz is on show in Geneva with two intelligent “innovations”. The intuitive MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system, familiar from various passenger car models bearing the three-pointed star, will debut in the Marco Polo for spring 2020. The newly developed MBAC (Mercedes-Benz Advanced Control) interface module will be integrated simultaneously with the introduction of MBUX. MBAC allows central operation of a host of functions in the living area such as the lights or heating via the touch display in the cockpit or via smartphone app. As a result, the Marco Polo becomes a smart home on wheels.
