This new model combines multifunctionality and a huge amount of space with equipment like the standard MBUX infotainment system and electric parking brake, the optional 17-inch light-alloy wheels, KEYLESS-GO or ambient lighting, or even the ARTICO man-made leather/MICROCUT seat upholstery. A range of standard safety equipment, including seven airbags and numerous driving assistance systems are also available.
The T-Class is equipped as standard with the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system. There are the self-teaching software, the high-resolution display, smartphone integration with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, the Bluetooth hands-free system and digital radio (DAB and DAB+). The intuitive operating concept via 7-inch touchscreen, Touch Control buttons on the steering wheel or – in conjunction with the optional Navigation Package – via the “Hey Mercedes” Voice Assistant is offered. The latter even understands colloquial speech. Users therefore no longer need to learn specific expressions.
The T-Class is already prepared ex works for the use of many digital services from Mercedes me connect. These include remote services such as Remote Retrieval of Vehicle Status or Remote Door Locking and Unlocking. These services allow users to conveniently check the most important information about their vehicles at any time from home or while out on the road. With Navigation with Live Traffic Information and car-to-X communication, customers drive with the latest real-time data. This allows them to avoid traffic congestion, thereby saving valuable time.
Destinations can also be entered as three-word addresses using the what3words system (w3w). what3words is the easiest way to specify a location. As part of this system, the world is divided into 3×3-metre squares with an unmistakable three-word address. This can be a help when searching for a destination.
An element here is emission-free mobility. As part of the ‘Ambition 2039’ initiative, the company is aiming to offer a CO2 neutral vehicle fleet by 2039 and to ensure that it will have no relevant effects on urban air quality. As early as the end of 2022, Mercedes-Benz is set to have battery-electric vehicles available in all segments in which the brand is represented. From 2025 onwards, all new vehicle architectures will be electric.
