Mercedes unveils new MBUX infotainment at CES 2018

When you think of the Consumer Electronics Show, you may picture wild concept cars whose technologies we won't see for quite some time.

On the features front, the new-gen Mercedes-Benz GLS will also come with some semi-autonomous systems and functions derived from the E-Class and S-Class.

There is a lot of anticipation for the revamped version of Mercedes' infotainment system. In addition to a touchpad, the driver can simply tap the screens (not an option on most recent Mercedes systems), use touchpads on the steering wheel, or use voice control.
