We’ve taken on the task of showing what MBUX could have been. With our redesign, we’ve imagined how Mercedes might have maximized impact and experience without compromising style or alienating existing customers.
While the MBUX interactions are improved, the visual design is old-fashioned and outdated, diminishing the improvements and ultimately making the system as a whole feel a step behind the competition.
Mercedes’ MBUX system has gotten rid of its classic rotary controller in favor of a touchpad. Surprisingly, it makes the system much better than it was.
