On the eve of Auto China 2018, Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-Maybach have presented exclusive world premieres. Unveiled for the first time was the A-Class L Sedan, made in China for China. Providing the backdrop for the premiere of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury was the Mercedes-Maybach vernissage at the ENJOY Art Museum. The show car and an exclusive furniture collection based on its design were inspired by influences from the Chinese market and embody the traditional values of the luxury brand.
With the current design language characterised by clear shapes and sensual surfaces, the high safety levels thanks to the latest driver assistance systems with S-Class functions and the MBUX infotainment system – Mercedes-Benz User Experience, the Chinese A-Class L Sedan has all the virtues of the new compact class family from Mercedes-Benz. One highlight is the intelligent MBUX voice control with natural speech comprehension, which masters several Chinese regional dialects, including Sichuan and Cantonese.
“This car is made specifically for the Chinese market. The long-wheelbase A-Class Sedan is unparalleled in the compact segment, bringing together outstanding comfort with a fresh and dynamic design and top-notch technology. It really takes safety and driver assistance to a new level. In fact, some features were even taken over from its big brother, the S-Class,” says Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “We know that many people in China adore all things mobile, all things connected and all things digital. And we’l l bring all of this together in our new Mercedes-Benz user experience, MBUX.”
