  • Mercedes-Benz MBUX is the best out there, but..

For starters, you can speak to the infotainment system, issuing commands like “Hey Mercedes, I’m feeling warm” and the car would then lower the air-conditioning temperature. All these can be done without the driver touching the air-conditioning controls. This is made possible by Linguatronic, Mercedes-Benz’s own ‘Siri’ voice command system.
