Mercedes won’t like me for pointing this out but the infotainment screen on the GLC is an absolute eyesore.
Somebody has gone to great effort to ensure the centre console is slick and smooth – somebody else decided to stick an ugly screen in the middle.
It’s like sitting in a beautiful lounge, with every seat facing an ugly black TV screen. What’s that all about?
I recently visited a hotel in Scotland with a large, gilt edged mirror in the bedroom. Turned out to be a TV when you found the on/off button. Brilliant.
It’s not just Mercedes, many cars have the carbuncle problem. Perhaps a unit that simply disappears into the top of the dash when not needed is the answer?
