Illuminating Luxury: Ambient Lighting in Mercedes-Benz Models

Ambient lighting is a sought-after feature in modern luxury vehicles, and Mercedes-Benz has been incorporating this feature into their cars for the last few generations. Initially, ambient lighting offered a limited number of colors, but current Mercedes models allow you to choose from up to 64 colors. In this article, we will explore which Mercedes models come with ambient lighting as a standard feature, the cost of optional ambient lighting packages, and how to access and modify the ambient lighting settings in your Mercedes-Benz vehicle. Additionally, we will discuss aftermarket ambient lighting solutions to upgrade the interior, even for cars without ambient lighting from the factory.


Accessing Ambient Lighting on Your Mercedes-Benz

To access the ambient lighting menu in your Mercedes, navigate through your infotainment menu until you reach the comfort app. The comfort app enables you to adjust both the color and brightness of your ambient lighting. It's worth noting that you can set different brightness levels throughout your vehicle, allowing for personalized lighting preferences.

If your Mercedes is equipped with the MBUX feature, you can also select animation colors, which cycle through different pre-set shades based on your selection.
