Mercedes-Benz said on Wednesday it has teamed up with Google on navigation and will offer "super computer-like performance"
Automakers new and old are racing to match software-powered features pioneered by Tesla, which allow for vehicle performance, battery range and self-driving capabilities to be updated from a distance.
Mercedes said the collaboration with Google would allow it to offer traffic information and automatic rerouting in its cars.
Drivers will also be able to watch YouTube on the cars' entertainment system when the car is parked or in Level 3 autonomous driving mode, which allows a driver to take their eyes off the wheel on certain roads as long as they can resume control if needed.
