A next generation of compact sedan vehicles is coming.
Mercedes is bringing a new body type of its popular sedan that will provide a more rigorous implementation of the design idiom of “sensual purity”.
The new body type is inspired by the “Aesthetics A” sculpture shown in January.
Watch a brief teaser video of the new Mercedes Sedan below:
The car is being showcased at the Auto Shanghai.
Mercedes says the “Aesthetics A” sculpture already demonstrated that the upcoming compact class generation marks the dawn of an even more rigorous implementation of the design idiom of “sensual purity”.
“Our Concept A Sedan shows, that the time of creases is over”, say Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Daimler AG. “With its perfect proportions and a sensual treatment of surfaces with reduced lines, it is the next milestone of Sensual Purity and has the potential to introduce a new design era.”
The current compact vehicle generation is crucially contributing to Mercedes‑Benz’s most successful and rejuvenated appearance ever to make 2016 the sixth year of records in succession. More than two million compact vehicles have been sold around the globe since 2012.
The Mercedes-Maybach family has just launched its first SUV with an electric fabric top.
The new SUV called the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet will will celebrate its world premiere and sales release at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017.
The market launch of the special series of the open-top four-seater will be limited to 99 units and will start in the autumn.
This extrovert G‑Class thus represents a unique combination of luxurious chauffeur saloon and off-roader.
