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.
