Mercedes-Benz debuted the Concept A Sedan at the Shanghai Auto Show, providing an outlook of the next generation of compact vehicles and a potential new body type. As you can see, Mercedes’ new look ditches complex creases in favor of clean new styling.
“Our Concept A Sedan shows that the time of creases is over,” says 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.”
While I was never a fan of the CLA’s styling (especially in the rear, talk about a huge fail), the Concept A Sedan absolutely nails it, looking like a baby Mercedes-AMG GT Concept. If this is the direction that Mercedes is headed, BMW and Audi should be shaking in their boots, as their designs are rather boring in comparison.
