Mercedes-Benz Reveals Concept A Sedan to Introduce New Design Era
In order to illustrate its future design plans, Mercedes-Benz recently unveiled the new Concept A Sedan at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. The Concept A Sedan includes a number of innovative design elements and features aimed at displaying a simplified version of the brand’s “sensual purity” styling.
“Our Concept A Sedan shows that the time of creases is over. 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.”
– Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Office, Daimler AG
Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan Design and Features
With coupe-like exterior styling, the Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan stands as a sleek compact sedan complete with short overhangs, large side windows, and a relatively vertical C-pillar. The Concept A Sedan’s exclusive 20-inch wheels are accentuated by the muscular wheel arch design, while the striking Panamericana front grille draws attention to the shark-like front. The unique headlamps feature an easily recognizable grid structure on the inside and are designed to glow in different colors depending on the light medium. In the back, the Concept A Sedan features a bobtail rear with dark chrome exhaust deflectors and a diffuser-look lower part trimmed in black with a chrome strip.
When Will the Concept A Sedan Be Available?
Although it was introduced as a concept, we can only hope Mercedes-Benz will make this premium coupe-like sedan available for us. Its size leads us to believe the sedan could be sold alongside the Mercedes-Benz CLA at some point in the near future. Stay tuned to the Mercedes-Benz of North Haven blog for additional details about the Concept A Sedan and its potential release to the public.
