Mercedes Concept A-Class.

Written by Thomas Baekdal | Wednesday, April 27, 2011

According to Mercedes, the new A-Class concept car is "the first heartbeat of a new generation whose expressive design stands for concentrated dynamism." I am not really sure what "concentrated dynamism" is. It sounds like an energy drink. But the new A-Class is a looker.

One major characteristic of the new design idiom at Mercedes-Benz is the expressive interplay between lines and surfaces " which the designers refer to as a "clean" Concept. Thanks to concave and convex surfaces with the resulting light modulation, this creates a unique sculpture-like presence. The Concept A'Class emphatically continues this theme of defined edges and interacting surfaces, which Mercedes-Benz first showed in the F 800 Style.

The interior of the Concept A-Class, which is flooded with light from the large panoramic roof, likewise appears to be from another planet. Many of the unusual features were inspired by aircraft engineering, at the same time reflecting ideas from the "Mercedes-Benz Aesthetics No. 2" interior sculpture.
