Video: Jan Kaul explains Mercedes-Benz A-Class' interior

Thu, 07 Jun 2012

Mercedes-Benz has released a video exploring the interior of its new A-Class featuring the designer who headed the project.

Jan Kaul explains in the video how the inspiration behind the interior was the subject of aviation, the same inspiration that produced the Concept A-Class show car.

"The theme running through the design of the A-Class was definitely ‘less is more,'" says Kaul. "This means we reduced everything to its essence to create a very clear architectural line that triggers associations with sports, ease and modernity."

The design team has left the interior open to personalization in terms of the materials used, such as artificial leather with contrasting seams, or the carbon-look IP insert as it looks to take on the Audi A3, BMW 1 Series and Volvo V40.
