Mercedes-Benz to present new concept in Detroit, previews future design direction |

Mercedes-Benz models have been considered for a long time as a bit too conservative, at least in terms of design. This changed with recent models, like the new C and E Class, which have adopted bolder lines and styles.

But at the upcoming 2010 edition of the

Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS), the German company is preparing a brand new concept, which will further elaborate the direction in which its design will move. “We want to elevate our design towards art and if any company can do it Mercedes can,” said Gordon Wagener, the design boss of the German company.

Don’t go thinking it will preview any future models thought, as it will be a “pure design concept which is long and exaggerated.” That hasn’t stopped the rumors from coming in suspecting that it might have something to do with a new CLS, which might be revealed at the end of 2010.

Whatever the design concept will preview, I’m sure many Mercedes fans will eagerly await the beginning of January, when the Detroit Auto Show will open its doors.
