Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupé
Statement of the jury
The newly designed dashboard of the new Mercedes CLA Coupé is tidier than ever before. While the large, distinctive air jets on the sides and centre console structure the space, the large screen area extending over much of the dashboard provides an impressive calming effect for the interior. This allows the wing-shaped body of the instrument panel to extend from door to door without any formal interruption. The intelligent transfer of several operating functions to the steering wheel saves the driver the tedious and dangerous search for buttons and switches on the central console. The jury was also impressed by the design of the seats and the interior, in which the CLA Coupé has been given the form and quality of premium-class materials. The CLA Coupé shows how the premium theme is reflected throughout the entire series from the Stuttgart-based company.
