Inside, a futuristic cabin showcases the company’s idea of ​​the ultimate in-car experience. This means that there is Huge screen make a dashIt covers the dials behind the steering wheel and center console, and there is a display in front of the passenger seat.

Moreover, there All kinds of light blue ambient lighting and neat cutouts for storage, like the space under the center console for a small bag. Then there are the seats, which look like perfectly fitting monsters and are all finished in crisp blue and white fabric.

Then there’s the car’s exterior, which is full of nods to the current CLA and EQXX Concept Car. All body panels are smooth and elegant, which undoubtedly helps with aerodynamics, except for the smooth line along the middle of the car that echoes the current CLA’s shape.
