Mercedes-Benz V-Class Wins Major Design Award
The new Mercedes-Benz V-Class received the Red Dot Award for Product Design in what is one of the world's largest product competitions for design quality.
The so-called Red Dot Award aims to reward products with a high standard of design. The award is granted each year by a panel made up of international experts. This year 1816 manufacturers, designers and architects from 53 countries submitted their products and projects in an effort to win the coveted Red Dot. The 40-man jury made its decisions on the winners for 2014 as part of an evaluation process lasting several days.
The Mercedes-Benz V-Class MPV impressed the jury primarily with its elegance and sportiness. The independent expert jury comprising members from different countries was impressed by the design quality of the V-Class. "It’s elegant and at the same time sporty design makes the V-Class a modern MPV offering plenty of space", said the jury in its reasoning statement in the Red Dot Design Yearbook 2014/2015.
In addition to the V-Class, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class as well as the Mercedes-Benz GLA models received prizes for high design quality.
