More or less confirming what we had anticipated design-wise from recent spyshots of the future model, the Mercedes-Benz Passion Blog spilled the beans on two design sketches which have been leaked straight from Daimler AG.
The shot of the exterior sketch shows a very muscular design that should be about 90% close to what we'll see on the road. Take away the gigantic-looking rims engulfed in tires with tiny side walls, polish the body a bit around its edges and you have the Viano successor.

The prominent grille, along with the two A-Class/S-Class-like headlights swooping upwards at rakish angle, are in tune with the recent Mercedes-Benz design language, while the rear will probably remain more conservative in order to offer the best interior space possible.

Speaking of the interior, there is also a dashboard sketch, which we guess it's safe to say that it looks like it should belong to a much more upscale vehicle. According to the same report, the next generation of the Viano will try to close the gap to the R-Class, so that yacht-like dash should actually be happening on the high-end versions.

At least when it comes to Europe, there will be no more V6 version, with four-cylinder turbocharged and direct injected mills to be used across the range, wether gasoline or diesel-powered. No word if the 7 G-Tronic will give way to the new 9 G-Tronic, but what we do know for sure is that the car will be launched at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show.
