DETROIT (AP) - Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a concept version of a six-seat Vision Grand Sports Tourer that the company says is about a year from production for the American market.

The automaker said Monday it created the luxury concept vehicle to accommodate family use - recreation, travel and work - without sacrificing style and technological prowess.

The model shows "the attractiveness and versatility of a new concept for a roomy, comfortable and high-performance family car," said Juergen Hubbert, head of the Mercedes Car Group and a member of DaimlerChrysler AG's board.
