Turkish Designer Imagines a Mercedes-Benz Sub-Compact Hatch to Sit Under the A-Class

It took Mercedes-Benz two generation of models, but third time was a charm when it came to the firm’s A-Class compact hatchback, which has been a wild success in Europe having secured more than 90,000 orders from September to mid-November, when Daimler last told us about the sales numbers. Inspired by the more aggressive styling and proportions of the A-Class Mk3, Turkish industrial design Uğur Göküş took it upon himself to visualize a smaller model positioned between the Smart series and the A-Class. Since “A” is the first letter of the alphabet, Göküş decided to change nomenclature and baptize his conceptual sub-compact hatch the VTR-Class. We imagine the three-door supermini was designed to be roughly the same length as a Ford Fiesta or a Renault Clio, with a wider body for a more menacing stance. If you head over the break, you will find a complete gallery of the Mercedes-Benz VTR study. Story References: Ugur Gokus
