The tyre models Ventus Prime² and Vantra LT are now being manufactured in original fitment versions for the Mercedes-Benz V-Class. Alongside good wet grip and precise handling, the development of the tyres, which are being manufactured at the company’s state-of-the-art production facility in Hungary, mainly focus on a high level of comfort combined with exceptional environmental properties such as low rolling resistance and a low rolling noise.

“The superior performance of both products documents our potential of being able to supply the market with Hankook state-of-the-art technology and top quality in all vehicle segments – passenger cars, SUVs, commercial vehicles or the popular light truck and minivan segment,” Ho-Youl Pae, Hankook’ COO for Europe said.

The 16-inch tyres used on the new minivans include Hankook tyres of the type Vantra LT in size 205/65 R 16 C 101/103 H.

The award-winning light truck tyre (independently tested by Auto Bild Reisemobil, April 2014, for example) was developed in view of the high demands and special requirements of regional and local passenger and commercial transport.
