Anadol A2 SL Sedan 4-door

The Anadol A2 model was developed as a 4-door sedan based on the 2-door A1 model. Like the A1 model, it was overhauled in 1972. Thereupon, the A2 model, which was updated again in 1976, was officially named A2 SL, and thus new body types began to be officially named.

A2 Mk I

A2 Mk I is Turkey’s first 4-door glass fiber body passenger car. The prototype of the vehicle was developed in 1969, and mass production started in 1971. The vehicle, which is a copy of the A1 Mk I in terms of its appearance and technical equipment, was recognized with its one-piece front seat. Mass production of the A2 Mk I started in January 1971, and 1,995 units were produced until April 1972.

A2 Mk II

Like the A1 model, the design of the vehicle was renewed for the 1971 Mediterranean Games held in Izmir. Like the Mk I model, the A2 Mk II model is the same as the A1 Mk II model in terms of technical equipment and appearance. This model is the first Turkish car to be crash tested. Although this 4-door, 5-seater sedan model was designed as a family car, it was very successful commercially. It is the best-selling Anadol model. 18,271 units were produced in approximately four years, from April 1972, when production started, to January 1976.


After the Anadol A2 model sold well, the design was updated in 1976, keeping the model name. No major changes have been made in terms of specifications; The engine used in the previous models of the A2 continued to be used in the A2 SL. Changes were made to the exterior design of the vehicle. The most obvious of these changes are that the windshield has a more oval structure and the rear stop-signal lamps have been transformed into a single red lamp. The A2 SL model was not as successful as the A2 Mk II. 15,401 units of the A2 SL were produced in the five-year period between January 1976 and January 1981.
