Citroën chooses Hankook for C3 Aircross

With sales of SUVs increasing all the time, Citroën has launched the C3 Aircross on the market, a compact SUV version that feels at home both in town as well as on light terrain. The French manufacturer has decided to include summer and all-weather tyres from Hankook in its list of approved original fitment tyres.

There is a choice of Hankook tyres – the Kinergy 4S (all-weather) in the sizes 195/60R16H, 205/60R16H and 215/50R17H as well as Ventus Prime³ in size 205/60R16H (summer).

The Citroën C3 Aircross stands for a young, lively design. Thanks to a high personalisation factor, it also impresses with a whole host of different customisation options. The choice of driving modes (including standard, sand, terrain, snow) guarantee best possible support when driving on and off tarmac roads in wide ranging weather conditions. Alongside very good driving characteristics, the development engineers’ requirement specification for the new Citroën compact SUV included low consumption and the related low pollutant emission.

The C3 Aircross offers a convincing combination of driving pleasure, economy and environmental efficiency. These characteristics include effective support in the form of particularly low rolling resistance of the Hankook tyres. In addition, Hankook development engineers found very good handling in wet and active dry handling particularly important. At the end of the day, the balanced performance of the Hankook tyres in terms of driving pleasure, safety and environment characteristics made the decisive difference for the car maker.
