Goodyear launches EfficientGrip 2 SUV

Goodyear has launched its new summer SUV tyre, the EfficientGrip 2 SUV. As the successor to the EfficientGrip SUV, the EfficientGrip 2 SUV offers exceptional mileage and strong handling on wet and dry roads, according to Goodyear.

This new tyre will be have 52 new SKUs covering sizes from 16-22 inches, which will be launched throughout the next 12 months.

“SUVs represent a growing share of the European vehicle fleet. We are proud to bring this new product to market that will take SUV drivers forward while giving them the performance they are looking for,” said Piotr Nagalski, director marketing Goodyear Europe.

“With additional mileage and a number of SKUs with high load indices, the EfficientGrip 2 SUV tires are ideally suited not only for the requirements of SUVs, but also for electric vehicles.”

The EfficientGrip 2 SUV offers a 25 per cent improvement in mileage compared to its predecessor, thanks to Goodyear Mileage Plus technology, which offers high elasticity and flexibility of the profile. This leads to fewer microcracks in rough road conditions in a wide temperature range.

This new tyre boasts shorter braking on wet roads, thanks to a larger number of longer grip edges in combination with a lower compound stiffness, which improves the water drainage.

Goodyear says the EfficientGrip 2 SUV has shorter braking on dry roads thanks to more contact area and larger ribs in the middle of the tread.
