Nexen winter tyre OE on new Audi A6

Audi has approved Nexen Tire’s Winguard Sport 2 tyre as an original equipment option on the new Audi A6.

The Winguard Sport 2 is the South Korean brand’s premium winter tyre designed for luxury saloons and sports cars. It will be fitted to the new A6 in size 225/60R17 99H.

Nexen says its Winguard Sport 2 offers “exceptional handling and braking capabilities” on icy roads. It also performs “outstandingly” in terms of handling and braking in both wet and dry conditions, it says.

The Winguard Sport 2 was rated as ‘recommendable’ in Auto Bild’s winter tyre test. It performed excellently across all categories, including grip, handling, noise and ride, and fuel efficiency on snowy and wet roads.

It was also recognised for its refined design by receiving a trophy at the German-based IF Design Awards.
