An SUV equipped for year-round use

Not one, not two, but three tyres! Goodyear has announced that its summer, winter and all-season tyres will be original equipment on the new Volkswagen Touareg. The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV, UltraGrip 8 Performance and Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-2 will be supplied as original equipment fitments for the German brand’s new SUV.

Volkswagen has approved the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV in 5 sizes for 18- to 21-inch rim diameters. The Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-2 and UltraGrip 8 Performance have also been approved by the German car manufacturer in 2 sizes for 18- and 19-inch rim diameters for the former and 18- and 20-inch rim diameters for the latter.

Manufacturer approval following a rigorous development process

Volkswagen’s top of the range SUV sets a high standard. Its bi-turbo, 3.0 litre V6 engine produces 286 hp allowing this 2-tonne SUV to reach a top speed of 250 km/h. Suffice to say that with such power, the tyres need to follow suit. Also, Volkswagen’s specifications for the Touareg require the highest possible level of comfort for its customers.

Nick Harley, Goodyear’s Managing Director OE Consumer EMEA was pleased with the result: “We are always focused on developing and delivering reliable tires to our partners”, he said. "With the OE tyres for the new Volkswagen Touareg we provided a wide range of fitments and solutions suitable for every season. We ensure comfort and performance in all road and weather conditions throughout the year and improving the driving experience of their customers.”
