Latest technologies for the DS7 Crossback

Goodyear continues to equip SUVs. After the Audi e-tron, the American tyre manufacturer has signed a new deal with PSA’s DS Automobiles brand. More specifically, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV summer tyre has been chosen for the DS7 Crossback in the size 235/45 R20 100V XL, and has been specially optimised for this new vehicle. According to Goodyear, its tyre underlines the premium positioning of the DS while keeping the force specific to SUVs.

With this in mind, Goodyear engineers have worked tirelessly to develop a special version of the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV. This has been achieved with the tyre manufacturer’s SUV-optimised Construction technology to create a new tread design. The different layers of textiles and rubber inside the tyre improve handling stability at high speed, while optimising steering precision when cornering and reducing tread wear. The “UHP Cool Cushion Layer” technology has also been used in the tyre to improve handling while reducing rolling resistance say Goodyear. Another new technology is available on the SUV version of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 Active Braking Technology. This innovation ensures that the tyre’s contact surface with the road increases when braking, which improves grip and shortens braking distances in dry and wet road conditions.

We are proud to be a key partner for the highly anticipated DS7 Crossback,” said Nick Harley, Managing Director OE Consumer for Goodyear EMEA.The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV is the latest member of the Eagle F1 family and just like the DS7 Crossback it’s designed to enhance the performance of SUV, allowing the drivers to fully experience the benefits of an SUV, while enjoying the features of a UHP tyre”.
