New summer tyre from Apollo
Apollo Tyres has launched the new summer tyre Apollo Aspire XP. It combines outstanding levels of on-road comfort with a high degree of safety, claims the company. Featuring a total line-up of 52 SKUs, the Aspire XP replaces Apollo’s range of Aspire 4G and Apterra HP tyres. The brand is also increasing its market coverage in the 17”, 18” and 19” segment by adding 20 new sizes in both the car and SUV segments.
“The new Aspire XP summer tyre ensures an outstanding driving experience for cars and SUV´s on both dry and wet roads. Safety and comfort were given an absolute priority during the research and development phase. An improved silica tread compound enhances handling on wet roads by 22% compared to the Aspire XP’s predecessors, while braking distance in wet road conditions has been improved by seven percent. The Aspire XP’s stiffer outer shoulder blocks and central lane reduce the braking distance by 4% and ensure a higher degree of steering response accuracy,” said a statement from Apollo Tyres.
The sales of the new tyre will start in March and will first be shown at the Geneva International Motor Show from March 8 to 18, 2018. The Apollo Aspire XP will be produced in Europe at the Apollo Vredestein plants in the Netherlands and Hungary
