Birmingham, UK – Goodyear has announced the original equipment (OE) fitment of its fuel efficient SUV tire to the Nissan Qashqai.
The Japanese manufacturer joins Porsche, Aston Martin, Audi, to name just a few that fit Goodyear tires as standard.
The latest model of the Nissan Qashqai will be shod with EfficientGrip SUV tires in size 215/60 R17 96H. The Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) tire has been designed to combine the road grip qualities of the Goodyear EfficientGrip range, with an ability to deliver lower fuel consumption, lower CO2 emissions and a quieter ride.
“When designing the EfficientGrip SUV, the team at Goodyear recognised that a modern SUV tire must be a jack of all trades,” said Michelle Fisher, Goodyear’s brand manager. “Because a performance road tire must only grip and perform on the road, whereas off-road tires must also be able to generate traction in challenging conditions across a range of terrains – the tire must be able to offer excellent grip in wet and dry conditions as well as offer low rolling resistance to support fuel economy.”
“The Qashqai was recently named by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) as one of the top 10 best-selling cars of 2013. We at Goodyear are proud to have been chosen by Nissan to fit this highly popular crossover.”
