The GitiSynergy E1 has been selected for the SEAT Arona in size 205/60R16 92H. This is the third Giti Tire contract to provide original equipment to vehicles based on Volkswagen’s MQB A0 small car platform.

A newcomer to the steadily growing small SUV segment, the Arona is produced in SEAT’s plant in Martorell, Spain, alongside the Ibiza, and track tests were undertaken at the company’s MIRA facility in the UK, at Idiada in Spain, and at Papenburg in Germany.

The GitiSynergy E1 was designed and manufactured by Giti Tire’s Research & Development Centre in Hannover, Germany. It includes a high-performance Eco tread compound and a special contour design for low rolling resistance, as well as enhanced driving and braking characteristics on both wet and dry roads.

As with all Giti brand passenger car and SUV tires for Europe – including the GitiSport S1, GitiSport S1 SUV, GitiPremium H1 and GitiWinter W1 – the GitiSynergy E1 carries the ‘German Engineering’ insignia to highlight its exclusive European development.

The GitiSynergy E1 has previously been approved for OE fitment to the VW Polo and SEAT Ibiza.
