The new GT Radial Savero SUV will be available in Europe this summer to meet demand in the growing SUV and CUV sectors. Target vehicles include the Nissan Qashqai, Dacia Duster, Ford Kuga, Kia Sportage, Opel Mokka, VW Tiguan and the new Renault Kadjar.
Key design features include four wide longitudinal grooves to provide improved wet performance through rapid drainage, geometrically optimized sipes with a combination of lateral sipes to further improve wet grip, and stiff circumferential ribs and shoulder blocks for optimal braking and driving stability.
Brian McDermott, general manager, Giti Tire UK, said, “The Savero SUV underwent independent benchmark tests at MIRA against both a leading premium and mid-market manufacturer, and the results across all seven categories are nothing short of exceptional.
“In wet performance, incorporating both handling and braking, the tire was best in class by a huge margin. Against the premium, more expensive product it was also better in dry braking, and is on a level par in comfort and dry handling. The other brand was well beaten in literally every area.”
