Yokohama has announced the launch of its new GEOLANDER X-CV, its next-level tire specifically created for the growing luxury SUV/crossover market.
In a release by the company, Yokohama says that it has taken into cognizance that there hasn’t been a lot of choices for replacement tires for luxury SUVs and crossovers. Released in 23 W-speed-rated sizes, the company’s new GEOLANDER X-CV offers coverage for almost all 18- to 20-inch luxury SUV/crossover fitments.
“The X-CV is definitely luxury meets performance,” says Bob Abram, Yokohama’s Senior Manager of Product Planning. “It’s specifically engineered for luxury SUVs and crossovers, and is built for long-lasting, powerful all-season traction and braking.”
Yokohama has listed the following benefits of the GEOLANDAR X-CV:
- The tire’s asymmetric tread pattern, combined with 2D and 3D sipes for reliable, short-stopping distance in wet and wintery conditions, assists in powerful braking
- The tire’s wide, flat construction profile increases its treadlife. It provides a rectangular contact patch that facilitates even stress distribution for a long, even wear.
- The new GEOLANDER X-CV’s reinforced shoulder and two centre ribs help in precise vehicle handling by improving stability and dry handling.
- Yokohama’s new offering facilitates a hush-quiet ride with its staggered tread pattern in a five-block sequence. This reduces pattern and road noise.
