Nokian Z SUV tops German 4x4 tyre test

Nokian has called the victory of one of its products in the German car magazine Auto Zeitung’s 2012 4×4 tyre test, which appeared in the 12/2012 addition of the publication, as an “outstanding result”. The Nokian Z SUV secured first place overall and was described as “very good on wet surfaces” with “safe handling characteristics, low rolling resistance.” Auto Zeitung also referred to the tyre as “good value.”

Six size 235/65 R 17 V tyres were put to the test. In wet testing, Auto Zeitung declared that the Nokian Z SUV’s performance “could hardly be better” and said “the Nokian is a wet-weather specialist. Top for brakes and steering. Very fast, very safe.” The ‘off-road’ test results were: “Good-natured handling characteristics and optimum traction in the mud.”

Further comments from the Auto Zeitung were that “the tread pattern from Finland owes its clear lead in the overall standings to its very low rolling resistance, acceptable off-road characteristics and excellent driving safety in all handling disciplines. However, the Nokian’s developmental edge is primarily noticeable on the wet handling track. With a very high level of grip and completely safe handling characteristics, it leaves everything else standing.”
