Michelin previews CrossClimate+ at Paris Motor Show
The CrossClimate+ is designed to minimise performance degradation throughout the life of the tyre. Snow acceleration tests conducted at Michelin’s request by TestWorld in July 2016 on dimension 205/55R16 fitted to a VW Golf 7, compared with two premium All Season competitors.

Hot on the heels of the news that Michelin’s year-round summer tyre (the CrossClimate) has beaten all-season tyres at their own game in a magazine tyre test (see “Summer tyre wins all-season test”, which reports on the ADAC test originally published on 22 September), Michelin previewed the next generation of its category-defying product – the CrossClimate+ at the Paris Motor Show at the start of October. In addition to the original product’s unique summer-tyre-with-a-three-peaks-mountain-snowflake qualification, the latest version is said to improve winter performance and consistent whole tread life performance. This latter point picks up on what appears to be an increasingly important theme to Michelin – that tyres should performs consistently well through right up to the 1.6mm legal tread depth limit (see “Michelin reaffirms opposition to 3mm replacement” for more on this).
