Hankook quietly introduces Hankook Winter I*Cept Evo³
Without making a fuss about it, Hankook has quietly introduced a new winter tyre into the market. At least the “Winter I* Cept Evo³” is listed as a new entry on the German website of the Korean tyre manufacturer as well as leading tyre comparison sites, according to our colleagues at our German sister publication.
The obvious successor to the Winter I*Cept Evo², the new tyre is described as a cold-weather all-rounder that offers “winter perfection under all conditions”. Unlike its predecessor, the Winter I*Cept Evo³ (right) does not have an asymmetrical, but rather a directional tread design. Not only does it offer excellent control in the snow, but also improves its performance on wet and dry roads in cold weather, according to the German Hankook website.
Tyres & Accessories understands that the tyre is available in a range of 17 to 21-inch sizes, with wet grip ratings as high as B and the 245/50 R18 104V variant scoring CB for fuel consumption and wet grip respectively.
