Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV Provides Unlimited Driving Pleasure in Total Safety
Michelin recently unveiled the Michelin Pilot 4 SUV for high performance, premium Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV). The Pilot Sport 4 SUV is developed for ‘excellent longevity, remarkable braking performance, dynamic handling and a comfortable driving experience’.
Managing Director of Michelin Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Brunei, Pascal Nouvellon, said: “The Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV completes our well-established Pilot Sport family with the latest motor sport technology and intelligent enhancements to provide unlimited driving pleasure in total safety. The new tyre features an improved tread pattern and a new tyre compound for better grip and wet braking – staying true to the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV tagline, ‘Out there, you are always in control’.”
Developed with a new compound that incorporates innovative functional elastomers and thin silica, Michelin said the Pilot Sport 4 SUV was placed first in a wet handling test held against other premium tyre brands. It took up to 5.06 seconds faster to complete the 1,050 metres track than its competitors. The new tyre was also placed first in dry braking with a recorded distance of up to 2.7 metres shorter than competitors. On wet roads, it braked up to 4.9 metres shorter when new and up to 8.5 metres shorter when worn, against competitors.
The Pilot Sport 4 SUV sports a new asymmetrical groove design that rigidifies the tread pattern and provides ‘excellent grip’ during dynamic cornering. A hybrid belt made of aramid and nylon also provides dynamic steering responsiveness and driving precision.
Offering ‘excellent longevity’ of up to 13,000 kilometres more than other premium tyre brands, Michelin said the Pilot Sport 4 SUV had an intelligent design that incorporated rigid tread blocks and a high-density double casing ply for increased robustness against road shock damages – giving the driver confidence and safety on the road.
“We gave the Pilot Sport 4 SUV a premium touch design of 91 per cent elegant black finishing to equip the SUV with a sporty appeal. The new tyre was also optimised for superior riding comfort and minimal noise to provide our customers with an enhanced driving pleasure like no other,” said Pascal.
The new Pilot Sport 4 SUV is available at Tyreplus and all Michelin authorised dealers across the nation in 39 sizes, for rims of 17- to 23-inch diameters. Rim protectors are also available for all dimensions. For more information, visit www.michelin.com.my.
