The TÜV SÜD Benchmark Test Results Confirm Nokian’s Position in Terms of Safety and Performance

Nokian Tyres, the world’s northernmost tyre manufacturer, commissioned TÜV SÜD to carry out independent tests for the all-season tyre Nokian Tyres Seasonproof 1 as well as the summer tyres Nokian Tyres Powerproof 1 and Nokian Tyres Wetproof 1. All three models underwent rigorous and detailed comparative tests at TÜV SÜD Automotive‘s largest independent competence center for wheel and tyre technology in Europe and successfully passed the benchmark test.

The Nokian Tyres Seasonproof 1 all-season tyre sets new standards in terms of versatility and performance. Thanks to numerous technical innovations, it guarantees maximum safety, excellent wet grip, and low rolling resistance in all weather conditions. Internal tests have shown that wear resistance has been improved significantly compared to the previous model.

The TÜV SÜD test results for Seasonproof 1 confirm the outstanding performance of the Nokian Tyres Seasonproof 1. Overall, the tyre performed significantly better than the average of its tested competitor models and offered the most balanced performance in comparison. It demonstrates excellent performance in longitudinal and lateral aquaplaning and offers a high degree of safety on snow. In the categories braking on snow and handling in snow, it emerged as the best tyre among the competitor models.

The Nokian Tyres Powerproof 1 summer tyre offers maximum stability, precise handling, and exceptional grip on wet and dry surfaces. It was developed for use on motorways and guarantees safe driving even at high speeds with short braking distances and excellent aquaplaning properties.

The TÜV SÜD tests for Powerproof 1 show excellent driving behavior in the wet. The Powerproof 1 not only emerges as the best tyre in the longitudinal and lateral aquaplaning test, but also achieves the best performance when braking on wet roads. In comparison with competitor models, it also performs well when braking on dry roads. The tyre also scored well in the wet handling test, where it performed better than the average of its competitors.

The Nokian Tyres Wetproof 1 summer tyre offers maximum safety and a comfortable driving experience and is ideal for rainy days and demanding road conditions. Its low rolling resistance increases fuel efficiency and saves energy. With outstanding wet grip and first-class driving characteristics, Nokian Tyres Wetproof 1 ensures safe driving even on wet roads.

The TÜV SÜD test results for Wetproof 1 show that the tire outperforms the average of its competitors in terms of braking and handling characteristics on wet roads. The first-class driving behavior on wet roads is particularly evident in aquaplaning, where it is the safest tire among the competitor models in the longitudinal and lateral tests.

“The convincing results of our tyre models in the independent TÜV SÜD Benchmark Test confirm that we are well positioned with our premium tyres in terms of safety and performance,“ says Martin Drazik, Product Manager of Nokian Tyres Central Europe.

“We are proud to offer tires that meet the highest quality standards and provide our customers with a safe driving experience,” he added.

All test tyres were purchased by TÜV SÜD on the regular market. The tyres for the individual tests were selected randomly.
