8% shorter braking distance on wet roadsA,B
3% shorter braking on dry roadsB,C
18% lower rolling resistance (compared to Goodyear EfficientGrip predecessor)B,D
A-rated wet grip
Rated A1 for wet grip performance, the highest rating awarded under EU regulations.
Shorter braking distances for driving confidence
ActiveBraking Technology increases contact between the tire and the road surface for shorter braking distances – up to two metres (8%) shorter on wet roads2 and 3% shorter in the dry3.
Improved wet braking and lower rolling resistance
WearControl Technology ensures an optimal balance between wet grip and low rolling resistance for the life of the tire.
Lower fuel consumption
We use FuelSaving Technology to create a new base compound that reduces the tire's energy dissipation. Rolling resistance is reduced by 18%4 meaning improved fuel efficiency and lower driving costs for you.
1* Grade A wet grip rating awarded for majority of tire sizes under Regulation (EC) No 1222/2009, but grading may vary for certain sizes.
2 Compared to the average braking distance of four leading competitors (braking on high μ very wet surface at 80–20 km/h). Tested by TÜV SÜD Automotive in September 2012 by order of Goodyear Dunlop. Tire size: 205/55 R16 91V; test car: VW Golf; test locations: Mireval (FR), Papenburg (D) and Garching (D); report no. 76249743
3 Compared to the average braking distance of four leading competitors (braking on dry from 100–0 km/h)
4 Compared to its predecessor, Goodyear EfficientGrip.
