2 Based on internal benchmark Turanza 6 vs. Turanza T005 (ref. size 205/55 R16).
*ENLITEN is a set of technologies providing best-in-class tyre performance with a step change towards sustainability compared with previous generations.
Improves chemical reaction control, balancing reinforcing mechanism and improving filler dispersion.
Features an interlocking mechanism for increasing
local pattern stiffness and reducing slippage versus predecessor.
Helps to improve the tyre’s traction on wet surfaces, channeling water away from underneath the tyre and minimising aquaplaning.
Thanks to low gauge body ply and tread plies, the Turanza 6 goes further with less fuel or energy due to reduced rolling resistance. The aerodynamic Rim Guard shape protects your tyre from sharp curvature changes and lessens drag forces.
