SUV sales in the country have increased significantly in recent years. According to reports, SUV and crossover sales in India will account for approximately 38 per cent of total passenger vehicle sales in 2021, up from just eight per cent in 2001.

The tyres provide extra traction on off-road surfaces and ensure grip on loose surfaces like gravel.

According to Samir Gupta, MD Continental India, “The CrossContact AX6 tyres are designed keeping in mind the various conditions found both on-road and off-road. The tyres are highly suitable for markets like India, which feature various geographies, road conditions, and growing SUV demand. They are a perfect fit for any driver who spends most of their time on the road but requires more traction when heading off the beaten track.” He further added, “Markets across the globe have widely appreciated the CrossContact AX6 tyres, and we hope to see similar results in India.” The CrossContact AX6 tyres are available for the latest range of SUVs in India.

Innovation Behind the Tyres

One of the essential factors while off-roading is the traction and grip provided by the tyres. The open tread pattern of the CrossContact AX6 tyres provides maximized edges and contact area, helping in additional off-road traction. The tyres also include traction grooves with gripping teeth that prevent the loose surface from sliding through the tread grooves. In addition, the Silica Tread Compound, the polymer structure that grips on the road give good traction and braking on wet and slippery roads. The sipped pattern on the tyres further aid the grip of the tires. On the other hand, the large tread blocks, and tough tread compound, aid in minimizing the stone retention and resisting cutting and chipping of tyres, which leads to excellent durability and robustness. The innovative design features the noise blockers in the shoulder of the tyre to block sound waves and unnecessary noise generated by the tyres and provide a smooth and quieter ride.
