Leading premium tyre manufacturer, Continental Tires, announced the launch of the new CrossContact H/T (H/T = Highway/Terrain) tyre in India. The tyre is developed with a particularly robust and durable design, tailored to the market’s needs of driving on- and off-road.
Crafted with precision at the ModiPuram plant, the Cross Contact H/T is tailor-made for Indian roads. Its versatile range caters to various rim sizes, from 15 inches to 18 inches in diameter, ensuring the perfect fit for all passenger vehicles. The select variants are now available in India, and the complete portfolio will be available to the market in the coming months.
"We are excited to introduce CrossContact H/T in India,” Samir Gupta, Managing Director of Continental Tires India, and Head of Central Region BA RE APAC commented, adding that “With the multipurpose pattern, low road noise, and improved tread life, the product greatly fulfils Indian drivers needs and ensures a safe and comfortable ride across various Indian terrains."
The new CrossContact H/T tyre is designed with multi-purpose tread pattern to handle the daily challenges of a passenger car, crossover and SUV tyre just as well as a product developed for use on asphalt. In addition, the tread, rubber compound and structure are designed to be robust enough to easily handle rides on mild off-road terrain. To provide additional grip when driving on loose stones and uneven tracks, the engineers have added the “grip teeth”, the small protrusions in the tread grooves, to the tire. These provide the necessary grip on non-asphalt tracks. Furthermore, the sensitive tyre shoulders have been made particularly strong to prevent damage from stones.
Low rolling noise means high ride comfort, and this is particularly true to the new CrossContact H/T tyre. Its special tread design reduces the noise level inside and outside the vehicle by around 10 percent compared with its predecessor. This makes rides more comfortable for occupants, especially on longer journeys.
