The eagerly-awaited new Volkswagen Polo will be rolling out of the factory early next year on Kumho tyres.
The Korean manufacturer already supplies its Kumho Ecowing ES01 KH27 tyre for the fifth generation of the hatchback and its continuing homologation is testament to the success it has enjoyed with VW over many years.
Feted as ‘bigger and better than ever’, the popular VW Polo will be enhanced by the Kumho Ecowing ES01 KH27, which combines economical and environmental benefits.
The tyre has been specifically developed to meet the needs of compact and medium-sized vehicles and helps to deliver fuel savings and a reduced carbon footprint through its new generation silica compound and tread design.
It is characterised by its notably low rolling resistance, low fuel consumption and equally low rate of wear that result, which have already been acknowledged in one of the highly-renowned ADAC tyre tests (ADAC Motorwelt 03/2016). The tyre was also a recipient of the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2013.
While the Kumho Ecowing ES01 KH27 is already available in a wide range of sizes from etyres, UK orders for the new Volkswagen Polo are not expected to begin until October, with deliveries commencing in January.
