Nokian Line SUV: Aramid fibres reduce the sidewall damage

The comfortable and sporty Nokian Line SUV is the correct choice for drivers who value safe driving but also want to enjoy the power of their SUVs on rough roads and in urban traffic alike.

The service life is improved by aramid fibres which the world's northernmost tyre manufacturer from Finland uses. The same material is also utilised in the aviation and military industries and reduces the sidewall damage that is common to SUV drivers. Several innovations that improve wet grip and maximise aquaplaning prevention make this versatile quality tyre one of the best products in its class.

The design of this new tyre,designed for varying European conditions, is based on the multiple test-winning Nokian Line. The Nokian Line SUV has very low rolling resistance, which also means very low fuel consumption.

The comprehensive size selection of the premium brand is aimed at the growing Central European SUV market, and it consists of a total of 32 tyres, with sizes from 15 to 19 inches. The speed ratings for the new products are T (190 km/h), H (210 km/h), and V (240 km/h), meaning that the Nokian Line SUV and its big brother, the Nokian zLine SUV, cover nearly all of the popular SUV models that are sold in Central Europe. The Nokian Line SUV is now available for purchase at tyre retailers.

Nokian zLine SUV: extreme durability, sporty handling and high safety

The sporty and precise Nokian zLine SUV is the result of nearly four years of careful development, and its unique durability and handling properties are the key features setting it apart from its predecessors.

“More durability, state-of-the-art handling, and the best possible safety for rain-slick roads vote for this premium tyre,” says Product Development Manager Juha Pirhonen from Nokian Tyres.“ Drivers who want to enjoy the power of their SUVs will value durability in addition to a precise and comfortable driving feel.”
