Nokian Z G2 is the test winner of the summer tyre test 2012 in the German Volkswagen and Audi magazine “Gute Fahrt”


Top mark “very good”

The Nokian Z G2 is the test winner of the summer tyre test 2012 in the German Volkswagen and Audi magazine “Gute Fahrt“ (3/2012) with the top mark “very good“. The Finn also receives the “Gute Fahrt recommendation” and is praised for its good safety properties. The title of the results chart is “TEST RESULT>> Nokian wins the comparison”..

The magazine explains its “GUTE FAHRT very good” verdict with much praise: ”Nokian Z G2: For the first time, a Nokian tyre wins a GF tyre test […] and it completely deserves to, as the very balanced Finn manages to reach top marks not only for braking on wet surfaces, but also for rolling resistance.“

“The Finn is mostly neutral to drive and free of load change reactions. It masters handling, offers great stability and good grip on wet surfaces, and achieves the best braking scores. Only longitudinal aquaplaning could be better. Comfort is good and rolling noise remains low. And as the icing on the cake, it provides the lowest rolling resistance. The frontrunner Nokian has 22 per cent less rolling resistance than the worst ranked tyres, meaning that it can save up to half a litre of fuel per 100 km compared to them“.

The test included six current tyres from well-known brands of size 225/45 R 17 W that fits many compact cars like the VW Golf or Audi A3.
