Michelin Alpin A4
The new tire has been designed to fit a wide range of vehicles, from city cars and compacts to MPVs and sedans.
The Michelin Alpin A4 delivers unrivaled performance in terms of grip, tread life and energy efficiency in all winter driving conditions, through rain, ice or snow.
From a practical standpoint, the tire’s grip enables drivers to get moving 10% faster* than its predecessor and brake 5% shorter**, while it’s longer tread life means that the Michelin Alpin A4 allows motorists to drive farther – up to one winter longer – it can be driven 35% farther on average than its leading major-brand competitors*.
In addition to these two performance features, the new tire is also more fuel-efficient.
To achieve this performance balance, the new Alpin A4 integrates advanced technologies, some of them derived from winter tires developed for the severe winter road conditions of the world’s northernmost regions.
These “nordic” tires, like the Michelin X-Ice North introduced in 2009, enable drivers to take to the road even in the harshest winter driving conditions, on ice or snow – whether deep or freshly fallen, tightly packed or melting – and in temperatures ranging from 0° to -60° C.
This technology transfer benefits motorists driving on the new Alpin tires, enabling them to remain in control of their vehicle at all times and vastly enhancing their confidence at the wheel.
