Michelin Launches New Tires for the Porsche Cayenne

Tire manufacturer Michelin has just announced the availability of three new ranges of tires designed and homologated to fit the new Porsche Cayenne. According to the manufacturer, the new type of tires are designed for superior performance in terms of safety -enhancing grip - as well as fuel-efficiency and total mileage.

The new tires can be used both during summer and winter and are meant to enhance safety performance, reduce its environmental footprint and last longer.

All of the tires display the N marking on the sidewalls, certifying that they comply with Porsche’s very high quality standards. The three models are:
  • Michelin Latitude Tour HP
  • Michelin Latitude Sport
  • Michelin Latitude Alpin

The partnership between Michelin and Porsche dates back to 1960, but the alliance was further strengthened in 2002, when Michelin was awarded a contract as a Porsche Worldwide Cooperation Partner. The partnership covers several areas, extending from development to racing. Michelin also received a Best Supplier award from Porsche in 2004.

The new Porsche Cayenne was first introduced by the German carmaker right ahead of this year’s Geneva Auto Show in March. The car is available in four engine choices and is priced between 55,431 - 115,526 euros.

Standard features on the base Cayenne include 18-inch wheels, automatic headlight activation, 2-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, adjustable rear seat bench and audio system with touchscreen color display. The top of the range model comes with bi-xenon headlights, adaptive sports seats with memory package and automatically dimming outside and inside rear view mirrors.
