Kumho tyres to be OE on latest Volkswagen Polo
The new Volkswagen Polo small hatchback is leaving the factory equipped with Kumho tyres, the Korean company announced. Already a supplier for the fifth-generation Polo, Kumho is now supplying its Ecowing ES01 KH27 in size 185/65 R15 88H for the sixth-generation Volkswagen model that is being manufactured in Pamplona, Spain.
The tyre has been specially developed to meet the needs of compact and medium-sized vehicles and is characterized by low rolling resistance. It offers low fuel consumption and an equally low wear rate, Kumho said.
The 2018 supermini Volkswagen Polo is built on the car maker’s smallest platform that is now longer and wider than the previous version. The updated vehicle has additional features and new engine options. The Polo was selected as the 2016 Auto Express supermini of the year. The 2017 model ranked first in the Auto Express category test against the Renault Clio and Skoda Fabia for its superior performance and driving dynamics, higher-quality cabin and impressive levels of connectivity as standard.
