Hankook - summer tyres 2023 - market overview, tests, reviews
In this article, we have selected a few Hankook summer tyres based on recent tests to provide you with the most up-to-date information, ensuring you make an informed decision when purchasing your next set of tyres. We will be specifically looking at the performance of the Hankook Ventus Prime 4, Hankook Ventus S1 evo3 SUV K127A, Hankook Ventus S1 evo3 K127, and Hankook Ventus Prime2 K115 models.
The Hankook Ventus Prime 4 is a newer tyre model that replaced the previous generation, the Hankook Ventus Prime3 K125. In recent tests, this tyre performed well across various organisations such as Autoklub ČR, Autobild, Tyre Reviews, and ADAC. This tyre demonstrated good performance on both dry and wet surfaces, with acceptable weaknesses in aquaplaning, fuel efficiency, and environmental impact. Moreover, it received praise for its sporty handling, short braking distances, and low rolling resistance.
Another recently introduced tyre is the Hankook Ventus S1 evo3 SUV K127A. It has been tested by organisations like Autobild and Tyre Reviews, with impressive results in handling and traction on various surfaces, including loose gravel and muddy terrains. The Ventus S1 evo3 SUV K127A showcased dynamic performance in both dry and wet conditions, with short braking distances and a fair price point.
Similarly, the Hankook Ventus S1 evo3 K127 has drawn attention due to its high-quality performance and multiple tests across different sizes. In tests conducted by Autobild, it excelled in wet and dry handling, displaying agile steering, good fuel efficiency, and a fair price-performance ratio. However, this tyre showed limited safety reserves in curve aquaplaning, and comfort aspects were average in some situations.
Lastly, the Hankook Ventus Prime2 K115, while not a new tyre, has demonstrated consistent and reliable performance in multiple tests. While specific results from recent tests are not available for this tyre, its established track record makes it a noteworthy option to consider when looking for summer tyres.
Beyond these selected models, two additional Hankook tyres, the Hankook Ventus Prime 4 and Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 K117, are worth considering in your search for the perfect summer tyres. However, keep in mind that the availability of test results for these tyres may be limited.
Overall, it is essential to consider multiple factors when choosing summer tyres, including performance on wet and dry surfaces, fuel efficiency, and braking distances. With Hankook offering an array of high-quality tyre options, you can feel confident that you are making the right decision for your vehicle.
