Competitors

The Sava Eskimo HP2 is a winter tire that exhibits a combination of strong and weak performances across various conditions, making it a subject of interest for those looking for a multifaceted winter tire option. Notably adept at handling winter conditions, the tire boasts secure handling and promising performance on snow and ice. This capability is highlighted by its superior results in braking and acceleration on winter roads, as well as precise steering on a snowy handling course. The performance on ice is also commendable, with the tire delivering above-average braking results.


However, the tire does not maintain this high level of performance across all conditions. Specifically, it struggles on wet surfaces, exhibiting weaknesses that impact its overall evaluation. These deficiencies are evident in its satisfactory or even just adequate ratings in wet handling, where early understeer and later oversteer tendencies are observed, alongside a low reserve in the limit range. Despite securing good grades in aquaplaning resistance, its braking distances and handling on wet roads have room for improvement.


Additionally, the tire faces criticisms for its performance on dry roads, particularly concerning its precision and driver feedback. Drivers might find the need for frequent corrections due to inadequate steering response and vehicle behavior that does not consistently follow a steady trajectory. The tire's behavior in dynamic maneuvers or lane changes suggests a propensity for oversteering, and its braking distances on dry surfaces are notably below average.


From an environmental and economic standpoint, the Sava Eskimo HP2 excels. It garners praise for its high projected mileage and low wear rate, both considered superior within the test field. Environmental efficiency is another area of strength, with the tire achieving the best rating for fuel consumption owing to its low weight and minimal rolling resistance. This combination of factors contributes to a favorable environmental footprint and potential cost savings over the tire's lifespan.


In summary, the Sava Eskimo HP2 presents a nuanced choice for consumers. Its exemplary performance in winter conditions, combined with remarkable environmental efficiency and longevity, positions it as a strong candidate for those prioritizing these aspects. However, potential buyers should weigh these strengths against the tire's limitations in wet and dry handling precision to make an informed decision based on their specific driving needs and preferences.

Sava Eskimo HP2 in tyre tests

All tyre tests where Sava Eskimo HP2 was featured:
ADAC Winter tyre test 2023 225/45 R17
satisfactory
Ranked #14 of 16
Finishing 14th out of 16 competitors, the Sava eskimo hp2 secured a final rating of 'Satisfactory'. The tyre demonstrated secure driving characteristics on wintry roads, showcasing reliable performance during braking and acceleration on snow, even turning in the third-best result among the participants in winter conditions. It impressed with significantly above-average results on snowy handling courses and during ice braking tests. Additionally, its projected lifespan and wear levels are positively noted, a testament to its low abrasion and very low weight, which contributed to it having the lowest fuel consumption among the tested tyres, earning it top marks in efficiency. However, the tyre showed weaknesses in precision on dry roads and handling limits, with the test vehicle prone to oversteer during dynamic evasive maneuvers or lane changes, receiving only a satisfactory assessment in this aspect. Its braking distance on dry roads was notably below average. On wet roads, the tyre struggled, securing only satisfactory or even just adequate ratings in braking measurements and handling. It was prone to understeering early in the handling course and showed a lack of precision. In summary, while the eskimo hp2 excels in winter conditions and offers environmental benefits through its efficiency, low weight, and low fuel consumption, it faces challenges in providing precise feedback and handling, especially on dry and wet surfaces.
