Refined Performance for your
Refined Sport Utility Vehicle

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : :


Many of today’s highly refined sport utility vehicles look and drive more like luxury performance cars than a traditional SUV. BMW X-series, Cadillac SRX, Mercedes M-Class, Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg are just a few of the vehicles setting new standards for the group. Traditional passenger car or conventional light truck tires cannot deliver the blend of handling performance, ride quality and styling that the vehicle manufacturer designed their SUV around, or that its owner would be happy with. As an alternative, the Street/Sport Truck tire category offers a better fit.

How well do these tires really handle? And what about ride and noise comfort for that everyday commute to work or school? To get a better understanding of these tires and the potential trade offs in handling versus ride comfort, The Tire Rack team conducted a Real World Road Ride and limited Performance Track drive to evaluate three performance-oriented tires from the Street Sport Truck category. We compared the Continental CrossContact UHP with the Michelin 4X4 Diamaris, both of which are summertime only tires, and Pirelli’s Scorpion Zero, an all-season tire that is also an Original Equipment fitment on the Touareg’s sister platform, the Porsche Cayenne.
