Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder and Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara was launched recently on Apollo Apterra Cross tyres. Both the hybrid SUVs has Apollo Apterra Cross as their standard fitment in 17-inch tyre size. Apollo Tyres is an exclusive supplier to both the auto makers for these hybrids as of now.
Apollo Apterra Cross, which is the first dedicated range of tyres catering to the (C)SUV segment in India, is an outcome of an in-depth research of the exact usage patterns of (C)SUV owners/drivers. The Apollo Apterra Cross performs brilliantly under all conditions – from the quietest and most comfortable rides to the extra durability that ensures no compromises even when travelling through the bad patches of roads.
Satish Sharma, President, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (APMEA), Apollo Tyres Ltd, commenting on these OE associations, said “Both Toyota and Maruti Suzuki choosing Apollo Apterra Cross for their hybrid SUVs is a testimony to our efforts of upgrading our product technology. With several of our products coming as standard fitment in compact SUVs in India, we are clearly dominating this segment of passenger vehicles.”
The Apollo Apterra Cross with its aggressive design, is by far the best-looking tyre in the market for CSUVs. These tyres have twin steel belt, with JCP protection, for high puncture resistance, while the high abrasion resistant multi polymer blend used for the tread, ensures longer tyre life. The rounder contact patches of Apterra Cross tyres provide maximum ride comfort and ensures low noise generation. The block-based design, with connected shoulder blocks, ensures high level of road grip, while the balanced stiffness of tread blocks in lateral and longitudinal direction, provides best-in-class handling and braking performance.
