Apollo's Apterra Cross is standard fitment on Maruti Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder
Both the recently launched hybrid SUVs are shod with the 17-inch Apollo Apterra Cross tyre.
Apollo Tyres has announced that the recently launched Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara and Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder hybrid SUVs have rolled out shod on Apollo Apterra Cross tyres.
Both the hybrid SUVs have the Apollo Apterra Cross as their standard fitment in 17-inch tyre size. Apollo Tyres is an exclusive supplier to both the OEMs 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. According to the tyremaker, the “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.”
Commenting on these OE associations, Satish Sharma, President, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (APMEA), Apollo Tyres Ltd, 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 Apterra Cross has a 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, as per the company, 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.
