The European car market continues to evolve towards SUVs, with the transition to EV and hybrid powertrains accelerating the growth.

The Sava Intensa SUV 2 fulfills the needs of consumers in the summer SUV budget segment.  The tire features an innovative SUV compound technology providing larger vehicles reliable performance on wet surfaces. 

Stiffened outside shoulder blocks offer enhanced strength and stiffness, helping to ensure better corner grip, stability, and precision control on dry roads. Meanwhile, a low rolling resistance tread compound rating makes it robust, helping to save money and maximize vehicle range.

Sonia Leneveu, Director Marketing Consumer Europe, Goodyear: “As Sava prepares to grow its share of the market in the budget segment, the launch of these new sizes puts the brand in a strategically strong position to capitalize on the growth of the SUV market. The Sava Intensa SUV 2 is an excellent choice for price sensitive drivers looking for a reliable high-performing SUV tire.”
