Kumho Tire to supply Crugen tires to VW Atlas

Kumho Tire said Wednesday that it will supply its Crugen Premium KL33 tire to the 2018 version of Volkswagen’s full-size SUV Atlas.

Atlas is a seven-seater family SUV which has been developed by Volkswagen to target the North American market where big SUVs are gaining momentum.

The Crugen lineup is dedicated to urban SUVs. It is said to provide smooth and stable driving without with sacrificing performance functions such as on-road handling, braking and acceleration.

By using an upgraded silica rubber compound, Kumho Tire said the new KL33 is now more fuel efficient.

“The supply of Kumho Tire products as main tires to Volkswagen’s 2018 Atlas proves that the company has been approved for its quality and technology,” said an official from Kumho Tire in a statement Wednesday. “Kumho Tire will strive to develop and supply specialized tires to satisfy both clients and drivers on the back of the rising popularity of SUVs globally,” the official added.
