Corvex Tread Radius Technology provides even tread wear, highly flexible materials to maintain flexibility and an optimized foot shape, which the company said should result in a treadlife that lasts 20 percent longer than the GT.
Hankook said there is also up to a 5-percent cabin noise reduction compared to major competitors because of knurling technology, expanding shoulder grooves and optimized multi-pitch sequencing to reduce tread pattern noise.
Kinergy XP is available in 41 popular sizes ranging from 16- to 20-inch rim diameters, with additional sizes to be introduced at a later date, the company said.
Kinergy XP comes with a road hazard warranty, 30-day-free trial and a 75,000-mile limited treadwear warranty.
Hankook's Kinergy tires are built to meet the everyday needs of drivers with well-balanced performance and ride quality in all-season and all-weather environments and are designed for a wide range of vehicles from compacts and sedans to medium and large SUVs, the company said.
Kinergy XP joins other leading Kinergy tires such as the all-weather Kinergy 4S2, the premium touring all-season Kinergy PT for passenger and crossover vehicles, and the standard all-weather touring Kinergy ST.
