Excellent driving safety on both wet and dry roads

A new generation of summer passenger tyres, a wide range of sizes for 14- to 20-inch wheels.

We are presenting a new generation of high-speed summer passenger tyres MP 47 Hectorra 3 designed specifically for large-size (E-segment) and luxury (F-segment) passenger cars. 

A combination of state-of-the-art technologies and modern asymmetric non-directional tread pattern provides for excellent handling and safe braking on dry and wet road surfaces. The tyre also features improved mileage performance and driving comfort.

Designed for 14- to 20-inch wheels, MP47 Hectorra 3 will be available in a wide range of 50 sizes, in the speed categories “H” up to 210 km/h, “V” up to 240 km/h and “Y” up to 300 km/h, and in widths ranging from 185 mm up to 265 mm. 

The MP47 Hectorra 3 tyre is fitted with the “Summer TWI” (Summer Tread Wear Indicator) of 3 mm in height, located in the tread groove on several spots along the tyre’s circumference. When the summer tyre reaches the 3-mm limit, the indicator indicates the need to replace the existing tyre for a new summer tyre in order to preserve driving safety.

For middle-class and luxury vehicles and SUVs. Matador brand with long tradition, wide portfolio and reliable performance. High level of driving safety in the wet. Fits perfectly for example to Skoda Octavia, VW Passat and VW Tiguan.

Technical Highlights – Driving Safety

Feature

Four wide longitudinal grooves.

Effect

Better water draining due to enhanced water volume capacity in the grooves.

Benefit

Reduced risk of aquaplaning and thus increased driving safety on wet roads.

Technical Highlights – Braking and Handling

Feature

Stiff blocks and ribs

Effect

Improved transmission of traction and braking forces onto the road.

Direct steering response.

Benefit

Short braking distances on dry roads.

Good handling.

Technical Highlights – Wear Performance

Feature

Optimised tread pattern in terms of material distribution and stiffness variation between pattern elements.

Effect

Even pressure distribution in the contact patch.

Benefit

Even wear shape which results in an enhanced mileage performance.

Technical Highlights – Comfort

Feature

Closed outside shoulder.

Effect

Noise generated by pattern elements in the center of the contact patch is reduced.

Benefit

Increased driving comfort as well as reduced environmental pollution due to reduced noise generation from the tyre.

Technical Highlights – Additional Features

Summer Tread Wear Indicator (STWI)

Early recognition of when the tyre replacement is recommended for a sufficient wet performance.

Effect

Noise generated by pattern elements in the center of the contact patch is reduced.

Benefit

Supporting safe driving.

Sidewall Design

MP47 Hectorra 3 carries a modern design element on its sidewall – a car symbol that allows marking the tyre’s position on the vehicle. This feature will be appreciated by drivers and car service staff especially while performing seasonal change of tyres.

The European Tyre Label

Introduction
Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.

Benefits
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.

Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.

We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.

Symbols
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise

Take action
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.

Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

More information: http://ec.europa.eu/energy/efficiency/tyres/labelling_en.htm

Choose from our large online selection or ask us for advice. Our experts are happy to help you choose the appropriate tyres from our extensive range of products.

Fuel Efficiency

The classification in terms of fuel efficiency is divided into seven classes, from the A-class (the highest) to G-class (the lowest). A tyre in the A-class consumes 0.1 litres less at 100km than a tyre in the B-class. An essential component for fuel efficiency is the rolling resistance or rolling friction.

Rolling Resistance
Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.

Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.

Wet grip

It shows how efficient the vehicle can brake on wet roads. Wet grip is an important feature especially with summer tyres. Class A has the highest safety and the shortest braking distances. Class F has low security and the longest braking distance.

The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.

Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.

Tyre Noise

The symbol indicates the external rolling noise in decibels and as a 3 class sound wave symbol to clarify whether the tire can keep the recommended level. External rolling noise does not correspond to tyre noise inside the compartment.

A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.

Symbol
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.
