Commercially available since autumn 2019, Audi A1 Citycarver is factory-equipped with UHP Falken tires. In accordance with the signed contract, Sumitomo supplies Azenis FK510 in the dimension 205/55 R17 as the original equipment for the hatchbacks. These same tires are the original equipment used on the compact SUV Audi Q3.
«We are very pleased to have won this contract." comments Christian Stolting, Key Account Manager OE at Falken Tire Europe. «The decision to equip another premium model with our tires at factories says a great deal for the quality and the high scope of our tires.»
His words are more than justified, considering the success of the relatively inexpensive Falken Azenis FK510 in the comparative tire tests performed by European industry publications, this tire winning numerous prizes since the time it became available retail in 2016.
Out of the latest achievements of this model one must mention its reaching the final of the large Auto Bild test 2020, whose qualifying round involved 50 sets of summer tires.
