With the aforementioned technologies and features, MICHELIN Agilis 3 delivers 3 outstanding benefits: shorter wet braking distance, 5% or up to 1.9 meters shorter when new, and 11% or up to 3.8 meters shorter when worn, when compared to its major competitors (1); superior mileage performance, 25% more mileage compared to its previous generation, with less downtime caused by tire damage (2); 12% superior rolling resistance (3), plus 90ml/100km less fuel consumption and 228g/100km less CO2 emission, than average competitors.
Also mentioned during the virtual launch “As 97% of MICHELIN Agilis 3 are sourced within the region, it ensures effective on-demand delivery across Asia Pacific countries, as well as minimizes environmental impact and shipment costs. Moreover, the newly launched tire is specifically designed with reinforced casing to meet the challenges of the region’s usages and road conditions. With uncompromised performance plus all the benefits and advantages that come with it under the ‘Safer for Longer’ slogan, we are convinced that MICHELIN Agilis 3 will be warmly received and greatly appreciated in the Philippines.”
