A new BMW coupe

BMW has just presented many new products in its range. The German manufacturer has recently replaced the entire 3-Series family, moving to the F30 generation. A large family, since in addition to the standard 3-Series saloon, the propeller brand is also proposing Coupe and Cabriolet versions, that unlike their elders, answer to the name “4-Series”. It is precisely this new BMW 4-Series that will be fitted as original equipment with Hankook Ventus S1 EVO 2 tyres, taken from the Korean tyre manufacturer’s high performance range. The Ventus S1 EVO 2 has been chosen in the size 225/50 R17 W and will specifically equip the 4-Series Coupe model, that competes with the Mercedes C Class Coupe and the Audi A5 in the premium coupe market.

Another partnership

It is not the first time that Hankook and BMW have formed a partnership since the tyre manufacturer has already equipped many models produced by the Bavarian manufacturer. On the saloon car side, the 1-Series, 3-Series and 5-Series all have Hankook tyres and likewise for the large X5 SUV. Not forgetting the compact Mini brand, also part of the BMW Group. In short, many partnerships already exist between Hankook and BMW and there may be others in the future since BMW are currently holding a series of presentations for new models and have just, for example, unveiled the 2-Series Active Tourer MPV and the 4-Series Gran Coupe, a five-door version of the 4-Series coupe.
