Audi has picked the Nexen N’Fera AU7 ultra-high performance all-season tire to be original equipment on the fourth-generation Audi A3 in North America.
The Audi A3 will be fitted with Nexen N’Fera AU7 ultra-high performance all-season tires in size 225/45R17.
The tire provides “improved wet performance” by enhancing its tread compound grip with “3D nano grip technology,” say Nexen officials. “Because of the use of 3D sipes, it is also suitable for all seasons.”
"With more than 30 unique OE partnerships currently, Nexen Tire continues to add new and diverse OE applications to our supplier portfolio, reinforcing our goal of becoming a global top 10 tire manufacturer by 2025," says Brian YoonSeok Han, CEO of Nexen Tire America.
"Nexen currently provides OE tire solutions to many of Volkswagen Group's best-selling vehicles, like Jetta and now Audi's A3, and we look forward to providing additional tire solutions for the brand in the future."
