Perodua Ativa Sports Bridgestone Turanza T005A Tyres
These 17-inch Bridgestone tyres feature on the higher two variants of the Perodua Ativa.
Bridgestone has recently announced that a set of its Turanza T005A will be be available as standard on the 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels of the H and AV variants of the new Perodua Ativa. The premium touring tyre within the company’s lineup, the 205/60 rubber featured here is touted to provide ‘a smooth journey with first class comfort, superior quietness and assured safety’ on this new Malaysian compact crossover.
Initially launched by Bridgestone in 2018 as a successor to its Turanza GR100 in the ‘premium comfort’ class of tyres features various technologies to back up the company’s various claims. Chief among which is its Nano Pro-Tech compound that is specifically engineered to ‘strengthen the bond between silica and polymer to increase the contact area’, which in turn equates to better wet weather performance and enhanced safety.
Additionally, the Turanza T005A features rounded sipe edges to prevent tyre deformation and aid in reducing braking distance and improving dry weather performance. On the opposite end of things meanwhile, a reinforced sidewall, an optimised contact shape and a variable pitch on the tyre thread block ensures a quieter and smoother riding journey when out on the road.
Now just to put all of this technical jargon into one easy to digest nugget of information, the Turanza T005A was in fact initially designed for D-segment vehicles. So if it is good enough for the likes of the Toyota Vellfire, Volkswagen Passat and even Mercedes C-Class, it would be more than good enough for the compact Perodua crossover.
As for those who want to experience this premium touring tyre on their own car, a wide selection of sizes for the Turanza T005A available at Bridgestone Select (B-Select) and Bridgestone Pro Shops nationwide. And just to wrap things up with the Ativa, the base spec X variant makes do with a set of 205/65 Goodyear Assurance Triplemax 2 tyres on its smaller 16-inch alloy wheels.
