Nexen Tire ranks first in ACE Lenkrad summer tire test 2021


Nexen Tire, a leading global tire manufacturer, today announced that the N'FERA Sport has earned first place in the summer tire test conducted by German automotive magazine Auto Club Europa (ACE) Lenkrad, one of Germany’s largest and most trusted automotive clubs, conducting tire and automotive tests throughout the year. ACE Lenkrad has around 600,000 members and offers a variety of services such as the Driver Support Program and Road Assistance.


Using the Volkswagen Golf 8, experts tested nine different summer tires from manufacturers including those from Europe and America.

The tire, which was manufactured at Nexen Tire’s Europe plant, received outstanding reviews and performed well in a variety of other categories, earning the highest overall rating.


This first-place finish in ACE Lenkrad magazine’s tire test adds to a tally of accolades of strong ratings and results in tests organized by automotive associations and magazines including Germany’s ADAC and Auto Bild, which also rated the N'FERA Sport as “very recommendable.”
