MPVs are family movers, and to keep your loved ones secure, you need a safe and sturdy tyre specially designed for MPVs like the Yokohama BluEarth-RV RV03.

27 Feb 2023

MPVs or multi-purpose vehicles might seem boring to the keen driver who has a need for speed and tight corners, but in the big picture, these cars fulfil a very critical role.

As family movers, MPVs ferry the most important people in our lives: our families, relatives and friends. And since tyres are the only things constantly connecting the car to the road, it makes sense to fit your MPV with the Yokohama BluEarth-RV RV03, a tyre specially designed to fit such cars.

MPV-specific needs

BluEarth-RV RV03 features a softer compound and thicker tread, which increases comfort and reduces noise
Family men and women are particular when it comes to tyres for their MPV. Safety aside, ride comfort and a long service life are equally important considerations, too.

These and other factors were what Yokohama had in mind when it developed the BlueEarth-RV RV03.

MPVs have boxy shapes and voluminous interiors, so any road noise tends to bounce around and reverberate inside. Over a long drive, this can be tiring for the driver and his passengers. The RV03, however, has a softer compound and thicker tread, enabling it to produce less tyre noise compared to its predecessor.

The wide ribs help enhance steering stability, while the diagonal cut grooves improve water dispersion
Indeed, the detectable noise from the driver's seat has decreased by nine percent, while the pattern noise is now two percent lower than before. Yokohama also reduced the audible noise from the second- and third-row seats by 15 and 13 percent respectively, providing both the driver and passengers increased interior comfort.

MPVs also have a higher centre of gravity, so they tend to wobble when cornering or going over undulating surfaces. The RV03, however, is also specially engineered to counter this with its stability.

With the BluEarth-RV RV03, the ride is not only cushier, but less tiring as well. This is particularly beneficial on road trips, so everyone can arrive at the destination feeling fresher.

A safe and sublime drive

The four wide channels enable the RV03 to quickly displace water, thereby helping drivers maintain grip in wet conditions
Passenger comfort is important, but not as important as safety. In line with this, Yokohama gave the BluEarth-RV RV03 a high-rigidity shoulder and two wide ribs, which enhance steering stability, giving the driver more confidence.

Rainy weather is a constant in a tropical climate like ours. To deal with slippery roads, the RV03 has four straight grooves to evacuate water quickly to maintain grip.

Further enhancing the tyre's wet performance are the diagonal cut grooves and improved silica dispersion in the compound. This, together with the larger contact patch, also increases traction.

High-rigidity shoulder gives the driver better steering feel and more confidence
The larger contact patch offers another advantage as well. It helps prevent uneven tyre wear and improved wear resistance by 20 percent, compared to its predecessor. With regular tyre rotation, you can look forward to a longer service life and reduced running costs.

Delivering a quieter and more comfortable ride, more grip in wet conditions, plus a longer service life, the RV03 is the tyre for MPV owners who wish to keep their loved ones safe on every journey.

The Yokohama BluEarth-RV RV03 is available in sizes ranging from 15 inches to 20 inches.
