The Dutch tyre maker dominated the all-season sector when it was a much smaller market, and it returns to our test here for the first time since 2016.
The Quatrac Pro is designed for the performance end of the market, and our 17-inch tyre is the starting point for the range. That focus on high performance and tarmac grip with an asymmetric tread (the only one here) may have been behind its relatively poor showing.
On snow it finished some seven per cent behind the pace-setting Continental and needed three more metres to stop in the braking test. The lack of grip was evident behind the wheel, where it moved more easily than rivals and lacked balance, with the front pushing wide until it gripped, provoking the rear to slide. It was closer to the pace in the wet, where it scored a surprise win in the close circle test.
In braking it was around a metre behind the winning Hankook, but a match for most rivals. It was similar story on the handling track, where it felt secure, but a touch behind its rivals. A poor fuel economy result ensured it finished sixth.
The one-time go-to all-season tyre producer has been overtaken by rivals and needs to work on snow performance and fuel economy.
Not a very high-selling model – but customers who do buy are happy with the tyre, leaving reviews that highlight its wet grip and scoring it 4.8 out of five overall.
