In this test we look at the improvements made in dry grip, including dry braking which was already very impressive, the step forward in wet grip and aquaplaning resistance, the huge improvement in rolling resistance meaning lower fuel consumption / better MPG for your car, and the serious step forward Michelin have made in the snow performance of the new tire.
Watch the video to see how the new Michelin CrossClimate 2 is better than the Michelin CrossClimate+ in nearly every way!
The Michelin CrossClimate 2 is a worthy upgrade on the original CrossClimate+. It improves the outgoing tires grip in nearly all conditions, it makes a significant step forward in the snow, and has significantly lower rolling resistance.
All in all, the CrossClimate 2 is a very impressive all season tire.

The Michelin CrossClimate+ has been testing well since 2017, rarely finishing out of the top five, even in 2020. The replacement Michelin CrossClimate 2 was launched in September 2021, and improves on the CrossClimate plus in the dry, wet, snow and rolling resistance.
