Questions and Answers for the Michelin CrossClimate 2 SUV

2023-01-22 - Hi, when might you be able to test the Michelin Cross Climate 2 SUV? I have seen the CC2 tests for non-SUV vehicles, do you have them for the SUV tire? Thanks,

The Michelin CrossClimate 2 and CrossClimate 2 SUV are the same tire, just different size and load ratings (and sidewall print) so you can be assured any test of the CC2 will apply to the CC2 SUV :)

Top 3 Michelin CrossClimate 2 SUV Reviews

Given 79% while driving a Ford Escape (/45 R17) on mostly town for 350 spirited miles
I purchased a set of Cross Climate 2 tires on my dealers recommendation. I drive a 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid. The first thing I noticed was my gas mileage dropped 10% around town. This vehicle gets 42.3 miles per gallon around town. The calculation is done by the vehicle and is in your face constantly.. Immediately after mounting the Cross Climate 2 my mileage dropped to 38.5 around town. I took a trip of 285 miles on a highspeed highway. My mileage which normally would be about 38.0 mpg dropped to 31.5. (Hybrids routinely get better mileage round town than they do on high speed trips due to higher percentage of electric power usage at lower speeds.) The bottom line is my fuel economy dropped 10% to 20%. I returned to my dealer. He scoffed at my mileage claims but agreed to swap the tires for a set of Primacy Tour A/S tires. i drove out of the dealership and zeroed out my trip odometer, almost immediately my fuel usage calculations began to improve. After 75 miles of local driving my MPG is back to 43.5 MPG. the Cross Climate 2 may be a great handling tire, but it will cost you dearly in fuel usage.

Given 80% while driving a Volvo XC40 Recharge P8 AWD (255/40 R20) on a combination of roads for 100 spirited miles
Initial impressions are that these are *very* soft tires. The sidewall is easily moved with a fingertip at 40PSI, as is the tread. I've a set of Pirelli Scorpion Winter tires which are more firm to the touch despite significantly more siping in the tread blocks at the same 15 celcius ambient temperature. Maybe the design of the siping in the CrossClimate's compensates for this soft compound. I can't help but think that it will lead to early wear on the tire tread, especially on a high-torque EV. Having said that, the ride is more comfortable than it was on the 20" Pirelli P Zero Elect's that came on the XC40 Recharge, which is a pleasent bonus on this car. Will add more when the wet and cold weather comes upon us. I'd buy this tire again, but not for an EV.

Given 90% while driving a Volkswagen (235/50 R19) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
Fitted to VW Tiguan 2.0L SEL DSG 4motion. In summer use, handles predictably with decent levels of grip. Not quite as sharp handling as my previous tires which were a summer tire. However, the tire compensated by feeling a bit softer, improving ride comfort. Noise levels are reasonably good. Maybe a slight low pitched noise but, certainly not intrusive. Having bought these tires for safer winter performance without the faff of having to change tires, I'm pleased to report that they've just cooed commendably well with the 10cm snowfall we've just had. Good traction, evidenced by coping with slopes which left other cars stranded and spinning there wheels. Maybe the rating should include a score for smugness. In summary, not a cheap tire but the performance justifies the price. Good, comfort orientated summer performance, Excellent in snow conditions. Would buy again.
