Top 3 Hankook Kinergy Eco 2 Reviews

Given 87% while driving a Volvo V40 1.9D SE (195/60 R15) on mostly country roads for 2,000 spirited miles
Went for these on my Volvo after being extremly satisfied with Ventus tyre from the same manufacturer.
Had them for about 2000 miles so far and the tyres are excelllent. Driven them in every kind of condition (from sunny hot day to very bad rainy weather and even some frost). Was worried due to some claiming bad grip in wet weather but quite the opposite I found them very good in the wet. Very happy so far, the price is great and would definitely recommend them.

Given 71% while driving a Dacia Logan (185/65 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
I've had these tyres for almost two years and I can say for sure I've made a good choice. In around 8000 miles, done in different summer conditions (extreme hot weather and pouring rain), these tyres didn't let me down.
Dry grip is good and I allows for fast cornering without worries. What really impressed me was wet grip and braking, which are a plus for these tyres. Dry braking is also good. The tyres stick to the road and they never squeal even on brutal braking in emergency situations, even though they are fitted on a car without ABS.
Overall conclusion: good tyres for the price range. However, do not expect them to behave like high performance tyres. If you own a powerful car and enjoy spirited driving, there are better (and more expensive) options to choose from.

Given 69% while driving a Hyundai Accent (185/60 R14) on mostly town for 9,500 easy going miles
Had them for over 2 years now with 15000+ km driven on them. The wear is definitely noticeable compared to tires from the past, but the grip and comfort you get for the price point, it's worth it to change them a season earlier than usual.

Latest Hankook Kinergy Eco 2 Reviews

Given 85% while driving a Toyota Yaris Mk4 Hybrid 1.5 (XP210, M15A FXE) (185/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
Switched to these from the 205/45R17 Bridgestone Ecopias that came with my Yaris Mk4, when I downgraded to 15" rims - Actually wanted Ventus Prime 3's but the dealer apparently has trouble reading beyond the manufacturer name. It's sad how little main dealers seem to care these days. Was expecting garbage from an Eco tyre, but have been pleasantly surprised! It's early days yet, but had to pop in a quick review just because the difference in road noise between the 17" Ecopias and the 15" Hankooks is stark! I don't know how much of this is down to the rim size drop vs the tyres, but the Ecopias were brain-drillingly horrible in terms of road noise, esp. on older tarmac and concrete-slab roads, while the Hankooks have been blissful on all surfaces so far! So far grip and handling don't seem too much different; If anything the car seems a bit nippier off the line and brakes a bit better, but doesn't seem to hold its momentum as much. Not tried it in the wet yet! Hopefully it continues like this as it wears, but so far it seems like another good tyre from Hankook!

Given 72% while driving a Hyundai i30 (205/55 R16 H) on mostly town for 2,000 average miles
I'm not happy with these tires. In dry weather, dry road, low speed the abs was activated even though it's the H speed category and they are almost brand new (less than a year old). This never happened with michelin or continental tires to me. Since they are unreliable on dry, I wonder what I have to expect on wet... I don't know about other hankook models, but thisone is not premium at all.
