I am not particularly fond of sport-utility vehicles. I’m not saying these vehicles are not great to drive, but I find them too big and too cumbersome as a daily driver. But of all the SUVs in the market, the Kia Sorento is one that deserves a lot of attention.
In this review of the Hankook Dynapro HP2 RA33, I got my hands on a 2017 Kia Sorento LX. My test car was equipped with all-wheel drive and the 2.4-liter naturally-aspirated motor paired with a 6-speed automatic.
The tires fitted to my test vehicle were the Hankook Dynapro HP2 RA33 which were wrapped in stock 17-inch wheels. The Dynapro HP2 were specifically designed to meet the demands of premium SUVs and are equipped to deliver the best possible all-season performance on all types of driving conditions.
What many people fail to realize is the Sorento offers terrific value for money. My test vehicle came with a lot of standard features and an unbeatable warranty. It was my first time to get behind the wheels of the Sorento so I was itching to find out how this vehicle drives.
Of course, I’m also here to report about the performance and value proposition of the Hankook Dynapro HP2 RA33. Hankook is proud to say the Dynapro HP2 is a high-performance all-season tire despite the rather conservative tread design. Let’s see how the tires perform in both wet and dry roads.
Hankook Dynapro HP2 RA33 Review: Features
The tire was manufactured using a high-loading silica compound that improves dry and wet traction and lowering the rolling resistance of the tire. It is also constructed with a jointless full-cover reinforced belt to further improve the high-speed stability of the tire.
In terms of price, I consider the Hankook Dynapro HP2 to be above average. It is not the cheapest SUV tire you can buy, nor is it the most expensive compared to other brands. But at approximately $105 per piece (235/65R17), you can buy a set of four tires for less than $450.
