BEST FOR Cars, crossovers and SUVs
TESTED BY the Clark family, parents of 5-year-old twins
BOTTOM LINE “The Inspire tires were comparable to other wallet-friendly brands and slightly better than my current tires. My driving experience saw little change in quality. As a daily commuter, I’d recommend these as a solid value option.” — Ian Clark
While SUVs and crossovers have increased sales to dominate the auto market in Canada, when it comes to a family car, the smaller sedan is still a smart choice. Sedans use less gas, can be less expensive to purchase, lease or maintain and are easier for some drivers to manoeuvre in tight spaces. They’re also more economical if commuting is part of your daily routine or your family requires a second car. Yes, there’s less storage, but depending on your family’s needs, that may not be an issue. You can fit two car seats of any size, ideal for a family of four.
The Clark family—Ian, Ariane and their five-year-old twins—tested the Sailun Inspire All-Season tire on their second car, which Ian uses daily to commute to work. He drove approximately 700 to 800 km during the testing period and considered performance, safety and quality.
