    The world’s sixth largest tire maker, Pirelli is based in Milan, Italy, and began its journey as a rubber manufacturer in 1872. A frontrunner in sponsoring sports competitions, Pirelli has led title sponsorship of prestigious mega events such as the FIA Formula One World Championship, FIM World Superbike Championship, and Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series to name a few. Focusing on passenger car tires, Pirelli offers products in all-season, summer, and winter categories. In its wide range of summer tires, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde stands out with its optimized tread, durability, and excellent grip year-round.

    The Scorpion Verde is a performance, summer tire for SUVs and crossovers that utilizes Pirelli’s exclusive technologies such as a noise canceling system (PNCS), run flat for driving without pressure, and a new tire construction tech – Seal Inside – for puncture-proof tread life. While these technologies make the drive safe and comfortable, the optimized tread pattern and advanced silica ratio lend excellent handling, stability, traction, longevity, and reduced fuel consumption. The Pirelli tire promises to return excellent performance due to its superb road grip and enhanced wet/dry traction while keeping the ride quiet and comfortable. Does it really deliver on the promise made? Let’s find out in this Pirelli Scorpion Verde tire review.

    Features and Benefits

    As a summer tire for CUVs and SUVs, the Scorpion Verde is engineered for high-end performance in warmer weather conditions. Here’s how it does that.

    An optimized tread pattern and unique rubber compounds help prolong the tread life while improving stability and lowering rolling resistance which ultimately leads to high fuel efficiency. The circumferential grooves and intelligently placed sipes allow effective grip and improved stability on dry and wet surfaces. The grooves allow quick evacuation of water from the tread to regain traction and avoid the risk of hydroplaning.

    The Scorpion Verde features a Run Flat mechanism that adds an extra safety net to your SUV by providing greater control over the car in emergency situations. It aids you to continue driving even when there’s a quick loss of inflation pressure from your tires. Moreover, the innovative Seal Inside construction allows you to keep moving even when your tires have punctured thanks to the special seal inside tires that covers almost 85% of the accidents caused by pressure loss.

    To keep the noise levels at a minimum, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde uses a patented Pirelli Noise Canceling System (PNCS) which includes a device placed within the tire on its circumferential wall. The tire maker claims that it absorbs sound and reduces noise levels to half. With special attention to a quiet ride, the Scorpion Verde has optimized pitch sequence and phasing which further dampens the internal noise. The use of innovative materials and a highly optimized profile is claimed to reduce 30% of the sound while cutting CO2 emissions and improving fuel economy in due course.

    Pros and Cons

    Every tire comes with its share of advantages and disadvantages. Let’s have a look at the pros and cons of the tire in this Pirelli Scorpion Verde review.

    Pros

    • Run flat technology for safe driving even during loss of air pressure
    • Seal Inside construction for continuous driving even after a puncture
    • Pirelli Noise Canceling System for reduced road noise
    • Optimized tread pattern for high-grip and traction on dry and wet surfaces
    • Circumferential grooves for quick water disposal and hydroplaning resistance

    Cons

    • Can’t be used when temperatures are consistent below 45 degrees Fahrenheit
    • Handling isn’t great in wet conditions
    • It isn’t the most affordable option

    SimpleTire’s view on Pirelli Scorpion Verde tires

    Indeed, the Pirelli Scorpion series has got some recognition among SUV lovers, and the Scorpion Verde too is a worthy option for this class of buyers. In the performance category of summer tires, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde (starting at $163.98) locks horns with the Michelin Latitude Sport 3 (starts at $206.96), Continental CrossContact UHP (starts at $155.96), Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV (starts at $253.99), and Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport (starts at $222.96). It performs extremely well in terms of comfort, noise, traction, and longevity, however, the handling in wet could be a bit of a bother for folks experiencing precipitation more frequently.

    Vehicles the Pirelli Scorpion Verde is an OEM tire for

    Being a summer tire, the Scorpion Verde is preferred by premium auto brands for their luxury SUVs such as the Mercedes-Benz GLC300 and GLE350, Porsche Macan, Jaguar E-Pace, Audi Q7, and Volvo XC90. If you are planning to have a great replacement tire for your luxury SUV or crossover, you have a capable contender in the name of Pirelli Scorpion Verde – backed by some of the best in the business.
