Continental has picked up a coveted award for its winter tyres from a leading motoring magazine.
Continental’s new ContiWinterContact TS850 winter tyres have been declared the Editor’s Choice 2012 by Auto Express.
Expert product testers Kim Adams and Jamie Fretwell chose their 20 favourite products of 2012 from a range of car accessories from tools to technology and tyres to cleaning kits.
Auto Express said: “Tyres rarely make it on to our lists of favourites. We test dozens of them every year, and there’s generally not much between the top performers. But this Continental winter tyre grabbed our attention with a string of superb results.
“Impressive stuff, as excellence in one area usually means a trade-off elsewhere. But not with the TS850: it’s top in wet, dry and snowy conditions.”
