Continental has won two coveted winter tyres awards from top UK motoring magazines.
The German tyres company received the accolades for the ContiWinterContact TS830P from the best selling car magazine, Auto Express, and monthly title evo.
It is Auto Express magazines second ever winter tyre test, aimed at highlighting exceptional performance, quality, safety, desirability and value alongside the magazine’s annual tyre tests.
The awards are seen within the motoring industry as a stamp of approval offering motoring enthusiasts confidence when looking for their next winter tyre purchase.
Auto Express commented, “Consistently good performances earn Continental our winter tyre crown. Great all round performance with no weaknesses, sees off winter rivals and takes the win.”
The first evo winter tyre test echoed this opinion in its December issue. Tested against eight competitor winter and all-season tyres in size 225/45R17, the awards recognised the ContiWinterContact TS830P across a broad spectrum, ranging from snow tests to road feel and refinement.
evo said, “Continental is the best performer overall, with solid results seeing it take first place. What our test shows is that not only are winter tyres vastly superior in the snow but that the best outperform a quality summer tyre when the roads are wet and near freezing.”
