Continental tyres deserve a warm round of applause for winning the top winter tyres award bestowed by Auto Express for its ConiWinterContact TS850.

The UK’s top weekly selling car magazine hailed the tyre as offering: “A balanced approach to all disciplines delivers success. Continental has got this down to a fine art, and has tasted victory before with its ContiWinterContact TS850. Good all-round performance with few compromises make this a winter tyre winner.”

The winter tyre test accolade celebrates the best of the best in the winter tyre market, revealing the most inspirational products for the cold season. The tests highlight exceptional performance, quality, safety, desirability and are seen as a great endorsement of the product for vehicle owners looking to purchase.

Scott Benbow, Product Marketing Manager at Continental tyres, said: “This win for the ContiWinterContact TS850 is an excellent endorsement for our product range, continuing to underline the impressive performance of our winter tyres.”

Building upon the success of its predecessor the ContiWinterContact TS830, this latest addition offers even better grip on typical wintry roads, as well as shorter braking distances in the wet, enhanced handling, extended mileage and a further reduction in rolling resistance, making it an excellent companion for winter driving conditions.

According to Continental, its latest tyre features a high number of block edges and sipes, helping to increase traction and braking performance on snow and ice, while at the same time, more edges are available to transfer lateral forces when negotiating bends or changing lanes at high speed. It says the combination ensures ‘perfect handling and outstanding grip even in extreme driving situations’.
