Continental tyres have scooped the coveted “Best Brand” award in the German magazine Auto Zeitung reader poll for the third year in a row.
Last autumn more than 20,000 of the magazine’s readers voted on a number of categories, including tyres, with the results published in the latest issue of the magazine.
According to the German tyres manufacturer, the readers’ positive evaluation of the premium tyre brand is also reflected in the very good test ratings awarded to Continental tyres by the experts from ‘Auto Zeitung’ in their regular tests of summer and winter tyres for cars.
Last year, for example, in the winter tyre test, Auto Zeitung gave the car tyres manufactured by the Hanover-based European market leader Continental the top rating ‘highly recommended’.
In the 2009 test, Continental summer tyres for cars also took first place.
In the vote to determine the ‘best brand’ in the tyres category, Continental competed alongside brands from European, American and Asian manufacturers. Auto Zeitung readers also cast their votes in ten other categories.
