Continental tyres have scooped a coveted accolade in a top motoring magazine award.
The German tyres manufacturer has been named best of the best in the 2010 Auto Express Product Awards.
The magazine has revealed the top motoring products that can really add value to a car and rated the ContiPremiumContact 2 as the best tyre to do just that.
According to Auto Express: “Unlike some designs which star in one performance area only, the PremiumContact 2 is a true all rounder. It stayed in the leading pack for all our tests. So whether the roads are dry or soaked, you know you are on the right rubber with the Continental.”
Scott Benbow, product manager at Continental, added: “We are really pleased that Continental has been recognised by this leading magazine.
“The ContiPremiumContact 2 is no stranger to awards but knowing how tough the Auto Express test is, to perform consistently and come out as the best all-rounder is a real achievement.”
The ContiPremiumContact 2 is available in a wide range of sizes from 14” to 18” to suit vehicles from a compact car to the family hatchback and an executive saloon.
Continental has strong relationships with vehicle manufacturers and the tyre can be found on all popular brands in the market including Audi, BMW, Ford, Renault and Volkswagen.
There was also high praise for Continental’s biggest selling 4×4 ultra high performance tyre, the ContiCrossContact UHP, which was also a top contender and commended by the testers.
The magazine commented: “Another great showing from this top all-rounder. Again the Continental was near the top of the results table throughout.”
