Continental bags award for top winter tyres

14th May 2012

Continental has garnered yet more praise for its range of compounds, after Auto Express magazine awarded its Best Winter Tyre gong to the firm's latest designs.

The ContiWinterContact TS830P tyres took top spot in the publications 2012 product awards.

It follows another set of grueling tests in Northern Sweden, designed to assess the ability of each set of winter tyres in cold conditions.

Winter compounds are designed to provide drivers with extra grip when driving on icy roads, with the tyres designed to be more reliable than conventional ones in temperatures of seven degrees Celsius or under.

Continental's offering was top of the pile this time round, in a win that marked the company's second consecutive first place finish in the winter-bound test.

After receiving the award, Peter Robb, brand manager at Continental, expressed his satisfaction at the prize.

“This additional win for the ContiWinterContact TS830P is an excellent endorsement for our product range and comes at a time of growing awareness of the need for winter tyres within the UK market," he said.

The accolade is the second in recent times for Continental who received a recent Which? Best Buy award for its ContiPremiumContact 5 and ContiEcoContact 5 tyres.
