Continental tyres take top spot in Auto Express awards

6th September 2013

Continental has claimed the accolade of top spot in the Auto Express ultimate tyre test, thanks to the performance of its ContiSportContact 5 product.

Criteria for the award included overall performance, quality, desirability, value and safety, each of which are crucial when it comes to the tyres vehicles are running.

Auto Express said: “The engineers at Continental have really found something when it comes to stopping, both in the wet and dry. In wet conditions, the tyre’s braking performance was much better than any of its competitors."

Peter Robb, brand manager at the manufacturer, explained that the accolade is an "excellent endorsement" for the product range the company produces.

He added that it "reiterates our investment in research and development, offering maximum safety when pushed to the limit".

The firm's ContiSportContact 5 tyres were found to perform well in all conditions, as well as reducing fuel consumption in the vehicles fitted with them.
