Continental winter tyre is Auto Express Editor’s Choice

4th January 2013

The new ContiWinterContact TS850 tyre from Continental has been named the Editor’s Choice 2012 by motoring magazine Auto Express.

The publication’s expert product testers Kim Adams and Jamie Fretwell selected the tyres as part of their 20 favourite products of 2012. Products such as tools, technology and cleaning kits were also featured on the list.

To appear on the list is high praise, as Auto Express points out that tyres rarely make it on to its favourite lists. The magazine tests a number of tyres each year, but believes there is generally not a great deal of difference between performers. However, the new Continental winter tyre provided a number of superb results.

The publication said: “Excellence in one area usually means a trade-off elsewhere. But not with the TS850: it’s top in wet, dry and snowy conditions.”

Brand manager at Continental Peter Robb was obviously delighted with the plaudits given by Auto Express.

“The ContiWinterContact TS850 has taken the winter market by storm. In a string of tyre tests in Europe, the tyre has consistently beaten the best to take top spot. This award from Auto Express is another testament to its outstanding performance.”
