Pirelli Performs Well In Winter Tyre Tests
The track record of Pirelli’s winter tyres is very impressive and proof is provided, yet again, by a series of the toughest and most important tests in Europe – those of the automobile clubs and specialist motorist magazines in Germany and Austria, which test out the safety of a wide selection of winter tyres under typical winter driving conditions.
All the products in the Pirelli winter range, car (Winter Sottozero, Winter Snowsport, and Winter Snowcontrol), SUV (Scorpion Ice&Snow) and camper products (Citynet Winter Plus), have always claimed top rankings – both for safety and comfort – on all road surfaces. “Pirelli tyres,” observes Maurizio Boiocchi, head of Pirelli Tyre R&D, “are the result of non-stop development, both in compounds and in tyre structure, directed at predicting and satisfying the demands of consumers and automotive manufacturers not just for performance, but also for safety – a concern that is ever more keenly felt by drivers.”
Winning the seasonal tests in Germany and Austria is now a habit with Pirelli, combining Latin temperament with German reliability. Some of the magazines that carried out the winter tyre tests were ADAC motorwelt, auto touring, Auto Bild Alles Allrad, auto motor und sport, Auto Zeitung, Powercar and sport auto, among others
