ContiWinterContact TS850 an Auto Express favourite
Continental has commented on the selection of the ContiWinterContact TS850 as one of Auto Express magazine’s Editor’s Choice 2012 products. Peter Robb, brand manager at Continental said: “We are delighted to have been commended 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.”
Auto Express product testers Kim Adams and Jamie Fretwell chose their 20 favourite products of 2012 from a range of car accessories from tools to technology and tyres to cleaning kits. Commenting on the TS850, the publication wrote: “Tyres rarely make it on to our lists of favourites. We test dozens of them every year, and there’s generally not much between the top performers. But this Continental winter tyre grabbed our attention with a string of superb results…Impressive stuff, as excellence in one area usually means a trade-off elsewhere. But not with the TS850: it’s top in wet, dry and snowy conditions.”
This is not the first time that Continental’s winter tyres have impressed the judging panel at Auto Express this year. The ContiWinterContact TS830P was awarded best winter tyre in the 2012 Auto Express Product Awards.
