Which?, the consumer champion, has awarded Best Buy status to the ContiWinterContact TS850 in two popular tyre sizes.
The Which? Best Buy endorsements reveal the must-have tyres across popular sizes. The awards highlight exceptional performance with an overall ranking and are seen as an important indicator for consumers looking to choose the best product available.
Continental has taken top spot with the ContiWinterContact TS850 in tyre size 225/45 R17 H, popular on models such as the Audi A3 and Vauxhall Astra. Which? awarded Best Buy status with an overall rating of 70%, adding; “The 17-inch version of the TS850 is our highest-scoring tyre in this category, with strong scores across the board, this tyre is hard to fault.”
Also taking top honours in tyre size 185/60 R15T, the ContiWinterContact TS850 has been awarded Best Buy status for one of the most popular supermini and medium sizes in the market. The size is fitted to cars such as the Renault Clio and Volkswagen Polo. Which? said; “Our experts measured good grip on all surfaces: dry road, wet road, snow and ice. Fuel economy and tyre wear were impressive, too.”
The ContiWinterContact TS850 has a wealth of innovative technical features which lead to this exceptional performance. The tyre offers motorists even better grip on wintry roads, as well as shorter braking distances in the wet, extended mileage and a further reduction on rolling resistance over its predecessor.
Peter Robb, brand manager at Continental said; “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, we are delighted that the TS 850 has been recognised by Which?.”
