Continental's ContiWinterContact TS830P has been won the top spot in the Auto Express and evo winter tyre awards.

The Auto Express winter tyre awards highlight performance, quality, safety, desirability and value combined with the magazine's tyre tests.

Auto Express commented, "Consistently good performances earn Continental our winter tyre crown. Great all round performance with no weaknesses, sees off winter rivals and takes the win."

Tests against eight competitor winter and all season tyres in size 225/45R17, the awards selected the ContiWinterContact TS830P across a broad spectrum, ranging from snow tests to road feel and refinement.

evo said, "Continental is the best performer overall, with solid results seeing it take first place. What our test shows is that not only are winter tyres vastly superior in the snow but that the best outperform a quality summer tyre when the roads are wet and near freezing."

The ContiWinterContact TS830P features a large number of blocks and sipes on the tyre shoulder, offering a large number of gripping edges and therefore more effective traction in the snow. The compound used and the construction enable the tyres to perform well in wet conditions.
