Motorists given two compelling reasons to visit HiQ!
10th September 2010
Motorists across the UK have been given two more compelling reasons to visit their nearest HiQ centre, thanks to a pair of headline grabbing award winners.
The magazine tested 12 tyre brands in key areas such as rolling resistance, noise and price in an attempt to find the best rubber on the market.
Goodyear were ranked top in the wet handling and cornering tests, proving the brand's wet weather performance credentials.
The wet handling and cornering tests combined braking, cornering and overall handling of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tyre. Auto Express named Goodyear the "wet weather specialists" and said: "Goodyear inspired confidence and gave sharp turn in."
The test was particularly significant because the results underline how the tyre's unique Active CornerGrip Technology, which provides a more even pressure distribution across the contact patch during cornering offering more grip, ensures performance and greater safety without any compromise.
Providing outstanding performance in the areas of wet handling and cornering is essential to safe driving in wet conditions and offers essential grip and security.
Meanwhile, Sava took top spot in the noise test beating premium brands such as Bridgestone, Pirelli and Michelin and ranked in second place in the rolling resistance tests.
Kate Rock, PR Support Manager at Goodyear, said: "Wet weather performance is the area in which Goodyear strives to be first in the market and we have achieved this in the latest test.
"The Sava intensa uhp is the right tyre choice for the value and quality conscious driver who is looking for long-lasting, low-cost and reliable high-performance tyres. The Auto Express Tyre Test proves the performance of the new Sava intensa uhp in the mid range segment."
