Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance Recognized by 11 Magazine Tire Tests

Brussels, Belgium, April 16, 2015—Goodyear announced that its EfficientGrip Performance tire secured 11 podium placements, five of which were first place, in competitive tire tests from top magazines across Europe. The tests, which were conducted during May to November 2014 on a range of sizes and published starting in February, aknowledge the tire’s capabilities on both wet and dry roads.

The EfficientGrip Performance placed first in five prestigious tire tests, published in the following publications: Teknikens Värld,Aftonbladet Bil,ADAC / Stiftung Warentest, ACE-Lenkrad / GTÜ / ARBÖ and ÖAMTC / TCS.[1] The tire secured second and third placements in six other tests, featured in the following publications: ADAC / Stiftung Warentest, ÖAMTC / TCS, Auto motor und sport, Auto Straßenverkehr, and two in Que Choisir.[2]

“We are very proud of the performance of the EfficientGrip Performance in summer tire tests. The results across a range of premiere publications in EMEA help to reinforce the capabilities of the tire, including short braking distance on wet and dry roads and low fuel consumption over the lifetime of the tire due to wear control technology,” said Hans Vrijsen, Director Marketing EMEA at Goodyear. “Additionally, the majority of EfficientGrip Performance tires are rated A on wet grip and B on fuel efficiency, marking the second year for Goodyear that BA labeled tires have performed so well in summer tire tests.”

In addition to the impressive performance of the EfficientGrip Performance, the EfficientGrip SUV placed first in tires tests from Auto Zeitung and Auto Bild allrad, and the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 placed first in Auto Zeitung and placed third in Auto Bild Sportscars.[3]
