In a test against its competitors, the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-2 received top marks from Auto Bild allrad for its exemplary driving capabilities on snowy and wet roads, safe performance in aquaplaning conditions and low tire noise.

In the category ‘handling on snow’, Goodyear’s Vector 4Seasons SUV Gen-2 outperformed the other contestants and followed closely behind the performance of a regular winter tire. When tested on aquaplaning capabilities, Goodyear came out on top as well with a shared first place, outperforming traditional winter and summer tires along the way.

“At Goodyear, we understand that safety in all weather and road conditions is the most important concern for consumers,” said Mike Rytokoski, Chief Marketing Officer for Goodyear Europe. “That’s why we made the conscious decision to develop a well-balanced tire that delivers a top performance in all conditions. This has been substantiated by the fact that Goodyear has achieved more all-season test wins than any other brand tested over the last five years.”[2]
