Auto Bild recognises Goodyear’s “future-oriented sustainability” in prestigious award

Leading German magazine Auto Bild has awarded Goodyear its prestigious ‘summer tire manufacturer of the year’ title, stating “The best summer tires come from Goodyear” in recognition of award-winning products across the Goodyear range that offer “dynamic top performance” in a sustainable manner1.

This latest award was published in the 13 April 2022 issue of Auto Bild2 and follows a number of recent Goodyear wins in the same magazine group, including for Eagle F1 Asymmetric 63, EfficientGrip 2 SUV4 and EfficientGrip Performance 25

The review headline stated “the best summer tires come from Goodyear”, continuing on to explain that “the new tire models from Goodyear convince with both dynamic top performance as well as with future-oriented sustainability.”

Furthermore, this latest success follows on from Goodyear being awarded Auto Bild’s all-season tire manufacturer of the year award in both 2020 and 2021 with specific focus on the Vector 4Seasons Gen-36

The latest addition to Goodyear’s summer tire range is Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6, an ultra-high performance (UHP) tire designed to be ‘Ready for Anything’, combining dry and wet performance, efficiency and readiness for electric vehicles and future mobility.

Laurent Colantonio, Regional Technology Director EMEA, Goodyear: “We are extremely proud to be named as Auto Bild’s summer tire manufacturer of the year. This award recognises the engineering efforts and technology advances that go into creating a summer tire range that covers different corners of the market. Adding this to our win of Auto Bild’s all-season tire test underlines Goodyear’s expertise in developing tires capable of performing in varied conditions, and in many different parameters, from ultimate efficiency to extreme performance and anything in between.”
