Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 has been crowned the winner of ADAC’s latest 15-inch summer tyre test, which compared 16 different tyres in a popular size for the small car segment.
ADAC, the German motor authority, published the test along with ÖAMTC and TCS, its counterparts for Austria and Switzerland.
The tested size was 185/65R15 with speed rating H, measuring a number of criteria including performance in dry and wet conditions, noise, fuel consumption and wear.
In the test report, ADAC recommended Goodyear’s EfficientGrip Performance 2 for ‘frequent drivers’ as it scored the highest mileage of the 16 tested products. With strong results in all categories, the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 gained the best overall score, taking into account its results across all test criteria.
Mileage and longevity is a key feature of the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2, which boasts 50 per cent higher mileage than its predecessor1 and 20 per cent higher than its closest tested competitor.
The latest ADAC summer tyre test confirms the tyre’s impressive mileage with it scoring a ‘very good’ rating for its longevity, and strong results across all other tested criteria.
In 2021, ADAC declared Goodyear’s EfficientGrip Performance 2 the top performer for mileage in an intensive test, in which the Goodyear tyre exhibited a mileage result that was more than twice that of some rival brands.
The 2022 ADAC test measured the 185/65R15 size, which is a common fitment on many small cars, such as the Audi A1, Citroen C3, Fiat Panda, Renault Clio and Zoe, and Volkswagen Polo.
Laurent Colantonio, regional technology director EMEA, Goodyear said: “The EfficientGrip Performance 2 line is designed to be an excellent all-rounder for drivers of a wide variety of cars who require excellent mileage and longevity alongside reliable dry and wet performance.
“These characteristics demonstrate that this award-winning product line is ready for the modern electrifying car parc.”
