2023 Auto Bild All Season Tire Test

Following on from the 35 all season shootout, Autobild have placed the top 15 through the usual array of tests, including dry, wet and snow testing, plus they've tested wear!

Unlike the Tire Reviews test this year, they also managed to test the new Bridgestone Turanza All Season 6 and Continental AllSeasonContact 2! Can either of these new tires displace the Michelin CrossClimate 2 at the top of the results? Read on to find out!

Dry

Dry braking is where the Michelin CrossClimate 2 always performed well, and once again it is the best all season tire, 1.7 meters behind the summer tire, and 0.6 meters ahead of the second placed Kleber Quadraxer 3. The new Bridgestone finished a little behind the Kleber, but performed well.

The Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3, which struggled in dry braking, performed very well in dry handling, proving to be the fastest around the lap by a significant margin. The Kleber and Michelin once again did very well.

Wet

Bridgestone were back at the front of wet braking, something the A005 EVO used to do very well. The new Continental also performed very well, highlighting the advantage of the newest products.

The Vredestein Quatrac was the fastest around the wet handling lap by quite the margin, with the Goodyear and Bridgestone once again performing well.

There was a spread of results in the straight and curved aquaplaning tests, data below.

Snow

The Goodyear was back at the front for snow braking, with the BFGoodrich also beating the Michelin, which is traditionally the strongest all season tire in the snow.

Goodyear also beat the Michelin in snow traction testing.

The CrossClimate 2 was back at the front for snow handling, closely followed by the new Bridgestone.

Comfort

The Kumho had the lowest external noise, with the Pirelli and Continental also proving to be quiet tires.

Value

The important wear tests highlighted some interesting results! The Nexen N Blue 4Season 2 had a huge lead over the group, with a predicted 75,034 kms, with Hankook and the new Continental also performing extremely well. The new Bridgestone has improve the wear of the previous product, but could still only end up midpack in the group. Firestone and Falken performed well below average.

Nexen kept its lead in the value metric, which is the expected mileage divided by the purchase price, proving to cost a third of the worst tires in the group. Of the top tires, the Hankook, Goodyear and Continental all proved to be good value.

Firestone might have worn quickly, but it had the lowest rolling resistance by an impressive amount! The new Continental also performed very well in second.

Auto Bild have started testing the fuel consumption, which changes the order somewhat. Whether this is down to test conditions, or there's more to rolling resistance than the drum test shows we're not sure.
