For the launch of the new Bridgestone Turanza AllSeason 6, Bridgestone had the independent test body TÜV SÜD Automotive GmbH conduct a comprehensive test of the new all season tire, and compare it to the leaders in the all season category, the Continental AllSeasonContact, Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3, and Michelin CrossClimate 2.
While this isn't a traditional magazine test, it is interesting data, and as many of you have questions about the performance of the new Turanza AllSeason 6, we believe it's worth including on the site.

There are some missing tests you would usually see in a full tire test, such as dry and wet handling, but from the data we have, the new Bridgestone performs very well in the key safety tests of wet braking, dry braking and snow braking. We've applied a "normal" balanced all season score weighting to the overall results and the new Bridgestone performs best overall.
As always you can adjust the score weighting of the results here to see which tire is best for your own driving.
The new Turanza All Season 6 performed well in all tests, with its strongest performances in wet braking (1st place) and dry braking (2nd place). It also performed well in snow, ranking 2nd in snow braking and snow traction. Its performance in the wet circle test and straight aquaplaning was slightly weaker, coming in at 2nd and 4th place respectively
The CrossClimate 2 demonstrated strong performance in dry conditions, ranking 1st in dry braking. It also excelled in snow tests, achieving 1st place in snow braking, snow traction, and subjective snow handling. However, it did not perform as well in wet conditions, ranking 4th in wet braking and the wet circle test
