Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 Crowned Top Performer in Auto Express All Season Tyre Test

Goodyear's Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 has been announced as the winner of Auto Express’ latest all-season tyre test. This achievement underscores the tyre's exceptional performance in challenging wet and snowy conditions, a crucial factor for UK drivers during winter.

The tyre stood out particularly in wet conditions, with Auto Express lauding it as "the best choice for the UK" in winter. Testers noted its impressive handling, describing it as having a "safe, front-limited balance" and providing ample warning when reaching its limits. The Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 didn't just excel in handling but also clinched victories in all other wet tests, showcasing its superior design and technology.

Additionally, the tyre was praised for its performance on snow. In tests, it was a mere 5% behind a winter tyre specifically designed for heavy snowfall regions, a testament to its adaptability and reliability in diverse weather conditions.

What sets the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 apart from its competitors is not just its grip and handling. It also emerged as the quietest and most fuel-efficient tyre in the tests. This is particularly noteworthy given the rising popularity of electric SUVs, where tyre noise and efficiency play a significant role in overall vehicle performance.

The tyre's superiority was further highlighted in comparisons with a benchmark premium SUV summer tyre. The Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 demonstrated three times the grip in braking and double the grip during acceleration, an important consideration given the increasing size and weight of modern SUVs.

Andy Marfleet, Marketing Director UK&I at Goodyear, commented on the victory, stating, “When it comes to choosing tyres for the colder, wetter UK months, there is no better product than Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3." He emphasised the tyre's excellent performance in extreme conditions and its optimisation for the latest generation of electric SUVs.

This achievement by Goodyear not only reinforces the brand's commitment to innovation but also provides a significant benchmark for tyre performance in the automotive industry, especially in regions with diverse and challenging weather conditions like the UK.
