HANOVER, Germany (March 13, 2014) — About 20,000 readers placed their votes for Auto Zeitung magazine’s annual readers’ choice award for the “top brand,” picking Continental as the winner for 2013 in the tire category.

This was the sixth time the tire maker was named the top tire brand, with brands from France, the U.S., Japan and Italy following Conti. The readers of Auto Zeitung selected their top brands in a total of 20 categories.
