DriverReviews Launches the 2023 Customer Choice Awards

DriverReviews today launches the 2023 DriverReviews Customer Choice Awards. These awards are chosen from the opinions of real motorists, across a range of vehicle segments leaving genuine, verified feedback about their tyres.

With over 350,000 tyre reviews covering more than 300 million miles on the road, DriverReviews have collated the views and experiences of drivers to present awards across nine categories.

The Customer Choice Awards span a wide spectrum of vehicle categories that mirror the most popular automotive segments in the UK. The awards also feature All Season tyres, acknowledging the increasing popularity of this tyre category.

  • High-Performance cars
  • Hot Hatches
  • Medium & Large SUVs
  • Small SUVs
  • Family cars
  • Large Family cars
  • City cars
  • All Season tyres
  • All Season SUV tyres

In each category, there are three recognitions: a ‘winner,’ a ‘highly recommended’, and a ‘commended’ award. Through these awards, DriverReviews strives to offer consumers an impartial and genuine selection in every segment, derived from real-world reviews.

“When shoppers are in the market for new tyres, the tyre buying experience can often become daunting due to the extensive range of tyre options available. DriverReviews is committed to assisting tyre buyers on their journey by providing verified tyre reviews from other drivers and presenting the Customer Choice Awards, all aimed at facilitating well-informed decisions for drivers when selecting their new tyres” commented Adam Butcher, Director at DriverReviews.

DriverReviews has awarded accolades to several tyre brands, including the Continental SportContact 7 as the winner in the Hot Hatches tyre category, recognising the Hankook Ventus Prime 4 as the top choice in the Large Family Car category, and for the second consecutive year, honouring the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S as the leader in the High-Performance car category. In the highly competitive All Season category, the Michelin CrossClimate 2 emerged as the distinguished winner, while the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 SUV claimed the top spot in the Best All Season tyres for SUVs category.

“We are incredibly excited to launch the 2023 DriverReviews Customer Choice Awards and share the experiences of real-world drivers” continued Butcher. “At a time where consumers are increasingly turning to the internet for pre-purchase product research, DriverReviews stands as a trusted platform committed to providing impartial and transparent insights. We look forward to collecting many more customer tyre reviews in the years ahead, further enriching our reviews network to instil even greater confidence among prospective tyre buyers in the future.”
