All tyre tests where Pirelli Cinturato Winter 2 was featured:
ADAC Winter tyre test 2023 225/45 R17
satisfactory
Ranked #12 of 16
The PIRELLI CINTURATO WINTER 2 found itself in the 12th position among 16 competitors, securing a final rating of 'Satisfactory'. Testers appreciated its good performance on wet and winter surfaces, highlighting its ability to brake effectively and handle well under such conditions. Additionally, its high projected mileage, low wear, light weight, and reduced fuel consumption were positively noted. However, the tyre faced criticism for significant weaknesses in ride comfort and handling at the limit on dry roads. In terms of driving safety, the tyre demonstrated noticeable deficiencies, particularly its delayed response to steering commands, which affected its balance and precision. On wet surfaces, while it managed to secure good scores in braking and resistance to longitudinal aquaplaning, it slightly fell short in transverse aquaplaning and handling, lacking in precision. When it came to snowy and icy conditions, it generally performed well, especially in braking and handling, though it narrowly missed out on a high score in snow traction. The tyre's environmental footprint was commended for its efficiency, with good marks for longevity and wear, as well as its favorable weight and fuel consumption.

Ranked #5 of 7
The Pirelli Cinturato Winter 2 showed a solid performance amidst stiff competition, securing the 5th position out of 7 contenders. This tire marked a significant step in Pirelli's overhaul of their Cinturato lineup, making a noteworthy debut in its category. Its performance on snow was impressive, claiming the second spot in the respective evaluations, demonstrating its prowess in winter conditions. Additionally, it excelled in dry conditions, particularly in dry braking, where it outperformed its rivals to take the first place. However, its overall potential was slightly hampered due to its performance in wet conditions, landing it in the 5th spot, where it showcased good balance but required careful handling to maintain traction. Moreover, while there was an improvement in fuel economy compared to its last year's performance, there remains room for enhancement. This mixed performance solidifies its standing as a competitive option, though with specific areas identified for improvement.

Ranked #4 of 6
The Pirelli Cinturato Winter 2 secured the 4th position among 6 contenders in its first-ever evaluation, marking the completion of Pirelli's revamp of the Cinturato lineup. With a design that benefits from a tread that evolves as it wears, the tyre proved competitive, especially on snow where it shone close to the top of the pack. It captured second place in both traction and handling on snowy terrains, showing a commendable performance that was only slightly edged out in other conditions. Despite falling behind the leaders in wet conditions, it outperformed certain rivals, including Michelin and Vredestein, particularly in deeper aquaplaning challenges. Its balanced and stable handling was noted across various tests, despite a slight compromise in front grip compared to the very best. On dry surfaces, though, the Winter 2 lagged marginally with the slowest handling track time, revealing a softer ride and less sharp steering than its competitors. However, it distinguished itself as the quietest tyre in the lineup, offering a notably silent ride at the expense of fuel efficiency.

Ranked #7 of 8
Securing a 7th place out of 8 competitors, the Pirelli Cinturato Winter 2 presented mixed results in its performance evaluation. On wet surfaces, the tire demonstrated moderately long braking distances but performed well in aquaplaning scenarios. However, it struggled with lateral grip, restricting higher cornering speeds. In dry conditions, it proved to be a reliable choice, offering a stable rear when changing loads and short braking distances, though it was considered average in efficiency. The tire faced significant challenges on snow, where it showed the longest braking distances, the least lateral support, and sluggish responses to steering commands, highlighting its weaknesses in wintry conditions.
