Bosch Aerotwin scoops Auto Express Product Award

Bosch’s Aerotwin wiper blade has retained its title as ‘Best Wiper Blade’ in the Auto Express Product Awards 2018. This is the product’s second accolade in a matter of weeks, as Auto Express picked the Bosch flat blade wiper as its Best Buy for wiper blades and awarded it a top five star review.

Auto Express Product Tester, Kim Adams, said: “A peerless performance secures another Product Award win for the Bosch Aerotwin wiper blades. They felt really solid in the hand, and were the easiest blades to install on test, slotting securely and seamlessly into our Skoda’s wiper arms. Once wiping, they cleaned the windscreen with flawless precision, leaving no streaks or smears, and dispersing as much washer fluid as we could spray at them. They were also among the quietest blades we tested, both on the move and when parked up. A convincing and deserving victory. ”
With just over 97% market coverage, vehicles can benefit from the flat blade wiper technology regardless of the age or type of vehicle.

“The Bosch Aerotwin wiper blade proves itself to be the best time and time again. With many competitors on the market, none can match the consistent performance of the Bosch flat blade technology,” commented Silke Walter, Bosch Product Specialist for filters and wiper blades, Europe North. “Retaining this title is a great win for Bosch Aerotwin, and only further proves that investing in Bosch technology will provide great results every time.”

The award winning Aerotwin range features Bosch’s Power Protection Plus, a unique dual wiper rubber and coating. Power Protection Plus optimises wiper performance throughout the service life of the wiper without leaving streaks or deposits on the windscreen of the vehicle. Power Protection Plus makes the wiper element lip incredibly robust and resistant, increasing its service life. With even extreme weather conditions having little effect on the material, Power Protection Plus reduces the friction of the material to a minimum, meaning hardly any running noise whether the windscreen is wet or virtually dry.

Bosch Gigalight Plus 120 highly commended

Bosch was also highly commended in the Bulb Category of the awards, with the Bosch Gigalight Plus 120 getting a mention. Providing up to 120% more light on the road ahead compared to their standard halogen counterpart, the Gigalight Plus 120 offers brighter light and a longer beam.
Performance is further enhanced thanks to an optimised filament size, while a special blue coating produces a clean white light. The increased light intensity means a clearer view of the road ahead helping to reduce the risk of road accidents.
