press release

Each year, the German car magazines “Auto, Motor und Sport” and “Auto Bild” ask their readers to name their top brands when it comes to car accessories, spare parts and services. “Auto Bild” awards the title of “Best Brand in All Classes” to the brand that enjoys the most trust among car drivers, with readers given a choice of 22 categories. Just like last year, they voted Bosch the “Multi Champion.” This year's title in “Auto, Motor und Sport” is called “Best Brand 2013,” in which readers rated 23 categories ranging from exhaust systems to spark plugs. Bosch was the most popular brand in this vote too — and by some distance.

Bosch Windshield Wipers Record Outstanding Result among “Best Brands”
Nearly 113,000 readers of “Auto, Motor und Sport” took part in this year's vote to find the “Best Brands.” They awarded Bosch first place in seven categories — batteries, lights, filters, windshield wipers, workshop chains, tools and spark plugs. Bosch also gained second place in the brakes/brake linings product category. Bosch recorded an outstanding result for its windshield wipers in 2012, but actually managed to top it this year with 92.6% of the vote. In previous years, readers of “Auto, Motor und Sport” have consistently rated the Bosch brand image as outstanding.

Double Success for Car Batteries from Bosch as Best Brand
Almost 100,000 readers voted in the “Auto Bild” poll of the best brands. Bosch appeared in six categories and made it onto the podium in every one, coming in second place for its brakes and first place for its car batteries, windshield wipers, workshop chains and spark plugs. Bosch once again enjoyed a double success for its car batteries, with “Auto Bild” readers confirming that Bosch batteries offer the best quality and service life, as well as the best price/performance ratio.
