Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus review
What is it?
The Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus is a standard touring all season tire designed for coupes, sedans, minivans and small crossover vehicles looking to combine year-round traction, handling and comfort. The Ecopia line of tires from Bridgestone is "ecologically-oriented" and aims to reduce environmental impact through increased vehicle efficiency.
Strengths and weaknesses?
The Ecopia EP422 Plus has no exceptional qualities, but comfort characteristics, and ride quality in particular, are decent. Dry traction is average for the category.
Like many other all season Bridgestone tire options, the Ecopia EP422 Plus struggles when it encounters true winter conditions.
How does it compare?
No standout qualities and deficient winter performance makes the Ecopia EP422 Plus about an average tire within the standard touring all season tire category. The Ecopia EP422 Plus can't quite keep pace with current category leaders like the Continental TrueContact.
Some use restrictions may apply.
Anything else to know?
The standard touring all season tire category is highly competitive with numerous excellent options. We wouldn't consider the Ecopia EP422 Plus at the top of the class, but it's a viable tire option nonetheless; especially if true winter conditions are not the norm.
