Cooper Discoverer All Season

American producer Cooper will have hoped for more from the brand-new Discoverer All Season, but it can take some solace from being closer to the pace than the Nankang.

American producer Cooper will have hoped for more from the brand-new Discoverer All Season, but it can take some solace from being closer to the pace than the Nankang. There was little to choose between the Discoverer, Falken and the similarly new Hankook. The Cooper had the edge on snow, where it felt good, although care was needed with corner entry speeds. 

It was close to the pace in the deepwater of the aquaplaning tests but less happy in the handling test. The balance was decent but the grip was less than most rivals. It did better in the dry, with a decent result in braking and close to the best around the handling track despite finishing last. Plus it was among the best in the cabin noise test.

We say: Cooper still has work to do on its all-season offering but this is a decent start
