It binds allergens, prevents the growth of bacteria, molds and fungi by over 98% and eliminates almost 100% of particulate matter.
Selection of the product of the year is an annual event. The market research institute Nielsen conducted an online study among more than 10,000 representative consumers in France. As part of this study, the participants were asked to choose their preferred product by rating the attractiveness of the product and their satisfaction with it in a comprehensive questionnaire. The participants also rated how innovative the product is.
The MANN-FILTER FreciousPlus came first both in these three criteria and in terms of consumer acceptance. In particular, the cabin filter was rated very highly in all 12 customer satisfaction aspects. It received the highest marks for product effectiveness, meeting the expectations of users and its use in practice. The result of all the satisfied testers can be summarized as follows: the FreciousPlus cabin filter is effective against allergens and particulate matter, is easy to use and meets the testers' expectations.
As a result of this and thanks to more than 10,000 study participants, the FreciousPlus cabin filter from MANN-FILTER was chosen as the Product of the Year 2016.

But it goes without saying that feedback from consumers is extremely valuable to us. We are pleased that the users were won over by the effectiveness of our FreciousPlus cabin filter, which has both an anti-allergen and anti-microbial effect", explains Marie-Jo Faivre, Marketing Manager for the French Automotive Aftermarket at MANN+HUMMEL, enthusiastically.
