Continental Premium Contact 5Continental has launched its new premium tyre, the ContiPremiumContact 5 suitable for a wide range of cars from compact, to luxury.

The ContiPremiumContact 5 is the latest generation tyre from Europe’s leading tyre manufacturer,boasting extremely short braking distances on dry and wet roads.Utilising the superb handling characteristics from the ContiSportContact 5 and the low rolling resistance characteristics from the ContiEcoContact 5, The ContiPremiumContact 5 is an excellent all-round performer.

Safety at the highest possible level is one thing all Continental tyres have in common but this is where  the ContiPremiumContact 5  excels. Greater contact with the road under braking is achieved thanks to the 3D edges, whilst an eco-contour reduces energy losses along the shoulder zone, minimizing fuel consumption with an overall mileage improvement of 12%.

The continued challenge in tyre design is to reduce rolling resistance and wear whilst, at the same time, ensuring the tyre still excels in wet braking. Continental’s latest tyre features a flexible sidewall for increased comfort and reduced rolling resistance, alongside whisper bars which reduce noise levels by up to 3db compared to its predecessor.

With one in every three cars in Europe now fitted with Continental tyres, the ContiPremiumContact 5 continues to raise the benchmark set by its predecessor.

The ContiPremiumContact 2 has also won many tests by independent journalists  throughout Europe, and the supreme quality of the ContiPremiumContact has earned it more than 300 approvals  from OE Manufacturers, proving first choice across a diverse range of vehicles.
