Auto Express has awarded a commendation to the Premium Contact 2 tyre by Continental. The car review magazine Auto Express described the Continental tyre as “among the best in the wet, particularly curved aquaplaning”, adding that the tyre “managed unlike most rain masters, to match that in the dry and in rolling resistance tests.”
Continental has been recognised in previous years by Auto Express, with the ContiEcoContact 3 being awarded a product honour in 2006.
The Product Manager at Continental, Peter Robb, commented on behalf of the company: “We are delighted to have been commended by Auto Express” he said. Mr Robb also added that “the ContiPremiumContact 2 is a popular choice with car manufacturers as an original equipment fitting to their latest generation cars. This test result is proof of its outstanding performance. ”
The ContiPremiumContact 2 tyre has proved a popular choice with car manufacturers…having been approved for the Audi A5, the Toyota Auris, the Fiat Bravo and the Mercedes-Benz C Class. A self-supporting run flat version of the tyre has also just been approved for the BMW 1 and 3 series.
The leading car magazine Which? also recommended the Continental Premium Contact tyre as a “best buy” in its 205/55 R16 V test in the February issue.
