Continental is building on its current range of tyres specifically designed for the 4×4 market with the launch of the ContiSportContact 5 SUV.
It offers ‘Unlimited driving fun thanks to excellent grip’ according to the tyres manufacturer.
The new tyre was developed to be equally suitable for sporty cars and SUVs with sporty driving characteristics.
According to Conti: “With this new development, the tyre engineers have made significant progress in comparison to the popular predecessor ContiSportContact 3:
Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions
Excellent road grip and safety when cornering
Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage
“This was made possible due to a new compound which focuses on maximum power transmission and provides low rolling resistance whilst driving normally. This rubber compound which carries the name “BlackChilli” uses the various vibrations of the tyre.”
The ContiSportContact 5 is available in a range of sizes from 17 inch upwards for cars and 18 inch upwards for SUV.
