Continental has been awarded ‘Best Buy’ status for two of its ContiPremiumContact 5 and ContiEcoContact 5 tyres by Which?
The consumer champion’s endorsements were achieved for two different tyres sizes, 165/70 R14T and 205/55 R16V, and are seen as an important indicator for motorists looking for the best product available.
Which? tested 26 tyres in two sizes, including 12 different brands in size 165/70 R14T and 14 in 205/55 R16V, adding; “Continental has been very successful with its two new tyres, topping the table in both our test sizes.”
Taking top honours following its recent launch, the ContiPremiumContact 5 has been awarded best buy status for one of the most popular sizes in the market, the 205/55 R16W commonly fitted to medium cars such as the BMW 1 Series, Ford Focus and VW Passat.
While the ContiPremiumContact 5 beat off competition to take top spot with an overall rating of 70%.
Jonathan Hayter, product manager for Continental, said: “This is another great endorsement for Continental.
“Both the ContiPremiumContact 5 and ContiEcoContact 5 deliver outstanding performance and give motorists greater safety when it is most needed.
“The ContiEcoContact 5 delivers reduced CO2 emissions and 20% better rolling resistance than its predecessor, thanks to the functionalised polymer chains.
“While our newly launched ContiPremiumContact 5 builds on the success of its predecessor, delivering exceptional all round braking performance.”
