Continental PremiumContact 6
The Continental PremiumContact 6 has been developed to satisfy two demands made by discerning drivers and bridge the gap between a comfortable and sporty tyre.
To that end, it supersedes the popular Continental PremiumContact 5 and the SportContact 5. It combines their features to provide a brand new tyre which unifies comfort and efficiency with a sporty performance.
In the new PremiumContact 6, the German tyre manufacturer has set out to fulfil the ever-increasing requirements in terms of ride quality, precise steering response, maximum safety and environmental properties in a single product.
Continental’s tyre development engineers have come up with new compounds. An innovative tread pattern that borrows from Continental’s high-tech SportContact 6 tyre. Also, a supple tyre geometry offers high ride quality.
As a result, the new tyre also delivers improvements of up to 15 percent in handling performance, rolling resistance, mileage and ride quality compared to the PremiumContact 5.
The new PremiumContact 6 also achieves the top “A” rating for wet grip on its EU Tyre Label.
Continental PremiumContact 6 Features
- New synthetic amorphous silica compound for short braking distances on wet roads
- Extended driving convenience updated by the comfort-optimised performance footprint
- “Advanced macro-block design “employs long shoulder blocks that support one another, providing additional grip
