New Škoda Superb comes off the production line 
on Continental tires

11/05/2015
ContiEcoContact™ 5
  • Czech brand’s flagship model equipped with ContiEcoContact 5 and ContiPremiumContact 5

  • Eco tire combines short braking distances with low rolling resistance; ContiPremiumContact 5 offers alternative for superior handling

The new Škoda Superb is now heading for the showrooms, fitted out with Continental tires. The Czech car brand has approved the ContiEcoContact 5 and ContiPremiumContact 5 as original equipment for its flagship model. Both tires in size 215/55 R 17 V are now being supplied to the Škoda plant in Kvasiny, where the Superb is built. Škoda opted for the Continental tires because they combine low rolling resistance with a safe and comfortable ride and high mileage. The approvals from Škoda also make for efficient logistics, because the ContiEcoContact 5 tires for the Superb are manufactured at the Continental tire plant in Otrokovice, just 180 km or so from the car plant.

The ContiEcoContact 5 summer tire is designed for low rolling resistance and at the same time offers short braking distances on wet and dry roads. The ContiPremiumContact 5 also offers short braking distances on wet and dry roads combined with precision handling – not least at higher speeds. The availability of two tires with different capabilities for the same vehicle segment means that the car manufacturer and the consumer have the option of focusing more strongly on fuel-efficiency or handling when they choose their tires to suit their individual needs.
