The tested tire size was 205/55 R16 91/94 V, test vehicle was a VW Golf 7/8.
This test is a special test with 32 participating products. The evaluation consists of 2 parts:
Part 1: Wet braking and dry braking test: selection of the best 14 products (finalists)
Part 2: Complete test only of the finalists including wear performance and price.
For the first time Auto Bild is publishing the weight loss of the tire in g/1000 km for all finalists. This criteria is not part of the evaluation.
The test was conducted by Auto Bild on following proving grounds:
IFV Institute for road wear test (Harz, Germany)

About our AllSeasonContact™:
+ Proper performance and good grip in corners on snow

+ High Aquaplaning safety
+ Spontaneous and stable in lane change maneuver dry
- Longer braking distance in wet and dry
- Slight oversteering at load changes in fast corners
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tire will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to class E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing for each subsequent class through to E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tire, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A to C.
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tires only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tires.
