Safety and efficiency for compact and mid-range cars.
The asymmetric tread design provides optimal ground contact and therefore shortens the braking distances on wet and dry surfaces.
The flexible silica compound allows a strong connection between tire and surface so that a high degree of traction can be guaranteed on wet and dry surfaces. Grip edges and incisions in the outside tire shoulder provide additional traction, especially in wet curves.
A bionic contour minimises tread pattern deformation when the tire is rolling, therefore lowering fuel consumption and giving the tire a longer service life.
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.
