Thanks to its reduced rolling resistance, the Conti.eContact has received the top mark for fuel efficiency. In addition, it boasts improved grip and stable handling.
The tire is able to optimally diffuse and drain water away, leading to shorter braking distances and better handling in the wet, as well as better wet performance even at higher speeds.
Thanks to the tire's unique design, air turbulence is easily avoided and less energy is lost when deflecting or rebounding. All this leads to reduced fuel consumption and optimized rolling resistance.
The Conti.eContact is able to absorb vibrations inside the tire, meaning that the interior noise is significantly reduced.
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.
