German engineered safety for wherever you go.
The EcoContact™ 6 Q provides lower sound emissions thanks to enhanced pattern technologies in blocks, sipes and lateral grooves without compromising other performance aspects.
Big journeys don’t need to cost the earth: Thanks to the best balance between tyre size and component distribution, the EcoContact™ 6 Q and its high-tech silica compound improve rolling resistance, so that you reduce both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Wherever your journey may take you, the EcoContact™ 6 Q will perfectly adapt to the road conditions. The advanced Green Chili™ 2.0 compound reduces tyre wear, so you can go further.
There is wet performance, there is dry performance and then there is the EcoContact™ 6 Q. With its tailor-made pattern, asymmetric rib and sipe geometry, the EcoContact™ 6 Q always keeps you in control whatever the conditions.
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.
