German engineered performance.
Knowing you can always trust in your tyres gives you confidence. The new SportContact™ 7 was engineered to give you the confident feeling of knowing you can push the limits further and further, so that you can simply enjoy driving pleasure at the highest stage.
Since the driving conditions can change within seconds, you should always rely on a tyre that knows how to react. Due to our adaptive pattern, you experience constantly safe driving behaviour on wet and dry surfaces – even at higher speeds.
Enjoy next-level driving pleasure longer than ever before*. The perfectly balanced interaction of the stiff low-void pattern and the soft BlackChili enables top-notch performance while increasing the mileage of your tyres significantly.
*In comparison to the predecessor.
As our first tyre that is tailor-made for different vehicle classes and weights, the SportContact™ 7 gives you the typical SportContact™ feeling, whenever you start the engine.

+ New sport tire with best handling on dry roads
+ Good aquaplaning reserves
+ Short braking distances
+ Safe driving behavior on wet roads
- Limited driving comfort
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.
