365 days of efficient safety.
The innovative tread compound with the new generation of silica efficiently reduces the fuel consumption through low rolling resistance, making the tire a profitable investment for the future.
The high number of sipes maximises the edge length in order to interlock with wet roads and thus improves wet braking performance. Additionally, the V-shaped drainage and wide lateral grooves successfully work against aquaplaning.
Especially in wintry conditions, an increased sipe edge length provides outstanding braking performance. Combined with the step in shoulder groove, the VanContact™ 4Season ensures excellent grip and handling on snowy roads.
The VanContact™ 4Season is a solid companion with improved performance when it comes to short braking, handling and stability on dry roads.
The German magazine promobil has published in issue 10/2020 the All Season Tire Test 2020. The test size was 225/70 R15C 116/114 R, carried out on an Fiat Ducato.
The test was conducted by promobil at the following proving grounds: Snow testing Ulrichen/Switzerland, Wet and dry testing Contidrom/Germany.
Rating for the VanContact™ 4Season: Test Winner
About our VanContact™ 4Season:
+ Very good traction, cornering and braking on snow
+ Easy controllable in the wet
+ Very good grip in dry corners
+ Kindly quiet
+ Best in Rolling Resistance
- Few grip in dry braking
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.
