An ice-scraper effect offers outstanding braking performance on wintry roads.
The tire provides handling characteristics similar to a car on snow, wet and dry roads and during low temperature.
Thanks to the lateral water drainage, the tire provides excellent protection from aquaplaning in wet and slushy conditions.
the German magazine promobil has published a Winter Tire Test in issue 11/2014.
The tested tire size was 225/75 R16 C, the test vehicle a Fiat Ducato Maxi.
Quality rating for the Vanco™ Winter 2: "1st place – Very good" (Test winner)
About our Continental VancoWinter 2 (produced in Otrokovice plant)
+ best in wet criteria
+ best in dry braking
+ best in comfort
- average in snow braking and lateral grip on snow
- slight weakness in noise
Secure grip in wet conditions is crucial for safe driving. Performance is graded into classes, A to G (although D and G are not currently used). The stopping distance between a class A tire and a class F tire can be as much as 18 metres.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with each subsequent class through to G increasing fuel consumption by between 0.42 and 0.56 mpg for a car which does 36 mpg.
This is the external noise made by the tire and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tires.
