utility in the city
There’s nothing quite like escaping the city for a hard-earned break, hitting the open road, or maybe even leaving the tarmac behind. That’s the dream, but of course everyday reality looks a little different. You also need a car that will get you to work on time, is as convenient for the school run as it is for your weekly shopping trip, and that you can park, even in tight city spaces.
The car that combines the best of both worlds is known by many different names: crossover, compact, mid-size, small or mini SUV. If you want a car that is compact enough for city living, driving and parking, paired with the flexibility for spontaneous road trips and weekend activities, these are the SUV models to look for.
For a crossover SUV, you’ll want tires that are as versatile as your vehicle. For a car that performs as well in the city as it does in the great outdoors, you need wheels that can deal with a wide range of driving conditions and surfaces. Since the compact SUV segment is so large and popular, with a wide range of applications, Continental offers an extensive selection of tires to suit your car. Which ones you choose depends a lot on your personal needs and priorities.
