Vehicles like the Maserati Grecale place high demands on tires with their high curb weight, highperformance, and rapid acceleration. With the CrossContact series, Continental's developers have thereforedesigned tires that offer short braking distances on dry and wet roads and effective drive. A reinforcedsidewall protects against damage, for example from stone chips. This also makes the tires ideal for drivingon light terrain. The adapted tread pattern also ensures low rolling resistance. The even sipe arrangement onthe tread reduces rolling noise.

EcoContact 6 for energy-saving driving – hybrid variantsbenefit in particular
The special rubber compound of the EcoContact 6 reduces energy absorption during driving and lowersfriction and rolling resistance. This means lower energy consumption in cars with internal combustionengines and longer ranges in electric vehicles. In addition to short braking distances, the premium tire alsooffers reliable grip on dry and wet roads and very good cornering stability even at high speeds. Theoptimized tread design also reduces the tires rolling noise.
