Test Results

The UltraContact NXT has won the prestigious "Gold" award in the "Automotive & Transport / Cars Accessories" category at the International Design Awards (IDA) for its special sidewall design.

What the jury said

In 2023, Continental launched the most sustainable passenger tire, the UltraContact NXT, with up to 65 percent renewable, recycled and mass balance certified materials. The unique position of this product is also reflected in its sidewall design. The designers created an abstracted leaf to symbolize the forward-looking message. For this they used elaborate 3D textures, which have never been realized before in tires. For the tread, "form follows function" applies. The advanced arrangement of longitudinal and lateral grooves delivers top values in all safety criteria and enables high mileage.
