German engineered safety for any situation.
The crystal silica composition enables superior braking performance especially in terms of wet road conditions. While keeping the safety performance at the maximum level, the mileage improved significantly – a solved conflict in tyre development.
The wear-optimised polymer blend provides an outstanding improvement of more than 15% in mileage performance. In addition, the smooth pattern stiffness improves driving comfort and mileage, and lowers the exterior noise.
The advanced macro-block design ensures maximum control and cornering stability. Furthermore, the asymmetric rib geometry provides a better grip under the effect of lateral forces.
Our PremiumContactTM 6 has come top of the table in the Tyre Reviews’ 2020 Ultimate Summer tyre test. Focusing on tyres for everyday driving using the bestselling size in the market (205/55R16). Our tyre demonstrated its strength in different weather conditions. Commended for its excellent grip and sporty handling in the dry whilst excelling in shorter stopping distances in both the wet and dry.

Our PremiumContactTM 6 has won the AutoExpress Tyre Test 2018. Auto Express said, “The PremiumContact™ 6 was the best tyre to drive in both wet and dry, there was a liveliness to its handling that no rival could match and few could get close to.
In the wet, the PremiumContact™ 6 was in a league of its own, the sharpness was there on the wet track with a strong front end pulling you through turns - where rivals just pushed wide. The tyres’ consistent performance across a range of testing led towards another fantastic win for Continental and the PremiumContact™ range”
Tyres with high wet grip performance (A or B graded) have shorter braking distances on wet roads and are, therefore, safer in the rain. As with fuel efficiency, the D grade isn’t used and there are no plans to use G.
Tyres account for up to 20% of your vehicle’s fuel consumption so, if you want to get more miles per tank of fuel, you should choose tyres with a high fuel efficiency rating. You will also lower your CO2 emissions. It comes down to rolling resistance i.e. the energy lost when a tyre is moving. The lower the rolling resistance, the less energy is lost and the lower your fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The difference between an A-rated tyre and a G-rated tyre could be as much as 6 litres per 625 miles.
This is the external noise made by the tyre and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tyres.
