WinterContact™ TS 870 and WinterContact™ TS 870 P recognised by Auto Express and Tyre Reviews in respective winter tyre tests

Double test success for our WinterContact™ TS 870 and WinterContact™ TS 870 P 

The latest products to join our successful WinterContact™ range see double success as our WinterContact™ TS 870 came second in the Auto Express winter tyre test and the WinterContact™ TS 870 P came joint first place in the Tyre Reviews winter tyre test. 

Steve Fowler, editor-in-chief of Auto Express, said: “With a trio of category wins in our winter tyre test, the Continental WinterContact™ TS 870 was a standout performer. No other tyre beat it when it comes to snow traction, straight aquaplaning or curved aquaplaning, while it dropped just one tenth of a percent in our snow braking category. It's the tyre to have when snow is on the ground”.​

Jonathan Benson of Tyre Reviews commented, “The brand new Continental WinterContact™ TS 870 P was the king of consistency. The tyre steadily scored well across all fifteen categories, demonstrating its engineering prowess and highlighting why it is a solid choice for the colder months.”

AllSeasonContact™ is awarded ‘Best All-Season Tyre’ in the Auto Express Product Awards 2021

Auto Express awards Continental ‘Best All-Season Tyre’ in the Product Awards 2021 for the AllSeasonContact™  

Following our success in the Auto Express 2020 all-season tyre test, our AllSeasonContact™ has also claimed the title of ‘Best All-Season Tyre’ in the Auto Express Product Awards 2021.

Steve Fowler, editor-in-chief of Auto Express, commented: “When it comes to choosing an all-seasons tyre, the Continental AllSeasonContact™ is the standout performer. In our most recent tests, it generated good results in the wet, but was even more impressive in the snow, while low resistance can help reduce drivers' fuel bills, too. An excellent tyre, and the Auto Express all-season tyre of the year”.  ​

PremiumContact6™ Tyre Test Review

PremiumContact™ 6

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.

Our PremiumContactTM 6 continues to be a winner!  In the Tyre Reviews’ 2020, it has come top of the table in the 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.  Watch our win for yourself: Click here
