While developing our premium tyres, we consider every safety and performance aspect. The result: top ratings for Continental tyres around the world. Our multi‐award-winning tyres are regulary tested by independent experts and journalists around the world. Since 2007, our products have received the highest recommendations in around 80 per cent of all tests. And we aim to at least maintain this exceptional performance.
These are just a handful of our test results:
Continental has started the summer season with a coveted award from the UK's no1 weekly selling car magazine, Auto Express, scooping ‘Best Summer Tyre’ with the Continental ContiSportContact 5.
Auto Express said; “Rarely do we see such a dominant performance in our tests, but it was clear as soon as we started compiling the results that Continental was going to retain its 17-inch title. Four wins and three runner-up spots left little doubt and gave the ContiSportContact 5 a bigger margin of victory than in the close-run 2013 test.”
The summer tyre test pitted the Continental ContiSportContact 5 against ten competitor tyres in size 225/45R17. The award recognises our summer specialist across a broad spectrum, taking top spot in dry handling, dry braking, wet handling and wet braking.
Auto Express (UK) have published the Annual Summer Tyre Test 2015. The test size was 225/45 R17.
The test was conducted by Auto Express in cooperation with Continental in Hannover, Germany.
This is the second year in a row Continental have won the ultimate summer tyre test by Auto Express.
