August 19, 2014Continental Consumer Champion by Which?
Consumer champion Which? has awarded Continental ‘Best Buy’ status in two popular tyre sizes for the ContiPremiumContact 5 and ContiSportContact 5.
The Which? Car Best Buy endorsements highlight excellent performance, and are commonly used by consumers when looking for the best possible product on the market.
The ContiSportContact 5 took top spot in tyre size 225/45 R17 W/Y, which is popular on car models like the Ford Focus, BMW 3 Series and VW Touran. Which?’s verdict was that:
The Continental is best overall for braking, traction and handling on wet roads, also proving very good on dry tarmac.
The ContiPremiumContact also topped the list in the 185/60 R15H size category (popular with MINI’s. VW Polo’s and Peugeot 208’s), holding off competition from 17 other tyres from different brands. Which?’s verdict:
The Continental is sure-footed on wet roads and low rolling resistance means good fuel economy.
Speaking after Which?’s announcement, Continental brand manager Peter Robb said:
This is another great endorsement for Continental. Both the ContiPremiumContact 5 and ContiSportContact 5 deliver outstanding performance and give motorists greater safety when it is most needed.
