Ultra-high performance from Continental CONTINENTAL ECO CONTACT 5 XL


The Continental Eco Contact 5 tyres are premium summer tyres suited for mid-sized and compact class vehicles. The tyres offer outstanding handling capabilities on both wet and dry road surfaces. You can be assured of excellent value for money with these tyres. This is due to the optimised rolling resistance, which results in reduced fuel consumption.

Increased responsiveness of braking: The tread pattern of the tyre ensures a reduced braking distance on wet roads. This has been improved to provide motorists with excellent safety standards, ensuring a positive and comfortable driving experience.
Improved handling characteristics: The tyres exhibit exceptional handling characteristics due to the innovative tread design. This reduces sidewall deformation in area above the tyre rim. As a result, there is more precise transmission of lateral forces to the road, resulting in better control on the car.
Stable driving in wet conditions: The tyres offer exceptional safety without compromising on performance and handling. The excellent grip qualities ensure you can feel comfortable when driving, no matter how poor the conditions.
Extended tyre longevity: The tread pattern exhibits extra thin sipes, which reduce tread deformation and minimise energy loss. This leads to reduced rolling resistance which not only will extend the tyre life; it will also ensure lower fuel consumption.

An evolution of the reinforced tyre for heavier, higher performance vehicles, allowing a lower profile tyre with extra load carrying capability, these tyre give more rigidity and enhanced road holding. Extra load tyres have a higher inflation pressure and often have XL moulded on the sidewall.
