Continental’s PremiumContact 2 tyre has been awarded a commendation by leading motoring magazine, Auto Express. The consumer publication put the UK’s top brands to the test to find the safest, most fuel efficient tyres that deliver great performance all year round. Auto Express said; “An even performance across all disciplines from the German maker. It was among the best in the wet, particularly curved aquaplaning, and managed unlike most rain masters, to match that in the dry and in rolling resistance tests”. All tyres underwent tests to assess their capabilities in aquaplaning, cornering and braking on both wet and dry surfaces. Auto Express also monitored in-car noise and fuel economy to draw their conclusions.


Peter Robb, product manager at Continental said; “We are delighted to have been commended by Auto Express. The ContiPremiumContact 2 is a popular choice with car manufacturers as an original equipment fitting to their latest generation cars. This test result is proof of its outstanding performance. ”

The versatile tyre is approved for the Mercedes-Benz C Class, the Audi A5, the Fiat Bravo, and Toyota Auris among many others. There is also a self supporting runflat version that has just been approved for the BMW 1 and 3 series.

The ContiPremiumContact 2 was a “best buy” recommendation for Which?’s 205/55 R16 V test in the leading magazines February issue. And this is not the first time that Continental has been commended in the Auto Express product honours after 2006 success with the ContiEcoContact 3 for supermini and city cars.
