28th March 2013

Continental has been awarded the Best Buy status by consumer champion Which? for its ContiPremiumContact 5 and ContiSportContact 5 tyres.

The Best Buy endorsements are handed out to the highest quality products across a variety of different tyre sizes, grading them based on their performance.

Continental’s ContiSportContact 5 won for the size 225/45 R17 W/Y, which is used on vehicles including the BMW Series 3, Ford Focus and Volkswagen Touran, with an overall score of 69 per cent.

“The Continental is best overall for braking, traction and handling on wet roads, also proving very good on dry tarmac,” Which? said.

Meanwhile, the ContiPremiumContact 5 won for its supermini size, the 185/60 R15H, which is used on the Peugeout 208, Volkswagen Polo and Mini. It also won with a score of 69 per cent, beating off a total of 17 other tyres, with Which? praising it for its ability on wet roads and low rolling resistance.

“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,” said Peter Robb, brand manager for Continental, commenting on the triumph.
