The new PremiumContact 6 is said to provide high levels of braking performance, thanks to a new synthetic amorphous silica compound, and achieves an ‘A’ rating for wet grip on the EU label.

Continental’s chemists and engineers have also broken new ground to attain the specified marked improvement in mileage, rolling resistance and comfort. The solution was to combine an abrasion-resistant polymer compound with a supple tread pattern. As a result, the new PremiumContact 6 offers a 15% improvement in mileage compared with its predecessor, and at the same time interior and exterior tire/road noise is reduced by as much as 10%.

Around 70 prototype tires are already undergoing approval testing with car manufacturers around the world.
