The Continental Eco Contact 3 are premium summer touring tyres designed to be fitted into compact and medium-size cars. They can best be described using four buzzwords; 'compact', 'efficient', 'durable' and 'economical'.
Cars fitted with the tyres have a reduced braking distance on both dry and wet roads. This is due to the asymmetric tread design which provides optimal ground contact. In addition to this design, the tyre contains a flexible silica compound which allows good cohesion between the road surface and the tyre which in turn guarantees a high degree of traction. To avoid skidding on wet roads, the tyre manufacturer includes grip edges and incisions for additional traction.
A distinct feature of the Continental Eco Contact 3 that contributes to high mileage and economic fuel consumption is the bionic contour. These contours minimise deformation of tread patterns whenever the wheels are rolling. As a result, the car rides smoothly and consumes less fuel. The dry and wet grips are estimated at 80% and 79% respectfully.
