CONTINENTAL 205/55R16 91V ECO CONTACT 5

The ContiEcoContact 5 was only launched earlier this year, and was designed with tyre labelling firmly in mind. So it’s no surprise to see it perform well in terms of rolling resistance – it finished second only to the remarkable Michelin, with both a long way ahead of the rest. The EcoContact was happiest on dry roads, topping the table in the dry braking assessment and finishing equal second with Vredestein in the dry handling test. It needed a fair bit more lock than its rival in the latter, but felt well planted.

The Conti was off the pace in our wet cornering, braking and handling tests, though – the rear of the car was well controlled in the latter, but the tyre wasn’t as sharp as the Bridgestone. Still, it felt very secure, so its lack of pace on the handling track could be down to poor aquaplaning results.

It was joint sixth for straight aquaplaning, but in the curve, where the water-clearing grooves were distorted, it was last – some way behind the top Goodyear. We expected better from Continental.

Package includes 4x Wheels and 4x Tyres fitted and balanced with installation kit ready to put straight on vehicle.
