CONTINENTAL195/55R16 91H 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.

Great! Review by Sal

The ride comfort is very good and the only potential criticism is slightly higher road noise than I'm used to but they're still far from the worst in this respect. (Posted on 25/09/2013)

Very good for eco tyres Review by Matty

In dry conditions, you can't tell you've got an eco tyre under you. They perform just as well as the best performance tyres I've used and in the wet they provide surprising grip, although not quite as planted as in the dry (like all tyres I suppose). (Posted on 25/09/2013)

Excellent all rounders, these grip well and have nice feel to them in all conditions, and my fuel consumption has edged up from 60mpg to 62mpg since changing from Avon ZV3 to these. Beginning to show wear on the front but so good on all other parameters I'm going for these again next. (Posted on 25/09/2013)

Very good on any surface, a huge improvement over the tyres my car had before. The best part is the ultra low rolling resistance, the car can go further without any acceleration. (Posted on 25/09/2013)
