Continental PremiumContact 5
- Comfort and safety
- Low rolling resistance
- 3D edges for shorter braking
Puts a stop to risks. In all conditions
The ContiPremiumContact™ 5 - The perfect all-rounder which combines comfort and safety at the highest stage.
The ContiPremiumContact™ 5 is the new allround premium tire for vehicles in the compact, mid-size and full-size category. The allrounder boasts extremely short braking distances on dry and wet roads, low rolling resistance, safe driving properties and comfortable handling characteristics. To realize all of this, Continental's development engineers imbued the ContiPremiumContact™ 5 with a host of improvements. The optimized 3D edges are what make for shorter braking distances than in the case of the predecessor model. Adapted from the ContiSportContact™ 5, the macro-blocks guarantee safe handling and better transmission of cornering forces. A new carcass – adapted this time from the ContiEcoContact™ 5 – enhances comfort and reduces the ContiPremiumContact™ 5's rolling resistance.
Also unbeatable in temperature curves
Short braking distances on dry and wet surfaces. Newly developed 3-D edges prevent the tread blocks from curling and deforming while braking, providing even pressure distribution. Additionally, block edges penetrate the water film on the road in wet conditions, similar to a windscreen wiper. This results in even shorter stopping distances on dry and wet surfaces in particular.
Perfect grip and optimal handling in every driving situation
Computer-optimised macro blocks maximise the contact area of the tyre when strong lateral forces are present and when braking or changing lanes at high speed. In addition, they provide considerably improved tread stability – for perfect handling and outstanding grip, even in extreme driving situations.Comfortable driving and improved rolling resistance. The combination of a flexibly designed tyre shoulder and reinforced bead area ensures optimum flexibility with increased stability of the side wall. This results in noticeably more comfortable driving with perfect handling and improved rolling resistance.
For mid-sized and executive class vehicles. The perfect all-round tyre, matching performance with safety. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Perfect grip, optimal handling and short braking distances in every driving situation. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including the models eg. Audi A3 and Volkswagen Golf VII.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
