One tyre, four seasons ENHANCED BY GERMAN TECHNOLOGY
Innovating year-round safety and efficiency.
Fully controlled and balanced throughout the year. Based on German technology and the entire automotive competence Continental offers premium tyres for control in every driving situation.
Innovating year-round safety and efficiency with the AllSeasonContact. Fits perfectly to a broad range of vehicles, e.g from Opel Adam, Ford Fiesta, Audi A3, Mercedes A-class and others.
Impressive grip on snowy and wet winter roads due to adaptive all-season compound. With its Winter Performance Resins and a high silica fill rate in the Traction Silica Compound, the newAllSeasonContact™ always stays flexible. This adaptability ensures excellent performance on snow-covered and wet winter roads.
Good braking performance on dry and wet summer roads enabled by flexible all-season tread design. As a trustful companion, the new AllSeasonContact™ convinces in any summer condition. Responsible for this is the combination of open shoulders for high aquaplaning performance and stiff pattern with minimum sipes for better handling and braking on dry roads.
Best-in-class rolling resistance performance achieved through energy-optimised all-season construction. The impressive decrease of the rolling resistance based on optimised sidewall geometry and optimal pattern depth leads to a significant reduction of fuel consumption – without compromising on safety aspects.
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.

21.07.2020fromJimjam Very predictable and safe tyres Quiet and good ride comfort. Good all rounder
06.06.2020fromRas Very good all year round tyre.
There are certainly better specialist tyres around. One for dry, one for wet weather, one for snow and ice, one for mud, one for summer, one for winter. Sadly I don't have a pit crew that can change tyres each time the road condition changes. So, a AllSeason AllWeather tyres is a compromise and the Continental AllSeasonContact is the best compromise I could find.
Used the same tyres on my previous car.
It's the one for me.
13.05.2020fromMichael Only got these on the front (driven) wheels at the moment as the car was bought with newish tyres on the back but worn fronts. The Continentals seem a good choice for an SUV type and are fine on both country roads and motorways. Not had really bad weather to test them in that as yet. When the cheap back tyres the previous owner fitted drop to bits, they will be replaced with Continentals. Generally they make excellent tyres - also have theirs on my BMW.
