Continental ContiEcoContact 3 tyre tests:
in size 175/65 R14;
Continental ContiEcoContact 3 is a premium summer tyre designed for passenger city cars and compact models. Its precise control and directional stability are supported by rigid circumferential tread ribs, which also provide smooth rolling. The tread itself is asymmetric, which means it consists of two independent parts. Each of them is responsible for different tasks, making the tyre work well in various conditions.
Special incisions on the outer shoulder of the tyre improve traction characteristics, especially on wet roads and curves, making your drive a comfortable and safe experience. Its excellent water evacuation is achieved by the optimal arrangement of the circumferential channels in the centre of the tread and diagonal incisions in the inner bar of the tyre. Continental ContiEcoContact 3 is made of a modern, lightweight blend that reduces rolling resistance. These features translate into reduced fuel consumption which makes driving more economical and ecological. In addition, the blend provides durability and a longer service life, as well as resistance to mechanical damage. The designers have also ensured even tyre pressure on the road surface, making the model wear slowly and evenly, guaranteeing full performance throughout the tyre's life. The tyre is particularly suited to drivers who appreciate high performance and driving safety as well as the environmental friendliness of the products.
