In its summer tyre test 2008 (03/08), Stiftung Warentest testet various summer tyres of the size 175/65 R14 T.
Rating for the ContiEcoContactTM 3: "Good" (2nd place)
Evaluation: " Well balanced performance on dry and wet roads."
The asymmetric tread design provides optimal ground contact and therefore shortens the braking distances on wet and dry surfaces.
The flexible silica compound allows a strong connection between tire and surface so that a high degree of traction can be guaranteed on wet and dry surfaces. Grip edges and incisions in the outside tire shoulder provide additional traction, especially in wet curves.
A bionic contour minimises tread pattern deformation when the tyre is rolling, therefore lowering fuel consumption and giving the tire a longer service life.
