The Continental PremiumContact 7 - a summer tyre that delivers exceptional traction and enhanced fuel efficiency - is multi-award winning, having been named “Tyre of the Year” at the Tyre Technology International Awards 2023 and earning the top spot in the Tyre Reviews 2023 Summer Tyre Test and the Auto Express Best Touring Tyre Test.
Nearly one in three cars produced in Europe is fitted with Continental tyres, including models by Audi, Volkswagen and BMW, making it one of the most popular brands for Original Equipment partnerships. And evidence of Continental’s excellent reputation doesn’t end there because its tyres regularly receive industry-wide recognition.
At the 2018 Auto Express Tyre Test Awards, Continental triumphed in three categories - all-season, summer and winter - with the AllSeasonContact, PremiumContact 6 and WinterContact TS 860 tyres, respectively. Following this success, in 2022, it was named ‘Tire Manufacturer of the Year’ at the Tire Technology International (TTI) Awards for Innovation and Excellence.
Continental tyres are popular because they balance performance, comfort and safety while using the latest innovations in tyre manufacturing. They also sit at the cheaper end of the premium bracket, beating rivals Pirelli and Dunlop, which is great news if you’re looking for top-level tyres that won’t break the bank.
