The ContiPremiumContact 2 received the highest overall performance score in the two tyre sizes featured in this month’s (April’s) report. In the 205/55R16W review, Which? said, “The ContiPremiumContact 2 offers first-rate handling on dry roads, good wet and dry braking and good resistance to aquaplaning in bends and on straight roads.” Testers commented that the 185/60R14 H size offers “excellent handling on dry roads, good wet and dry braking and decent wet grip in bends and on straight roads.” In total the tyre, designed for medium-sized family cars, has now been given four “Best Buy” gongs in 205/55R16V (the UK’s most popular size), 205/55R16W, 185/60R14H and 195/65R15V.

Continental’s tyre for larger sporty cars, the ContiSportContact 3 received the second highest overall performance score in the 225/45R17Y category – the UK’s biggest selling high performance tyre size – scoring five stars in dry handling and braking. The ContiEcoContact 3, specially developed for smaller cars and superminis, was awarded three Which? Best Buys in the 155/70R13T, 165/70R14T and 175/65R14T categories.

Which? tested a total of 119 tyres across nine tyre sizes. They tested for six different criteria including dry and wet braking, handling, wet grip and noise.

Scott Benbow, product manager at Continental, declared himself pleased at the results: “The Continental car tyre range has really shown its pedigree. All our products are developed with safety in mind without compromising on other performance aspects. We want motorists, whatever type of car they drive, to have complete confidence when driving in both wet and dry conditions. A total of 8 best buys for Continental across the tests is testimony to the overall high performance of our tyres. The Which? Best Buy recommendations are a real honour and it’s great to be recognised in these independent tests by a leading consumer magazine.” (Tyres & Accessories/Staffordshire, U.K.)
