"Extremely sporty and uncompromising on safety" is how the manufacturer describes the Continental ContiSportContact 3. The model has been designed to perform very well in any conditions and to ensure safety during everyday driving. The designers have worked hard to ensure outstanding steering precision, which means that the car maintains its grip on the road, even at high speeds, and remains stable during sudden manoeuvres.
The tyre's asymmetric tread pattern helps disperse water and prevents the car from skidding. Meanwhile, innovative tread ribs ensure steering precision and high performance levels on dry roads, whilst also helping to reduce braking distances, making driving on Continental ContiSportContact 3 tyres exceptionally safe. Steering accuracy in any weather can also be attributed to the curved edges of the tread ribs, which stabilise the tyre and reduce deformation as a result of the impact of lateral forces on the tyre. This model is the perfect solution for drivers looking for a reliable driving experience and excellent performance specifications, regardless of the road conditions and whatever the weather. The tyre offers a quiet and comfortable driving experience thanks to the use of a unique compound in its manufacture, which helps muffle tyre noise. This compound also has reduced weight – the designers have made use of this feature and the Continental ContiSportContact 3 therefore guarantees lower rolling resistance, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.
