Advanced technology and driver safety were the designers' two main aims when producing this tyre. The Continental ContiSportContact 5 has been designed for premium passenger cars and SUVs. The model performs exceptionally well both on city roads and on longer journeys. Its massive, flexible blocks on the outside shoulder and its innovative central ribbing ensure excellent grip and stability on corners. The model also guarantees excellent grip and driving stability thanks to the increased contact surface between the tyre and the road.
The Continental ContiSportContact 5 also offers safe braking performance thanks to its Black Chilli technology, which has improved tyre stability and significantly reduced braking distances compared with models from previous generations. The special resins added to the rubber compound give the tyre excellent grip on any surface, including during dynamic manoeuvres. The tread of the Continental ContiSportContact 5 is noted for its unique construction, made up of two layers: the outer "cap” and the inner "base”. The outer layer is responsible for good grip on wet surfaces, while the inner layer reduces rolling resistance. The model is ideal for drivers who favour a sporty and dynamic style of driving, whatever the weather.
The Continental ContiSportContact 5 was ranked 1st for size 225/45 R17 summer tyres organised by ADAC in 2016 .
