Continental Sport Contact 5 SUV XL
|Tyre:||Continental Sport Contact 5 SUV XL|
The tyres will have a rating for fuel efficiency from A – G; A-rated tyres being the most fuel efficient and G-rated tyres being the least fuel efficient.
Choosing more fuel efficient tyres not only lowers the cost of driving as you use less fuel, but also reduces Carbon Dioxide emissions which in turn helps the environment.
By choosing to fit A-rated tyres over G-rated tyres, you will save an average of 7.5% in fuel a year. (Please note D ratings are not used).
The second area rated by the new tyre label is wet braking distances e.g. how long it takes a tyre to stop when braking in wet weather. Tyres are rated from A – F (D and G ratings are not used).
Choosing A-rated tyres over F-rated tyres could reduce wet braking distances by up to 18 metres.
The final rating is external noise emissions. This is not the noise heard by the driver, but external noise made by the tyre.
This is measured in decibels (dB) and is indicated by one, two or three black waves on the label; with one wave being the quietest to three waves being the loudest. So the more black waves, the louder the tyre.
The ContiSportContact 5 is the latest tyre in Continental’s sport family for both Cars and SUV’s (pure on-road applications). The ContiSportContact 5 utilises Black Chilli Technology to offer extremely short braking distances whilst still maintaining high mileage and fuel economy. The macro-blocks on the outer shoulder help ensure the contact area is maximised so that the tyre adapts to the road surface and maintains high grip and safety during cornering. To differentiate tyres which are primarily used on SUV/ 4x4 vehicles there is a SUV logo on the sidewall.
