BMW Trusts in Continental’s OE Expertise
The SportContact 7 for sporty driving, the energy-efficient EcoContact 6 Q summer tyre and the WinterContact TS 860 S as the winter tyre for the cold months have been approved for the entire series – both for combustion vehicles and for the all-electric i5 version.
A high-performance tire for sporty driving: that is the SportContact 7. With its excellent handling properties and short braking distances, it has impressed in numerous independent national and international tire tests. Continental focused on perfection in all performance criteria during the tyre’s development in order to combine maximum driving pleasure with the highest safety. Compared to the predecessor model, the SportContact 7 offers reduced wet braking distances by eight percent. During dry braking, it shortens the braking distance by six per cent. The tyre’s mileage was extended by 17 per cent. Wet and dry handling and grip also benefit from the new development of this tyre.
Continental developed the EcoContact 6 Q for exceptionally energy-efficient driving regardless of the drive type. This property has been made possible by the tire’s special rubber compound. It reduces energy absorption while driving and thus both friction and rolling resistance. In addition, Continental‘s developers have optimised the tread of the tyre to reduce rolling noise. Besides short braking distances, the EcoContact 6 Q also offers reliable grip on dry and wet roads and very good cornering stability even at high speeds.
Continental offers the WinterContact TS 860 S, which is available from BMW dealerships and tyre retailers, as a winter tire for the wet and cold months of the year. This winter tyre model ensures precise handling on dry and wet roads in cold temperatures. It also delivers solid grip on snowy ground. The tire ensures reliable braking performance and therefore a high level of safety on wintry roads.
