VW Caddy to be Equipped OE Tyres from Continental
The AllSeasonContact all-season tyre and the EcoContact 6 summer tyre have been approved. Both tyre models are particularly optimised for rolling resistance and have received the highest rating A in the EU tyre label owing to their particularly high energy efficiency. Continental is one of the first tyre manufacturers to succeed in developing an all-season tyre that has obtained an EU tyre label rating of A for energy efficiency.
This is a particular challenge, as Continental’s AllSeasonContact tyre has to provide optimum grip and maximum safety in both summer and winter time. Therefore, the AllSeasonContact combines decisive elements of Continental’s premium summer and winter tyres. In a recent all-season tyre test conducted by the German automotive magazine Auto Bild, the AllSeasonContact tyre received an “exemplary” rating for its all-round capabilities and good price-performance ratio.
In addition, Continental is supplying the EcoContact 6 for the Caddy, which is characterised by its energy efficiency, high mileage, braking performance as well as good handling. The EcoContact 6 offers reliable grip on dry and wet roads as well as very good cornering stability, even at high speeds. With the latest compound technologies, it features excellent deformation behavior. The EcoContact 6 recently demonstrated its energy efficiency in the Auto Zeitung summer tyre test. It won out against nine other products from European, Asian and American manufacturers in the rolling resistance test and was awarded the “Fuel-economy recommendation” award by the editorial team.
Continental also offers the WinterContact TS 870 for the VW Caddy at tyre dealers. With its impressive handling characteristics in all weather conditions, short braking distances, steering precision and good safety reserves, the winter tyre was most recently named test winner in the major winter tyre test by Auto Bild.
