Mercedes C-Class Factory-Fitted with Continental’s PremiumContact 6 and EcoContact 6 Tires

The EcoContact 6 is characterized by not only its outstanding energy efficiency and mileage but also its superior handling and brake performance. The tread profile constantly adapts to the road surface, ensuring a longer tire life. The specially developed rubber compound minimizes friction when the tire is in contact with the road surface, which means that the tire absorbs less energy and, in turn, rolling resistance is reduced. The EcoContact 6 recently showed off its energy efficiency as part of the summer tire test organized by German trade magazine Auto Zeitung (issue 6/22), in which it beat nine other tires from European, Asian and US manufacturers in the rolling resistance test.

In many countries of the world, Continental also offers a wide range of summer, winter and all-season tires – including test winners such as the AllSeasonContact – as part of its tire replacement business.

Automobile manufacturers all over the world rely in Continental as a leading tire supplier. In Europe, almost one in three cars rolls off the assembly line fitted with Continental tires.

The following products and sizes are approved ex works for the Mercedes C-Class in numerous markets:
