Continental has received a number of OE approvals from Volkswagen to supply the Golf VII , CC, and Beetle.
For the Golf VII, Volkswagen has approved both 15 and 16-inch ContiEcoContact 5 and ContiPremiumContact 5 tyres.
The CC will be fitted with the 17-inch ContiSportContact 5 and ContiEcoContact 5 tyres. For this model, Volkswagen is consistently opting for tyres with the ContiSeal technology, which seals minor damage to the tyre by itself, thereby enabling uninterrupted driving.
The Beetle will also be fitted with the 20-inch ContiSportContact 5 tyre in the future.
With the ContiSportContact 5, engineers have developed a tyre which offers the best in braking when pushed to the limit. With shorter braking distances in all weather conditions, excellent road grip and safety when cornering, the ContiSportContact 5 won a coveted award from the UK’s best-selling weekly motoring magazine, Auto Express last year, taking top spot in the ultimate tyre test.
