Continental Eco Contact 5 Reviews

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Fabia 1.4TDi (185-60-14-T)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1,200 average miles
Excellent tyres. Very good on any surface, a huge improvement over the Matador tyres my car had before. The best part is the ultra low rolling resistance, the car can go further without any acceleration. I managed to break my old record of 4.1 l/100 with an impressive 3.3. Great tyres, I will definitely buy Continentals next time.

Given 91% (breakdown) while driving a CitroŽn C3 (185-60-15-H)
Driving on a combination of roads for 16,000 spirited miles
Excellent all rounders, these grip well and have nice feel to them in all conditions, and my fuel consumption has edged up from 60mpg to 62mpg since changing from Avon ZV3 to these. Beginning to show wear on the front but so good on all other parameters I'm going for these again next.

i bought these tyres after reading numerous reviews on it.

initial feel of the tyres were good, but after around 2000km, the tyres became noise, the performance also detiorated. could it be luck? but i didnt enjoy my tyres. swap them for Yokohama C drive.

I was disappointed when I found out that my new car was going to have eco tyres as standard having used the original Conti Eco Contacts around 8 years ago and finding them dangerous in the wet. However, my plans to swap the eco tyres were dropped after only a few miles.

In dry conditions, you can't tell you've got an eco tyre under you. They perform just as well as the best performance tyres I've used and in the wet they provide surprising grip, although not quite as planted as in the dry (like all tyres I suppose).

The ride comfort is very good and the only potential criticism is slightly higher road noise than I'm used to but they're still far from the worst in this respect.

I can't comment on wear having only done 500 miles so far. Suffice to say, they still look like new!

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a Jaguar S type 3.0 (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
Had these fitted to replace P6000s on my Jaguar S Type. What a difference!
Full marks all round. So quiet on most road surfaces and a real feeling of grip.
Precise handling and total confidence.

Brilliant, so glad I waited for them to become available.
