Continental Eco Contact 5 Reviews (newest first) - Page 1

Given 44% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota AYGO (165/60 R15 H) on mostly town for 13,000 easy going miles
Good on dry, mediocre on wet. Fitted to my wife's Toyota Aygo (2015 model) they were starting to show cracks on the sides after just 3 years and 21.000 km. This size of tyres under this very light car is made for city trips and low mileage, so should you be able to expect the Continentals to last far more than they've done. Granted, the tread is somewhere around 4.5mm now, so that's not bad, but that means nothing when cracks all around are showing very heavily after just 3 years of Dutch (or UK) weather and I have to replace them. Thinking about replacing them with ADAC's 2018 test winner, the Falken Sincera SN832 Ecorun (with wear the only against it seems) or Toyota's own choice, the Yokohama BluEarth ES32.

Given 56% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Megane (205/50 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 4,000 easy going miles
These came fitted to my new car. After 5 months and little over 6.000 Km they have proven to be a great disapointment. Dry grip is OK, but wet grip is very, very bad. Every small poodle of water make then start aquaplaning. One time, when entering an underground car park with the tires wet, at less than 30kph the back lost grip and I almost spun arround.
Even when new, they are very noisy.
I will definetly never again buy these tires. Horrible!

Volkswagen Passat 2.0TDI [150PS] DSG (225/45 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
Only managed to get 15k miles out of from set on 2016 2.0 TDI DSG Passat se mixture of town motorway and rural driving. When these tyres got down to 3.5mm they started to get noisy also wet grip went off really quickly. Would not expect this from a primium branded tyre.
Will not buy again, especially at the price

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Corolla (185/65 R14) on a combination of roads for 100,000 average miles
I gave this tyre high score because as it's design to a modern era cars (like 2010ish +/-) on my Corolla from 1999 this tyre was feeling like a high performance tyre. Before this Conti I had Falken ze912 and the Conti was a massive upgrade on every aspect.
I'm doing a lot of driving, the tyre maybe not very quite but not on a problem level, had a very good fuel consumption (around 16 km on average for Liter or like about 55-60 miles per gallon), very good dry and wet grip.
Highly recommended tyre.

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a Nissan Qashqai (215/60 R17 H) on mostly country roads for 20,000 spirited miles
These tyres came with my new 2016 Qashqai Diesel which would have a heavy front end. The tyres performed perfectly in wet and dry and never once felt them slipping. Braking performance was very good in all conditions. They were driven hard at times on country roads and always felt secure. They are now down to the min treadwear at about 30k km (20k miles) and need replacing. The grip and efficiency is still great at the min thread. I rotated the tyres at about 15k so all 4 tyres have worn evenly so-as i cas replace 4 at a time. As they are a softer compound for better grip they didn't last as long as I'd like. At €140 a corner to replace I wouldn't buy again only because of the high price, as I have had plenty of other tyres as good as these but a lot cheaper..
You won't go wrong with tyres if you want to pay the money...
