Tyre Test Highlights

2015 Auto Bild Top 18 Summer Tyre Test - 1st of 18 tyres

  • Positive - Best premium tyre without faults. Good steering precision, good margin against aquaplaning, short wet and dry braking, best wear.
  • Negative - Price.

2015 Test World Summer Tyre Test - 1st of 15 tyres

  • Positive - Equally good grip and handling in all conditions.
  • Negative - High rolling resistance
  • Overall - The Continental Premium Contact 5 provides good grip in all conditions. In the wet handling is very stable with no surprises. High resistance to aquaplaning and short braking distance. In the dry they behave confidently, quickly reacting to input and maintaining traction in emergency manoeuvres. Very quiet, but have too high a rolling resistance.

2015 European Tyre Test 185/60R14 - 1st of 16 tyres

  • Positive - Very balanced tyre with top marks in the wet, especially good on dry roads

Top Continental Premium Contact 5 Review

Given 70% (breakdown) while driving a Dacia Logan (185/65 R15 H) on mostly country roads for 15,000 average miles
Great grip on dry roads, acceptable car grips in the wet but with a negative part about wear.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Mk7 TSI (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 12,000 easy going miles
Golf 1.4tsi DSG 2013, tyres are originals, f/rear swap at 10k miles, just under 6mm tread left at 12'600 miles but I am easy driver, 48mpg overall since new. Will buy these again.

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Nissan Livina (195/65 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 65 spirited miles
Car is 7 seater multi-purpose vehicle driven in a tropical country (sunny this morning, rainy on the afternoon). Noticed a dramatic improvement on Dry Grip from the replaced tire yokohama aspec A300 which tends to spin on inclined parking egress. Wet Grip also improved, no break-away even at 100 km/h. Not willing to push to the limit though. Comfort is better, less road noise even on old asphalts.

Only complain is the soft sidewalls, notice a bit of body roll. My solution was to put a little more air (well within the max tire pressure, and within my car's specs). Cannot say about treadwear, tire only saw 3000 km as of this writing with minimal to no observable wear yet. I drive 60km total every day for 5 days a week on a paved road.
