ContiEcoContact™ 3 is a tire of the ContiEcoContact product line which guarantees safety and efficiency for compact and mid-range cars. Its asymmetrical tread design provides optimal ground contact and therefore shortens the braking distances on wet and dry surfaces. The flexible silica compound allows a strong connection between tire and surface so that a high degree of traction can be guaranteed on wet and dry surfaces.
For compact-class vehicles. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. High mileage and low fuel consumption. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including the models eg. Fiat Grande Punto, Ford Fiesta and VW Polo.
Reduces braking distances on both wet and dry roads by up to one car's length
Extremely good traction, particularly when cornering on wet roads
High mileage and low fuel consumption
High mileage and low fuel consumption. A bionic contour minimises tread pattern deformation when the tyre is rolling, therefore lowering fuel consumption and giving the tyre a longer service life.

Grip edges and incisions in the outside tyre shoulder provide additional traction, especially in wet curves.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
