Mercedes C-Class To Come Factory-Fitted with Continental Tires

Published On 23-May-2022By Anand Priyadarshi

The PremiumContact 6 (18″) and EcoContact 6 (17″) have both been granted original equipment approval for the C-Class.

Mercedes-Benz has chosen Continental tire technology for the C-Class, too. With the PremiumContact 6 and EcoContact 6, the automobile manufacturer is factory-fitting its current model series with not one but two premium tire models.

The PremiumContact 6 (18″) and EcoContact 6 (17″) have both been granted original equipment approval. The PremiumContact 6 – winner in the 2022 ADAC summer tire test (size tested: 215/60 R 16 99V) – offers exceptional safety and comfort, said the tyremaker in a release.

The special rubber compound in the tread, which is crucial for the tire’s grip, ensures outstanding safety and wet braking performance. The tire design ensures high cornering stability. The special design featuring circumferential grooves allows for a rapid response in terms of handling and steering precision on wet and dry road, it further added.

The EcoContact 6 is characterized by not only its outstanding energy efficiency and mileage but also its superior handling and brake performance. The tread profile constantly adapts to the road surface, ensuring a longer tire life, says Continental.

The specially developed rubber compound minimizes friction when the tire is in contact with the road surface, which means that the tire absorbs less energy and, in turn, rolling resistance is reduced.

The EcoContact 6 recently showed off its energy efficiency as part of the summer tire test organized by German trade magazine Auto Zeitung (issue 6/22), in which it beat nine other tires from European, Asian and US manufacturers in the rolling resistance test.

The following products and sizes are approved ex works for the Mercedes C-Class in numerous markets:
