Continental Tyres has added a new tyre to its product portfolio, welcoming the ContiSportContactTM 5 into Australia.

Equally suitable for sporty cars and SUVs with sporty driving characteristics, the ContiSportContactTM 5 reflects considerable improvements when compared to its predecessors.

Offering shorter braking distances in all weather conditions, excellent road grip, improved overall handling and enhanced safety when cornering, the ContiSportContact 5 is available in sizes from 17 inch upwards for cars and 18 inch upwards for SUVs.

Whilst developing the ContiSportContactTM 5, engineers focused on sports performance for high safety reserves, especially when braking on wet roads and in addition, optimised rolling resistance and higher mileage.

The advancements seen in the ContiSportContactTM 5 are due in part to the employment of BlackChilli technology - a specially developed compound technology involving an innovative type of racing grade carbon black, which ensures a speedy warm-up process resulting in greater stability.

When braking, the tyre has a high natural frequency and the short-chain polymers in the BlackChilli compound of the ContiSportContactTM 5 react to this braking frequency and provide optimal energy absorption.  The resulting heat shortens the braking distance on wet and dry roads.

The BlackChilli compound has also contributed to a significant decrease in rolling resistance in the ContiSportContactTM 5, through utilising the different vibrations of the tyre.

The ContiSportContactTM 5 also delivers excellent road grip thanks to its macro-block design on the outside shoulder, providing a larger contact area that is able to adapt optimally to the road surface, and as a result offer more safety when cornering.

The new ContiSportContactTM 5 - control has never been sportier.

Always On
In today's vehicles, countless pieces of information are exchanged among the various electronic components, and selected information has to be presented to the driver.

The demand for comprehensive information management in a vehicle is expressed by Continental's dedication to supporting the driver in being "Always On".

Continental technologies and integrated systems control and optimize the complex flow of information inside and outside a vehicle. The information obtained through the various sensors, control units, antennae, and operating devices needs to be delivered in a way that is reasonable and useful to the driver.

By linking the driver, the passengers and the vehicle with infrastructure, other vehicles and mobile devices, Continental achieves both keeping the driver informed about relevant driving data and ensuring entertainment and information for all occupants.Information exchange and information processes with HMI-friendly products like head-up displays, voice-recognition and text-to-speech technologies, tachographs, cockpit modules, multimedia or navigation systems ensure safe, efficient and entertaining driving.
