For its new Tonale model, Alfa Romeo is counting on the original equipment expertise of Continental by factory-fitting the compact SUV with 17 and 18 inch EcoContact 6 premium tyres. The tyres are designed for exceptionally energy-efficient and noise-optimised driving. The characteristics of the EcoContact 6 tyre are a particularly good fit for the hybrid-drive versions.
For the EcoContact 6, the developers at Continental came up with a special rubber compound that minimises energy absorption while the vehicle is in motion and, in turn, reduces friction and rolling resistance. This improves both wear and energy consumption. In addition to short braking distances, the premium tyre features an asymmetrical groove and sipe geometry that offers exceptional grip on dry and wet roads and excellent cornering stability even at high speeds. The optimised tread design also helps to reduce the tyre’s rolling noise and, in turn, the noise level inside the vehicle.
For more than ten years now, Continental’s developers have been optimising their tyres to achieve ever lower rolling resistance, low rolling noise and long service lives – with zero compromise on safety. As a result, all tyres developed by Continental not only fulfill the specific needs of electric vehicles but also help to reduce combustion engine emissions in the long term.
This tyre line is approved for the Alfa Romeo Tonale in the following sizes in numerous countries including the UK and Ireland:
EcoContact 6, 215/60 R 17 96V
EcoContact 6, 235/50 R 18 97
