Hyundai Relies on Continental’s OE Expertise for its Tucson

The Hyundai Motor Group relies on Continental’s original equipment expertise for its Tucson. The South Korean car manufacturer has given Continental three approvals for its SUV. The Tucson runs worldwide from the factory on either energy-saving EcoContact 6 or comfort-optimised PremiumContact 6 tyres. For the Asia-Pacific region, Hyundai has also approved the CrossContact LX Sport, which is designed for light off-road driving.

Save energy on the road with the EcoContact 6

The special rubber compound of the EcoContact 6 minimises energy absorption while driving and reduces friction and rolling resistance. This means lower energy consumption for cars with combustion engines and greater range for electric vehicles. In addition to short braking distances, the premium tyre also offers reliable grip on dry and wet roads and very good cornering stability even at high speeds. The optimised tread design also reduces the tyre’s rolling noise.

Comfortable and safe driving with the PremiumContact 6

The PremiumContact 6 is designed for safe and comfortable driving. The special rubber compound in the tread ensures very good safety and wet braking properties. The optimised tyre design also offers high cornering stability. The special design featuring circumferential grooves allows for a rapid response in handling and steering precision on dry and wet roads.

Additional approval for Asia-Pacific: The CrossContact LX Sport

For the Asia-Pacific region, Hyundai also offers the Tucson with the premium CrossContact LX Sport tyre in size 18-inch. This offers short braking distances on dry and wet roads and effective drive both on and off the road. The CrossContaxt LX Sport also has a reinforced side wall that protects against damage, for example by stone chips. The adapted tyre profile also ensures low rolling resistance and therefore good fuel efficiency. The uniform sipe arrangement on the tread reduces rolling noise for a high level of noise comfort.

These tyre lines and sizes are approved for the Hyundai Tucson in numerous countries:

EcoContact 6, 215/65 R17 103V XL
