Win for the Continental SportContact 7 in the evo 2023 Performance Tyre Test

Continental’s multi-award winning SportContact 7 receives another win in the evo 2023 Performance Tyre Test.

Since its release in late 2021, the SportContact 7 has received multiple awards, ranging from industry recognition to tyre testing wins. The SportContact 7 is the latest generation of the very tried-and-tested, popular, sporty, SportContact family. With the new SportContact generation, Continental offers drivers a high performance, handling-oriented, high-mileage tyre.

John Barker, Contributing Editor of evo said, “The Continental SportContact 7 didn’t put a tread block out of place in evo’s 2023 Performance Tyre Test, delivering a dominant performance across all test disciplines – finishing top in 8 of the 11 test elements.”

“Untouchable in objective tests, and judged best subjectively in wet and dry handling too, the Continental SportContact 7 is pretty much the complete high-performance tyre.

Peter Robb, Marketing Director at Continental said; “Following an impressive collection of awards last year, it is fantastic to see the SportContact 7 continuing with its test success. It is truly an exceptional product, and we are pleased to see it get the recognition it deserves!”

When compared to the previous model, the SportContact 7 features many improvements, including a reduction in wet braking distances by eight percent and six percent better in dry braking. Overall, handling and grip in both wet and dry conditions have benefitted from the latest advancements. During development, Continental focused on improving all performance criteria to combine maximum driving pleasure with maximum safety and sustainability in the field of UUHP tyres.

The SportContact 7 is suitable for sporty vehicles and is available in sizes from 19 to 23 inches.
