Golf, Beetle, and CC

The Volkswagen range is rich with a large number of different models. The category to be fitted with Continental products includes compacts, saloons and the premium city cars.  The Golf needs no introduction: the star of the C-segment continues to make record sales, beating the Renault Megane, Ford Focus and Peugeot 308 etc. hands down. From now on the seventh generation Golf will be fitted with 15 or 16 inch (depending on the version) ContiEcoContact 5 and ContiPremiumContact 5 tyres as original equipment, for the basic models. The ContiEcoContact 5 is also to be fitted to the Volkswagen CC, as is the ContiSportContact 5, also in the 17 inch dimension. Finally, the Beetle will also be fitted with 20-inch ContiSportContact 5, on the sports inspired models.


Different philosophies

Depending on the tyre chosen (ContiEcoContact, ContiSportContact, ContiPremiumContact), the performance obtained will clearly be different and each matches a specific need: low consumption and low rolling resistance for the basic models, optimal driving comfort for the more luxurious models and the best dynamic performance for the sports models. It should be noted that these tyres will be manufactured in Continental’s European factories, with the exception of the ContiSportContact 5 for the Beetle, sold in the United States and produced in Mount Vernon.
