Hanover, Germany -- The new 'R-Line' version of the Volkswagen Passat CC, designed to meet sporty driving requirements, comes fitted with ContiSportContact 3 tyres incorporating ContiSeal technology.
Introduced as a standard fitment ex works on 16th December 2009, this self-sealing tyre is able to immediately close off punctures up to 5mm in diameter, resolving around 85% of all tyre failures as a result.
Othere commentators in the industry have pointed to the relatively high rolling resistance of the ContiSeal technology, leading to higher fuel consumption.
