VW approves Conti tires for Golf 7, CC and Beetle models
ERJ staff report (BC)
Hanover – Volkswagen has approved three premium summer tire models from Continental to be fitted at the factory. The Golf 7 will be fitted with the 15- and 16-inch ContiEcoContact 5 and ContiPremiumContact 5, the CC will be fitted with the 17-inch ContiSportContact 5 and ContiEcoContact 5, and the Beetle will also be fitted with the 20-inch ContiSportContact 5 tire in the future.
Depending on the design, the tires are developed for low fuel consumption, comfortable driving, or sporty handling. For the CC, Volkswagen is opting for tires with the ContiSeal technology, which seals minor damage to the tire by itself, with a view to uninterrupted driving.
