New VW Multivan Factory-Fitted with Continental Tyres
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is factory-fitting its new Multivan with Continental’s AllSeasonContact tyres in 16″ and 17″ fitments.
This premium all-season tyre is designed to cope with any weather, all year round. Thanks to a special tyre compound containing a high proportion of silica and special performance resins. So, the AllSeasonContact offers excellent traction and braking performance. The braking forces are transmitted to the road via the tyres with exceptional efficiency. Importantly, resulting in shorter braking distances.
Particularly on icy and snow-covered roads during the winter. The AllSeasonContact also offers outstanding braking performances. Especially, on wet and dry roads in the summer. This is all thanks to the special geometry of the shoulder groove. Of course, which ensures improved water drainage. The shoulder groove is also designed to provide additional stability. Importantly, during cornering as well as exceptional lateral aquaplaning performance.
The AllSeasonContact is characterised by its high energy efficiency, rated with EU tyre label “A” making it a leader in its segment.
The significantly improved rolling resistance was achieved through an optimal balance. Of course, between compound, geometry and sidewall thickness. Lower rolling resistance helps to reduce fuel consumption and, in turn, CO2 emissions.
Different automotive magazines have recently praised Continental’s AllSeasonContact for its versatility. The all–round specialist recently won, for example, the all-year test conducted by Gute Fahrt (edition 9/22), confirming the success it enjoyed in the tests conducted by Auto Zeitung (19/21) and Auto Bild (40/21).
The following products and sizes are factory-approved for the new VW Multivan in numerous markets, including the UK:
AllSeasonContact, 215/65 R16 102H XL
AllSeasonContact, 235/55 R17 103H XL
