company and manufacturer of premium tyres, Continental, is bringing its range
of Generation 6 tyres for passenger vehicles to India. The UltraContact UC6 and
ComfortContact CC6 range of tyres are designed to cope with challenging road
conditions found across the country.
to a company press release, Continental Tires has developed the Generation 6
products by conducting extensive tests to deliver premium product quality.
UltraContact UC6 and ComfortContact CC6 have been designed based on an in-depth
understanding of the needs and driving habits of the Indian consumer. Both the
range of tyres are aimed to provide higher safety, low noise levels, higher
mileage, robust sidewalls, improved fuel efficiency, and greater comfort.
d’Gama Rose, Head of Tyres Business, Continental India, said, “Continental has
a rich legacy as a premium tyre manufacturer. Our flagship range, the
UltraContact UC6, and the ComfortContact CC6 aretrusted by our customers
worldwide for its high performance, safety, better mileage, and comfort
features. With the entry of Generation 6 tyres in India, our offering in the
passenger vehicle segment is well established. It gives our customers the
choice to upgrade to the premium product in the market”.
tyres will be produced at Continental’s Modipuram plant.
is perfect for consumers looking for the “easy” choice, who want assured
quality in every aspect. It is specially designed for full control on wet roads
and extreme short braking distances in both wet as well as dry road conditions.
All this without compromising on comfort, noise level, mileage, or
Higher safety on wet roads
added safety, aqua channel surface sipes quickly direct the water film from the
tread pattern as they contact the road. On wet roads, the centre of the tyre is
at the highest risk of aquaplaning. To curtail this risk, a specially developed
aqua drainage eelements are positioned to drain water into the tread grooves
Extreme short braking distances in dry and
chamfered angle of the Diamond Edge in the pattern maximizes the contact area
of the pattern to distribute the braking forces more evenly while braking. Without
this chamfer, the tread block distorts and loses some of its contact with the
road. In wet conditions, the Diamond Edge acts as a wiper that clears the water
film away from the tread blocks for short braking distances.
Adaptive superb grip level and long mileage
new adaptive Diamond Blend Compound consists of two polymer types. The short
grip-polymers are activated when the vehicle is driving through corners or while
braking. This energy is transformed into heat to enable high grip and short
braking distances. The long mileage-polymers are entangled and, therefore, strongly
connected, which ensures a high mileage performance.
UC6 tires are available for rims with diameters from 14 to 17 inches, covering
a wide range of larger passenger car vehicle models.
CC6 tyre provides superior low noise level, higher comfort, and lower rolling
resistance helps in achieving optimal fuel efficiency. The tire also offers
better tread-life due to secure, interlocking molecular connections that resist
wearing, thus improving mileage significantly compared to the previous
generation of Comfort Contact range. The CC6 tyres are available for rims with
diameters of 13 to 15inches.
achieve a superior low noise level, Continental CC6 operates on three
revolutionary technologies - Harmonic Comfort Chambers, 0 dB-Eaters, and
Lower noise, more comfortable frequencies
Harmonic Comfort Chambers are specially designed noise-canceling chambers
positioned on the inner shoulder of the tyre pattern. Unpleasant noise
generated between the road and tyre is effectively canceled out as airwaves
migrate in and out of the chambers. This prevents noise emission towards
passengers, resulting in a quieter ride.
dB-Eaters are designed to split and diffuse noise waves for lower road noise.
To ensure a quieter ride, they break up noise waves traveling in the tread
grooves to reduce the sound-level measured in decibels (dB).
Smooth, relaxed ride
CC6 Whisper Compound is a smoother rolling tread compound that adapts better to
the roughness of the road surface for superior comfort. The compound absorbs
tire vibrations to diffuse road noise. It dampens micro bumps on the road,
offering a smoother driving experience.
