  • Enhanced mileage due to new Green Chili 2.0 compound
  • Optimised grip and handling experience

Notable Features

Continental EcoContact 6 is a wear-resistant summer tire developed for passenger cars of various classes. This 2019 model is designed to optimize the fuel consumption by the vehicle, increase the precision of handling response, and ensure short braking distances both in the wet and in the dry. EcoContact 6 In the model range of this German brand, the Continental EcoContact 6 will replace the Continental EcoContact 5, improving upon a number of characteristics of its predecessor. For example, the company states that the new tire will have a 20% longer tread life, a 15% stronger resistance to wear, as well as more precise handling response and more efficient dry and wet braking performance. Continental EcoContact 5 / EcoContact 6 Such an upgrade led to the fact that by the moment it was first mentioned in the industry media (October 2018), the new EcoContact 6 model was already chosen by 12 carmakers as the OE tire for their subcompact and midsize car models. Tyre performance The sixth-generation EcoContact tire got an improved tread compound with a better balanced distribution of chemical components, which led to stronger ties in the polymer chains, reducing the deformation of the tire during the driving. This, in turn, ensured a dramatic decrease in rolling resistance, which directly affects the fuel consumption by the vehicle. The new generation of Green Chili The new tread compound also includes innovative additions that help the contact patch better adapt to road inequalities. This ensures a more efficient transmission of braking force, at the same time strengthening the Continental Eco Contact 6 on the road, which leads to a smaller number of the turns of the wheel, contributing to a longer tread life.

These two tread compound innovations were combined into one technology called GreenChilli 2.0. Tread pattern Continental Eco Contact 6 close-up Depending on the size, the ContiEcoContact 6 model may have a three, four, or five-rib pattern. Thanks to this customized solution, the tires can ensure excellent grip and handling precision in any summer weather conditions, up to the physical thresholds. Maximum fuel efficiency thanks to improved component geometry and efficient silica distribution The optimized tread design of the Conti Eco Contact 6 with ribs and circumferential grooves verified with millimeter precision, effectively combats hydroplaning and stabilizes handling response when driving in the rain. The lateral water-dispelling grooves, speeding up the evacuation of water in combination of lamellas with chamfered edges ensure a more efficient drainage of the contact patch, improving wet grip. Enhanced mileage due to the new Green Chili 2.0 compound In order to further increase the driving safety ensured by this tire on dry pavement, the creators of the Continental EcoContact 6 proceeded from the company’s experience in designing sports car tires. The resulting asymmetric tread pattern with rounded edges adds stability to individual tread elements while cornering, thus ensuring more precise steering response and better grip. Maximum fuel efficiency thanks to improved component geometry and efficient silica distribution The Continental EcoContact 6 summer tire is a high-technology product, designed to meet the highest requirements of driving safety, handling precision, long tread life, and low fuel consumption.

The tread depth is ridiculously shallow. When I collected my new Fiat Panda Cross the tread depth was barely 6mm deep...and that was on brand new tyres on a brand new car.
Comments
As well as the shallow tread depth already mentioned, I would argue that this tyre is not really suited for the role of O/E tyre for fitment to vehicles destined for northern European markets as our road and air temperatures are far too low from late-autumn through to early-spring. 
It's quite clearly marketed as a 'premium touring summer tyre', for which I'm sure it is eminently suited, but it isn't one for all-year around use.

Treadwear
The tread depth is ridiculously shallow. When I collected my new Fiat Panda Cross the tread depth was barely 6mm deep...and that was on brand new tyres on a brand new car.
Comments
As well as the shallow tread depth already mentioned, I would argue that this tyre is not really suited for the role of O/E tyre for fitment to vehicles destined for northern European markets as our road and air temperatures are far too low from late-autumn through to early-spring. 
It's quite clearly marketed as a 'premium touring summer tyre', for which I'm sure it is eminently suited, but it isn't one for all-year around use.

    Compared to the previous incarnations of this Tyre the apparent lack of tread gives it a 'half worn'  look. The almost flush Continental Logo and unattractive swirling 'decoration' only add to that impression. 
    Yes!,............ i'm sure it performs well but it just looks horrible.
