Sitting higher in the product hierarchy is the UltraContact UC6 SUV. If you drive a SUV such as the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V or a Mazda CX-5, then tyre is right up your alley.

Catering to inherently taller and heavier vehicles, the UC6 SUV’s compound has a feature called the Double Tie-bar for higher stability and stiffness. This helps give the UC6 SUV excellent grip, handling and braking characteristics for SUVs.

Especially in the current rainy season, having a tyre that is optimised for both wet and dry conditions is imperative, and the UC6 SUV is just the tyre for such an occasion. Innovations such as Aqua Channel and Aqua Drainage enhances its ability to cut through standing water and significantly reduce the chances of aquaplaning.

Moving on to something that’s sportier in nature, the MaxContact MC6 model is designed to give driving afficionados superior steering feedback, sporty handling, and excellent traction all, without compromising daily-driving characteristics. This model would be most suited to cars like the Mazda 3, Toyota 86 or even a VW Golf GTI.

Starting with the MC6’s special adaptive polymer compound, grip levels are increased both in dry and wet conditions. Increased stiffness is derived from features like Stabiliser Bars, Chevron Grip Elements, and Stable Rib Structure. All these features combine to make the MC6 stable and predictable during higher speeds and hard-cornering.

Despite that, the MC6 still has a high degree of everyday civility in its behaviour. This is courtesy of its Xtreme-Force construction, a technology which gives the MC6 a soft edge at lower speeds, but reduces tyre flex at higher speeds. Combine this with Noise Breaker 2.0, the MC6 is really the best of both worlds. The MC6 comes in wheel sizes from 16 to 20-inches.

SportContact SC6

Finally, the flagship of the Continental tyre range. The SportContact 6 represents the best of Continental’s tyre-making expertise, expressed through this Ultra High Performance summer tyre. If you own machines like the BMW M4, Porsche 911 or Ferrari 488, this is one of the most accomplished tyres for your money.

The SC6 showcases innovations like Black Chilli, which has a Micro Flexible Compound that adapts to deliver better acceleration and braking performance, in wet or dry surfaces. Not only that, the SC6 incorporates Force Vectoring technology in its tread pattern development. This feature uses a Macro Block Design to improve the tyre’s stiffness and improves steering precision.

A UHP tyre must also be stable and predictable at high speeds. This is where Aralon350 comes in. This technology uses a strong Hybrid Cap Ply to progressively control tyre expansion as speeds go higher. As the name suggest, this enables the SC6 to be safe and stable up to 350 km/h.

In case you didn’t know, the SportContact 6 is the factory-fit tyre for the FK8 Honda Civic Type R. Accolades do not come higher than this. The SportContact 6 is available for wheel sizes from 19 to 23-inches.
