Tested against 3 direct mid-range competitors in September-October 2011 by TÜV SÜD Automotive in Garching (Germany) & Mireval (France); size 205/55R16 91V; Golf VI 1.6 TDI & 2.0 GTD; Report 76247020. Depending on the type of road and driving style, rolling resistance contributes to 20% of car fuel consumption (ETRMA).
- 3 meter shorter braking distance on dry roads
- 2.9 meter shorter braking distance in the wet
- 9% lower rolling resistance
Enjoy confident control when it matters most. The EcoControl HP increases road contact under braking force, for dry braking that’s 3 meters shorter than competitors’ tires*.
Braking distances in the wet are up to 2.9 meters shorter,* thanks to a full silica compound and biting edges that cut through the water layer beneath the contact patch. AquaFlow grooves quickly disperse water in heavy rain conditions.
Lower your fuel costs and CO2 emissions. With its high performance construction and EcoTread design, the EcoControl HP needs less energy to roll. In independent tests, the EcoControl HP delivered 9% lower rolling resistance than competitors’ tires.*
Benefit from long lasting performance. Hardwearing compounds and a harmonized poly-rib distribution ensure slow and even wear, giving you more mileage for your money.
The EcoControl HP is the ideal all-rounder for high performance vehicles. It delivers better overall results in wet handling, braking and fuel efficiency when compared to the average performance of competitor tires tested.*
