The main concern of many crossover and SUV customers is traction, treadlife and road noise, not always in that order. Continental's CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology is a tire that rates highly in all of these key areas.

The CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology, currently ranked first in our survey results, is Continental's ecologically friendly Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire developed to help crossovers, sport utility vehicles and light-duty pickup trucks perform on the highway and in mild off-road conditions. It's designed to enhance driving pleasure, save fuel and maintain grip when braking on wet surfaces, while providing long wear and all-season traction, even in light snow.

Continental uses an all-season tread compound featuring their Tg-F Polymers and +Silane additives to improve treadwear, fuel efficiency and traction on slippery roads. The compound is molded into a symmetric tread design with notched outboard shoulders, independent intermediate tread blocks and continuous center ribs to blend on-road steering response and straight-line stability with reduced noise and enhanced ride comfort. Four circumferential grooves enhance wet traction while Continental’s Traction Grooves (featuring ridges in the outboard grooves) promote three-dimensional snow-to-snow traction.
