Continental's PureContact with EcoPlus Technology vs. ContiProContact

About ten years ago, Continental released the original ContiProContact. This tire competed well with the top Grand Touring All-Season tires of that day, including the Michelin MXV4 and Bridgestone's line of Turanza touring tires. These tires met the needs of drivers of a variety of vehicles from family sedans to crossovers. The Continental ContiProContact was also selected as Original Equipment on many luxury cars, such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series. 

Over the years, the ContiProContact began to fall behind newer tires with more advanced technology such as the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus and Michelin Primacy MXV4. For a comparison on these two newer designs, read "Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus Rises to the Top of the Grand Touring All-Season Tire Category." In response to the rapidly changing and competitive Grand Touring All-Season market, Continental introduced the PureContact with EcoPlus Technology.

The PureContact with EcoPlus Technology is quite a bit better than its predecessor. Advancements that Continental have made with this new design have paid off, as the tire is currently ranked number one in our customer survey results. It competes very well against the best tires in its category, while selling at a lower price in most sizes. This makes the tire a great value and outstanding choice for drivers looking for a blend of ride quality, all-season traction and long wear, while maintaining good levels of handling and steering response.

How does the PureContact compare with the ProContact on LRR? They both claim EcoPlus, but which one is more fuel efficient?
