Continental CrossContact LX20 Tire Review & Rating

Built to provide touring all-season performance on the highway, the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology is the company’s latest tire for drivers of SUV’s, pickups and crossovers.

An eco-friendly tread compound utilizes specially developed Tg-F polymers and +Silane additives to enhance traction, provide for better overall treadwear and gain a little extra fuel mileage. The tire’s continuous center rib and independent tread blocks add better grip on dry surfaces, while also increasing steering response and feel, an area frequently mentioned as a real plus from other driver reviews.

CrossContact LX20 from Continental Tire

Continental has added four circumferential grooves to a symmetrical tread design, as well as its exclusive Traction Grooves to improve traction on both wet and snow covered roads. In addition, these grooves are strategically placed around the tread to aid in reducing road noise and increase overall ride quality.

Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide for added strength and durability. They also enhance treadlife, which Continental backs up with a 70,000 mile tread guarantee. Available in sizes from 16-18 inches, a rim protector is also included to prevent accidental damage from curbs to your expensive wheels.

Pros

  • Excellent dry, wet and snow traction  
  • Responsive steering and solid in the corners  
  • Smooth and quiet ride  
  • 70,000 mile tread guarantee  

Cons

  • A few drivers have reported having vibration problems  

Overall Thoughts

The LX20 has been a pleasant surprise in how well it performs. Traction on all types of road conditions, including snow, has been excellent. Better still, if you find yourself wanting to go off-road into light terrain, this model is up to the task.

Steering control and feel are good as well, although perhaps not as precise as Pirelli’s Scorpion Verde All Season Plus. You’ll find this tire corners very well, and the ride is smooth and comfortable.

A few drivers have mentioned having vibrations further into the tread life, while the majority of others have never had any issues. Continental backs up the tire with a 70,000 mile warranty, which is among the best in class.

Overall, we really like this model and recommend it as one of the top tires in this class. If you’re looking for a touring all-season tire that delivers a smooth, quiet ride to go with dependable traction and handling, you won’t be disappointed with the LX20.
