Volkswagen Tiguan Is Tweaked with ABT`s Power Kit

ABT Sportsline is a dedicated Audi aftermarket shop, with hundreds of models to receive special treatments, but in the recent years, the tuner has also turned its attention towards other carmakers, such as Volkswagen or Mercedes-Benz, with standout styling and performance kits to be added to their model lineups.

The Volkswagen`s new generation Tiguan has also had the chance of getting its moment of glory, the SUV receiving some power upgrades from ABT Sportsline.

Besides the slight changes at the body styling, including the choice of 18-, 19-, 21- or 21-inch ABT wheels, the car has also received new suspension system which lowers the car`s ride height by 20 mm, making it extremely aggressive and increasing its stance.

The Volkswagen Tiguan packs the company`s latest petrol burners and diesels, with just a few of them receiving some power upgrades.

The most impressive power boost was carried out to the car`s 2.0-liter diesel engine, which is now delivering two power configurations: 180 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque, as well as 251 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque.

On the other hand, the 2.0-liter TSI petrol mill has been also tweaked with 216 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque.The new performances comes with ECU remapping, new turbos and valves, and much more. Unfortunately, the tuner has not released the official numbers from 0 to 100 km/h.

Even if some of you might think that the mild power kits are not the best for this Tiguan, it is worth the trouble of getting it tuned-up in case you own a model as well.
