With a Help from ABT Sportsline, VW Tiguan Gets Even Better and Faster

Compact SUVs like the ever popular VW Tiguan are more trendy than ever before. Since its launch in 2007, this car has been a real winner.

“This SUV embodies fun and adventures and is thus fully in line with our portfolio”, says Hans-Jürgen Abt, CEO of the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group. And it isn’t only the fresh design elements that leave such a good impression: ABT Sportsline will also provide customised upratings of this particularly dynamic SUV.

Following the slogan “it’s good to know you are better”, the Bavarian company presents highperformance engines of the first water. While the specs provide for a support of the Tiguan’s characteristics, in plain language this means that the car is supposed to be characterised by maximum dependability, a comfortable ride wherever you may go and much agility.

And the ABT engineers have really given their all: The successful 2.0-TDI variants are now showing 140 hp/103 kW (serial version: 110 hp/81 kW), 170 hp/125 kW (serial version: 140 hp/103 kW) or, at max, 195 hp/143 kW (serial version: 170 hp/125 kW). The economical 1.4l turbo petrol engines have, depending upon their original performance, 160 hp/118 kW, 180 hp/132 kW or even as much as 210 hp/154 kW. And these being engines tuned by ABT Sportsline, it goes without saying that there is no increase in their fuel consumption whatsoever. The most sporty ABT Tiguan is the one powered by the 2.0-TSI engine. Depending upon the serial performance, it reaches 230 hp/169 kW or – in the most sporty variant – even 260 hp or 191 kW. All upratings have been tested in practice and on the modern roller test bench.

Needless to say that you can always tell that this “Bavarian” SUV is better than others by simply looking at it. “We see to an assertive and elegant presence on the road”, says Hans-Jürgen Abt. The striking front grille, the door strip attachments, the rear skirt set with the striking exhaust pipes and the rear spoiler all make the car stand out and underline its harmonious design. Consequently, ABT recommends the ER-C or DR wheels, which will fit the Tiguan perfectly, but also its other alloy wheels like the CR. All these wheels are also available in combination with high-performance tires.

The Tiguan is a member of the ABT Sportsline SUV family, and as with the Touareg and the Q3, Q5 and Q7 drivers will get a very sporty and versatile automobile.
