Since, its introduction 16 years ago, Volkswagen Touareg has been a constant in ABT Sportline tuning program. Hence, it is not surprising to know that German based tuning company has some new upgrades for the latest generation. ABT Sports line is the first tuner to work their magic on this posh SUV. The major change in the Volkswagen Touareg is the addition of ABT engine control unit to 3.0 liter TDI engine that claims to deliver optimum power delivery. The output has been increased from 282hp and 600Nm of torque to 325hp and 650Nm of torque.
However, we must point out that this is just the beginning as Volkswagen will eventually introduce V8 diesel engine to the Touareg. With the help of twin-turbo setup, it would offer an impressive 421hp and 900Nm of torque. It would be enough for any power hungry consumers. Volkswagen is also planning to introduce hybrid version which is currently under work and it would offer around 367hp and decent torque. After increasing the power, ABT concentrated on wheels of Volkswagen Touareg.
ABT Sportsline is offering different size of rims for Volkswagen Touareg that ranges between 20 to 22 inches. They are dubbed as DR, ER-C, and FR-C. The alloy wheels have different design and one pictured here comes with 22 inches of wheels. They have opted for glossy black finish but buyers can also opt for matte black look too. The interior of Volkswagen Touareg remains the same, but by opening the doors of the SUV one could find new entrance lights. The lights project ABT logo on the asphalt whenever door is opened.
