ABT released a preview of their refinement package for the new gen Volkswagen Touareg. And unlike other tuners who for no good reason tend to lower the SUVs and ruin their off-road capabilities, ABT seems to have jacked it up a bit further and used some huge 22-inch wheels which give it a very awesome look!

The tuner has also tweaked the design of the car by using a new front grille, a roof spoiler and four-tailpipes integrated into a new apron at the back. And that’s about it, they’ve stayed away from vulgar body kits, and that’s a very good thing.

It was sad when VW announced the new Touareg won’t get the V10 diesel or V8 petrol engines, but ABT has an upgrade package for the exiting powertrains, including 3.0 TDI V6 and 4.2 liter TDI V8 which offers more power without compromise on efficiency. Here’s the details:

Engine:                3.0 TDI, 2967 ccm, V6
Performance tuning:            ABT POWER
Performance:                282 PS/207 kW (standard: 240 PS/177 kW)

Engine:                3.0 TDI, 2967 ccm, V6
Performance tuning:            ABT POWER S
Performance:                310 PS/228 kW (standard: 240 PS/177 kW)

Engine:                4.2 TDI, 4134 ccm, V8
Performance tuning:            ABT POWER
Performance:                385 PS/283 kW (standard: 340 PS/250 kW)
