Drivers of non-RS variants also get their money's worth: drivers can look forward to an SUV that's adequately powerful as a diesel as well as a petrol thanks to ABT Sportsline. The power boost is provided by the ABT Engine Control (AEC) unit. The upgrade gives the 2.0 TSI, for example, 216 HP (159 kW) and up to 360 Nm, turning it into a true alpha. But also the 2.0 TDI doesn't have to hide behind the petrol:
The 2.0 TDI with 190 HP (140 kW) or 150 HP (110 kW) in the production model can also order a boost. We get up to 220 HP (162 kW) or 180 HP (132 kW) from the diesel engine, increasing the maximum torque to 440 or 380 Nm.
