Two power mods included
Abt Sportsline has revealed its first tuning program for the seventh generation of the Golf.
After finalizing work on the sixth-gen Golf with the GTI Last Edition, Abt is ready to showcase its first aftermarket package for the 2013 Golf. They have prepared a power boost for the 1.4 TSI which increases output from 122 HP (90 kW) to 160 HP (118 kW). The 2.0 TDI can also be improved from 150 HP (110 kW) to 170 HP (125 kW).
It will arrive in Geneva not only with these two power kits, but also with a new set of 19-inch alloys shod in 225/35 R19 tires. At the back there will be a quad exhaust setup, along with a custom sports suspension and several styling changes such as a rear diffuser, side skirts and splitter.
ABT Sportsline has introduced its upgrade program for the seventh-gen Golf yesterday in Geneva.
The new Golf is certainly a desirable model among tuners just like all six previous generations. ABT first started working on the 1.2-liter TFSI engine and increased its output from 86 hp (64 kW) to 105 hp (78 kW). The 1.4-liter TFSI with its 140 hp (104 kW) wasn't left untouched as it was tweaked to produce 165 hp (123 kW).
The tuner focused on the 1.6 TDI and lifted its power from 105 hp (78 kW) to 125 hp (93 kW). The 2.0-liter TDI can develop 180 hp (134 kW), up from the standard 150 hp (111 kW), while the 2.0 TDI with its stock 184 hp (137 kW) can deliver 210 hp (156 kW).
ABT's styling kit brings a new front grille, front spoiler, headlight covers side skirts and mirror caps. The rear receives a four-tailpipe setup and a redesigned apron. Several 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels are available upon request, along with a suspension spring package.
