Volkswagen's Tiguan SUV may not be designed for performance, but that hasn't stopped German tuners B&B conducting an extensive tuning program on the compact off-roader. With the range-topping Tiguan fitted out with all of B&B's modifications, customers are looking at a 300hp (225kW) SUV with around 295lb-ft (400Nm) of torque.

The first stage of tuning for the 1.4L TSI variant of the Tiguan starts at €998 and sees the SUV's power rise by almost one-third - from 150hp (112kW) to 190hp (142kW) - while peak torque grows from 177lb-ft (240Nm) to a more impressive 207lb-ft (280Nm).

Another €500 will see the benefits of the first stage of tuning along with a new, revised injection system and modified air intakes increase the output to 200hp (150kW) and 221lb-ft (300Nm) of torque. If that still isn't enough, then B&B can install a new turbocharger and intercooler that together increase power to 220hp (164kW) and 236lb-ft (320Nm) of torque at a cost of €5,998.

Meanwhile, for those with the 2.0L TFSI engine already in their Tiguan, the level one package takes output to 220hp (164kW) and 250lb-ft (340Nm) of torque, while the level two package increases both power and torque by 20 units. With the new turbocharger and intercooler that comes with the level three package, the 2.0 TFSI Tiguan will be outputting up to 300hp (225kW) and 295lb-ft (400Nm) of torque. The diesel variants of the Tiguan are also customizable, with the 2.0 TDI engine being modified to output up to 220hp (164kW) and 310lb-ft (420Nm) of torque.

Besides engine tuning, B&B is also offering an aerodynamic package to make the Tiguan look more aggressive and sporty. This involves 14 pieces of aero kit being bolted to the SUV, as well as custom allow wheels that go up to 20in. A sports suspension system also lowers the car by 40mm, improving handling, and custom sports exhaust systems give the car a more potent rumble.
