The German Tuning house ABT decided to deal with the tuning of all VW Passat engines except the basic ones. ABT except for the limousine offers finishes and caravans. In addition to visual modifications, there is also an increase in engine power for all performance except for basic ones. Thus, the power increase is possible for the 1.4 TSI that comes with 150 hp and ABT raises it to 180 hp. Something else gets owners of variants with the 2.0 TSI engine. For 2.0 TSIs of 220 hp, ABT offers power up to 290 hp, while the model from the factory 280 hp is up to 336 hp. The same thing is for diesel engines (150 hp at 170 hp, 190 hp at 215 hp, 240 hp at 270 hp). On the outside, there are a number of options, such as a new front bumper, lip and spoiler (for a caravan version). There is a larger number of ABT wheels ranging from 18 to 20 inches. In addition, the ABT springs lower the car by 35 mm, resulting in better road holding. Finally, a new exhaust system is also available.


Engine power increase is between 1500 and 2000 €, the set of tires ranges from 3000 to 5000 €, while the external package is 3400 €. There are some cheaper springs that are 350 €, while the exhaust system needs to allocate 1500 €. When all this sums up, the entire ABT tuning can stand over 12,000 €.
