Like the CC that Volkswagen brought to the show, the Performance in this Tiguan’s title means it got help from APR. The stock 2.0-liter turbo four gets an APR stage 3 turbo kit that increases engine output to 295 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque, up from 200 and 207, respectively. Power is sent through VW’s six-speed DSG transmission and 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. An APR/Brembo brake system brings things to a stop, while H&R springs and sway bars improve handling.
