H&R Volkswagen Tiguan

Hailed as the ‘GTI of SUV’s’ by VW, the 2009 VW Tiguan looks to dominate its own niche of the compact SUV market. Coming from a legacy of strong, performance vehicles, the Tiguan owns street and off-road paths equally. A popular choice for everybody—from your daily driver to your adrenaline-junkie—we knew the Tiguan would be an excellent project vehicle.

Using H&R Street Performance Coil Overs, we have lowered the Tiguan approximately 2.0 inches to better balance vehicle weight—resulting in a lower center of gravity with improved performance and control. The handling feels tight, and the car looks good. The complete body kit, including rear wing and front grill, from ABT Germany in united grey metallic gives the Tiguan a completely unique look. Twenty-inch O.Z. Superleggera wheels in a bright silver finish from the Tire Rack, with Yokohama tires, provide the Tiguan style for the street—while H&R 40mm TRAK+? wheel spacers balance out the look by correctly aligning the tires and wheels within the fender wells.

H&R offers a variety of products for the VW Tiguan—from our TRAK+® wheel spacers, to our front and rear sway bars, and sport springs. Check out all of our offerings in the new 2009 H&R Product and Application Guide.
