H&R launches coilovers for current-gen VW Tiguan
The new Volkswagen Tiguan has plenty going for it, both in terms of appearance and functions. That said, you may find the SUV predictably lacking in cornering performance at higher speeds. This is where aftermarket suspension parts manufacturer H&R comes in.
The new H&R lowering kit contains height-adjustable springs (coilovers), rather than the more common fixed-height lowering springs. As such, it boasts a hefty €1,206 price tag, but offers great ride height reduction on both axles. Specifically, you can lower the front axle by 40 to 60 mm (1.5 – 2.4 inches) and the rear axle by 45 to 70 mm (1.8 – 2.7 inches).
Once upgraded, the Volkswagen Tiguan assumes a much sportier stance and needs less time to accelerate from standstill. It also rolls less when entering sharp road turns.
Alongside with the coilovers, H&R also has regular springs, roll stabilizers and wheel spacers in stock for the German SUV.
