B&B Automobiltechnik is a German tuner that specializes on German vehicles. So it was really surprising that for their latest program, they decided to take on a British SUV in the form of the Range Rover Evoque.
Really, if you’ve seen their past programs, having a British SUV on that list feels a little out of place. But to their credit, they were able to build a program that boasts of impressive improvements on the Evoque’s multitude of engine options.
The base model, which carries a 2.2-liter turbo diesel ED4 or TD4 engine, B&B was able to use its Stage 1 performance kit to increase the SUV’s output from the standard 148 horsepower and 280 lb/ft of torque all the way up 177 horsepower and 332 lb/ft of torque. If the Stage 1 program isn’t enough for you, the German tuner also has a Stage 2 kit, which boasts output even further, hitting 197 horsepower and 350 lb/ft of torque.
From there, B&B turned its attention on the 2.2-liter SD4 diesel engine. Just like the base model, this engine trim is treated to two performance programs, Level 1 package that boasts the output from 188 horsepower all the way up to 227 horsepower and 354 lb/ft of torque while the Level 2 package hits all the right notes to 241 horsepower and 369 lb/ft of torque.
Finally, there’s the top-of-the-line 2.2-liter turbocharged engine that already comes with 240 horsepower in production guise. But thanks to B&B and its Stage 1 kit, that output hits 268 horsepower while the Stage 2 kit bumps it up even further to 282 horsepower. And finally, there’s also a Stage 3 kit that gives the Evoque 295 horsepower. This program, in particular, nets the SUV a new 0-62 mph time of just 6.5 seconds with a faster top speed of 143 mph.
Calling it like we see it, B&B Automobiltechnik managed to give Evoque owners not only variety, but impressive aftermarket engine improvements.
