After showing us all sorts of alloy wheel designs for the new BMW X1, AC Schnitzer announced today that it will celebrate the world premiere of its complete tuning package for the Bavarian automaker's compact SUV/Crossover at next month's Geneva Motor Show.|
The main event of the German company's tune are the new upgrades for the X1's diesel powerplants. With these kits, output of the xDrive23d's 2.0-liter twin-turbocharged unit raises from 204HP to 240HP; the "s" and xDrive20d's 2.0-liter turbo from 177HP to 210HP and the "s" and xDrive18d's 2.0-liter turbo from 143HP to 171HP.
Those that opt for the xDrive28i with a 258HP straight-six petrol will have to do with a new sport exhaust system only.
Along with the improved engines, AC Schnitzer also offers a sport suspension and a choice of 18-, 19- or 20-inch alloy wheels in various designs.
For the X1's exterior, AC Schnitzer has readied a package that comprises of a front spoiler, rear apron, bonnet vents and a roof spoiler.
Interior upgrades come in the form of special carbon-fiber trim, illuminated leather gear knob, aluminium gear knobs with or without digital gear display, a unique aluminium cover for the i-Drive system controller, aluminium handbrake handle and pedal set, foot rests and velours foot mats.
