AC Schnitzer tunes the BMW X1

The BMW X1 is one of the newest models coming from our favorite Bavarian carmaker. We had a blast testing it out in some rough conditions and the overall impressions were quite favorable. Now, the tuning team at AC Schnitzer decided to play around a bit with the X1, which resulted in an array of performance and cosmetic packages for the crossover-ish BMW.

First off, let’s start with the performance upgrades. At the Geneva Motor Show, AC Schnitzer will present the ones for the diesel variants of the X1: the 1.8d now generates 171 HP, the 2.0d outputs 210 HP and, last but not least, the xDrive23d gets 240 HP. All of these upgrades will be available for both the sDrive and xDrive variants.

Mechanical upgrades also include things like a new suspension system and an aluminum strut brace, in order to make the big BMW more agile. Cosmetic enhancements include the new aerodynamic body kit, made out of a restyled front spoiler, rear skirt extension and rear roof spoiler, all improving down force, as well as a chromed “Racing” tailpipe decoration and new sets of wheels measuring 18- or 19-inches.

On the inside, the AC Schnitzer BMW X1 sports a silver-themed carbon interior trim, an illuminated leather gear knob, “Black Line” aluminum cover for the i-Drive system as well as for the handbrake handle and pedal set.

    Will the new AC Schnitzer performance and cosmetic packages will lead to hike in the pricing? If yes, then can you please mention the figures?
