If you thought BMW X1 cannot get any uglier, check this out! Thanks to the new aerodynamic kit prepared for it by AC Schnitzer, the X1 becomes a major candidate for the ugliest car of the year contest, if only such an award existed! They install a front and a roof spoiler plus a diffuser for more downforce, but why would you need that in a SUV which is not that fast anyway?! The tuner also offers upgraded engines and suspension and new 18,19 or 20-inch wheels.
Inside the cabin you get silver “Exclusiv” carbon interior trim, illuminated leather gear knob, aluminium gear knobs with or without digital gear display, “Black Line” aluminium cover for the i-Drive system controller, aluminium handbrake handle and pedal set, foot rests and velours foot mats.
As for performance, BMW X1 xDrive23d has been upgraded from a 150 kW/204 HP diesel engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo and Common Rail injection to 240 HP. The 2.0 d and 1.8 d units in the BMW X1 also feature Common Rail injection and a turbocharger, and with the AC Schnitzer tuning package achieve 210 and 171 HP respectively. Naturally, the power upgrades are available for both the sDrive and xDrive versions. The AC Schnitzer engine styling including capacity logo is available for vehicles with and without performance upgrade.
So thanks to the new sport springs and the body kit, AC Schnitzer ruins the already rubbish off-road capabilities of the X1. But you know wha, that’s fine. Because X1 is a city crossover and no one expects it to handle rough trains anyway. The thing is, for the same amount of money as a BMW X1 you can get other SUVs which are more capable, better equipped and most importantly, much better looking!
