The loyal BMW tuner Hartge prepared an upgrade package for the ugliest member of the Bavarian family, the new X1 crossover. They couldn’t do much to improve the X1’s appearance so they didn’t bother! There’s just some graphics, and new set of wheels. They can also lower the car’s ride height by 30mm, which sounds irrelevant becasue after all the X1 is a crossover and these things should have some ground clearance.

As for the wheels, Hartge offers 9 x 20” offset 33 with 245/30 ZR 20 at the front and 10 x 20” offset 40 with 295/25 ZR 20 at the rear with ContiSC-5, Pirelli Nero or the Michelin PS2 as particularly suitable tyres.

Interior upgrades include three-spoke leather steering wheel with aluminium emblem, two-part aluminium set of pedals for the automatic version, the aluminium footrest or the aluminium and leather hand-brake, and Hartge velour floor mats.

But as always Hartge does its best when it comes to power and performance. Here’s the details of what they offer for the X1:

The base engine of the 18d benefits from a 36 hp increase from 143 hp (105 kW) to 179 hp (126 kW) at 4000 rpm. Max. torque also takes a significant step up with 350 Nm (lb-ft 258) available at 2000 rpm. With this power boost, the manual sDrive18d accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.1 seconds, a good 1.5 seconds faster than the standard version. When it comes to top speed, the additional power gives the car another 17 km/h, namely 217 km/h instead of 200 km/h. In line with this, the top speed of the xDrive18d also climbs by 17 km/h.

The Hartge X1 xDrive20d shown here boasts 32 hp more than its standard brethren, which enables it to leap from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.2 instead of 8.4 seconds and add another 11 km/h to V-max. In the case of the sDrive20d (which sprints to 100 km/h in 6.9 instead of 8.1 seconds), the top speed rises to 229 km/h. Thanks to the Hartge modifications, maximum torque of the already powerful 4-cylinder engine with common-rail injection system and turbocharger rises from 350 to 415 Nm (lb-ft 306) at 2000 rpm.
