BMW X1 Got A Hartge Power Boost

Bmw X1

Although those from M GmbH started to turn new BMW SUVs into real road missiles , it is unlikely that the new X1 to enjoy the same treatment. And if we talk about diesel versions, is fantastic. But not even matter! Hartge arrived in time to a number of goodies for diesel versions of the compact SUV!

First, aesthetic modifications give a special flavor of the new BMW X1. Sports springs lowers the ride height by about 30 mm and are a great team with two ten-spoke 20-inch Classic 2 wheels, prospective customers may opt for three-spoke sport steering wheel, leather trim for the shifter and hand brake, aluminum pedals, new carpet and, last but not least, already unmissing logos.

Under the hood , improvements have been kept to a minimum level, but the result is maximum. By optimizing the control unit, the 2.0-liter engine on 18d version now develops 179 HP and 350 Nm of torque, acceleration from 0-60 mph improving by up to 1.5 seconds. Same formula was applied in the case of the 2.0-liter engine on 20d version , the gain is 32 HP. With 207 HP and 415 Nm of torque on board, the Bavarian SUV can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 6.9 seconds, while all-wheel drive version needs 7.2 seconds.
