Exactly one year after the compact crossover’s official unveiling, AC Schnitzer has released its first tuning package for the BMW X2.
The pack enhances both the styling and the performance of the X2, courtesy of a new aero kit and sports suspension – plus a power upgrade in development.
Design-wise, the changes aren’t dramatic, but they manage to give the X2 a more dynamic look. The aerodynamic package consists of an M-Technik front splitter supplied together with triangular design elements for the standard front apron, as well as a roof spoiler.
The tuner also supplies AC1 alloy wheels in 19 or 20 inches, available in BiColor silver/black or in anthracite. The wheels come fitted with tires sized 225/45 R 19 or 245/35 R 20, respectively. Rounding off the exterior tweaks are the custom exhaust tailpipes in three different designs and the AC Schnitzer badging.
Inside, the tuner opted for aluminum accessories including the pedals, shift paddle set in black/red, and the “Black Line” cover for the iDrive controller.
As for performance, the aftermarket specialists offer a suspension spring set that lowers the X2 by approximately 20-35 mm (0.78-1.37 in) on the front and rear axles, depending on the model.
There’s also an engine upgrade in the works that sees the X2 20d upgraded from 190PS (187 hp) to 222 PS (219 hp). The diesel power kit will be available later on for both sDrive and xDrive versions.
