The second generation BMW X4 is not the prettiest coupe SUV out there, yet certain tuners think they can make it more appealing. Hamann is one of them and their proposal includes a few visual updates on the outside that make it “a real eye-catcher”, in the tuner’s own words.
We will let you be the judge of that, after first going through the changes. For starters, the German tuner has added a new front apron, wheel arch covers and rear diffuser. The package also includes a lowering spring set, four aftermarket tailpipes and a new set of 22 inch wheels named the Anniversary Evo.
Now, Hamann is not accepting orders for the latest parts aimed at the new X4 just yet, but will start soon enough. Naturally, they should fit every version of the premium compact model, including the top-of-the-line X4 M, which has the Jaguar F-Pace SVR and Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 Coupe in its sight. The M-developed X4 does the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in as little as 4.0 seconds, given that you go for the Competition version, or 4.1 in the ‘regular’ variant.
The former enjoys 503 horsepower (510 PS / 375 kW) and 442 pound-feet (599 Nm) of torque, whereas the latter has to make do with only 473 hp (480 PS / 352 kW) and an identical torque level. Top speed climbs from 155 to 177 mph (250-284 km/h) with the optional M Driver’s Package and the two grades come with an eight-speed transmission and rear-biased all-wheel drive system, for a lively back end befitting a BMW.
