The German aftermarket specialist is apparently well aware that “less can be more” and has decided to overhaul the Grandland X crossover in a very subtle manner – both from the technical and design point of view.
The subtle aerodynamic body kit includes a simpler grille, with a stylish chrome or carbon fiber accent strip on top, new side steps in polished stainless steel or matte black, as well as add-ons for the fog light area. In the rear the tuner fitted a new stainless-steel protector below the hatchback for added panache and more protection for the vehicle when loading heavy, blunting stuff in the trunk. The exterior transformation is complete with a new set of wheels with twisted spokes and 20-inch diameter – for those weary of issues with such large alloys there are also variants from 17 to 19 inch.
Irmscher’s modifications are not all about the design – performance can also be mildly upgraded. Any of the gasoline or diesel engine options can receive a little bit of tuning to extract an additional 25 horsepower (19 kilowatts). Handling can be improved with new springs that drop the crossover closer to the ground by 1.2 inches (30 millimeters). Inside, owners will gain stainless steel doorsill plates, along with high-quality leather, with the aftermarket outlet giving the buyer the choice of hide and color.
