Manhart upgrades the 2014 BMW X4 (F26)

Article by Andrew Christian, on August 8, 2014

Although BMW X4 has just hit the dealerships, Manhart Performance decided to upgrade the new sport activity coupe. As a result, the BMW X4 received a new set of 21-inch Manhart Concave One light metal wheels. As an alternative to the lacquered gunmetal with polished surface finish, Manhart offers the silk-matt black finish.

The wheels are wrapped in Continental Contact 5P tires. In addition, there is a new lowering kit that brings the vehicle 35 mm closer to the ground.

For those who don’t know, the BMW X4 xDrive35d comes as standard with a 3.0-liter N57D30 turbodiesel engine that generates 313 hp and 630 Nm of torque, but thanks to a new Manhart Performance Kit the output was boosted to an impressive 375 hp and 740 Nm of torque.

Manhart also offers a performance kit for all the versions of the X4, including the xDrive20i, xDrive28i and the xDrive35i. The 3.0-liter petrol engine develops 306 hp and 400 Nm but after Manhart did its thing, the total output is 370 hp and 520 Nm of torque.

Manhart BMW X4

With the new X4, BMW completed the already large series of X models by adding a further Crossover model and thereby set a little brother with remarkably similar family features next to the successful X6.

The BMW experts of Manhart Performance from Wuppertal are already presenting the xDrive35d top model of the brand new sport activity coupé at a first expanded tuning level! Manhart Performance’s own Concave One light metal wheel rotates in the voluminous wheel arches of the pictured X4, in the prestigious sizes of 9 × 21 inches on the front axle and of 10.5 × 21 inches on the rear axle.

As alternative to the "lacquered gunmetal with polished surface" finish that is shown here, this filigree double spoke design is also available in silk-matt black. The dimensions of the pulled up Continental Sport Contact 5P high performance tyres are 255 / 35R21 and 295 / 30R21. Thanks to the Manhart sports lowering kit that reduces the "innate" long-leggedness of the X4 by about 35 millimetres, the wheel / tyre combinations perform particularly well and on top of that, bring about a significant optimisation of the driving dynamics.

The bonnet of the X4 xDrive35d covers the current top engine of the series: Already in serial configuration, the N57D30 turbodiesel system gets 313 HP and 630 newton metres out of its three litre cylinder capacity. The Manhart Performance Kit pushes the surely not weak six inline cylinders to a copious 375 HP and stunning 740 Nm.

The Manhart Performance X4 also delivers independent power in abundance in every imaginable driving situation. Of course, Manhart Performance does not only have a power Upgrade for the top diesel model, it also offers similar improvements in performance for smaller spark ignition engines and for the turbocharged xDrive20i, xDrive28i and xDrive35i petrol engines, the latter delivering 370 HP and 520 newton metres of torque after the Manhart optimisation was completed (serially: 306 HP, 400 Nm).
