Irmscher’s new package is available for both gasoline- and diesel-powered models of the Grandland X. The company’s tune for the turbocharged, 1.2L four-cylinder brings peak power up to 155 horsepower (from 130), while the 1.6L turbodiesel is elevated from 120 to 145 horsepower. A set of lowering springs drops the ride height by 1.2 inches front and rear.
On the outside, Irmscher fitted the Opel crossover with a sportier grille, available with either a chrome or carbon fiber accent stripe, and the firm gives customers the option of an Opel badge delete. Other exterior goodies include side steps in polished stainless steel or matte black finish, a stainless steel rear protector below the hatch, and a set of 20-inch wheels. If 20 inches sounds a bit much, the Irmscher also offers 17-, 18-, and 19-inch wheel sizes.
Completing the package on the inside are stainless steel door sill plates, and optional high-quality leather with your choice of hides and colors. Not a bad way to personalize your ride, if you ask us.
Pricing isn’t available for every component just yet, though the side steps start at £729.26 (about $980), just to give you an idea.
Meanwhile, if you like the idea of a more performance-oriented of the Grandland X, but you don’t want to go aftermarket, know that an OPC variant of the crossover is rumored to be on the way, as is a plug-in hybrid model.
