xDrive, BMW’s intelligent four-wheel drive system, is an option in the new BMW 3 Series Saloon. xDrive adapts perfectly to the most challenging road surface conditions, ensuring the best traction and driving experience at all times.


When driving on surfaces such as mud, gravel or snow, more power has to be applied to the road, that’s when xDrive’s Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) sensors come into play. In addition to improving traction, the system also recognises the first signs of oversteering and understeering. Within a tenth of a second it distributes almost 100% of the engine torque to the front or rear axle allowing precise handling, optimum cornering and ultimate peace of mind.
