xDrive. The intelligent all-wheel drive system from BMW.

At BMW we believe that powering all four wheels makes driving safer and more engaging, an approach we started in 1985 with the BMW 325i 'Allrad'. Over time we've developed new technology to make our all-wheel drive system react faster, more intelligently and with greater precision.

The intelligent all-wheel drive system, called BMW xDrive, offers a new dimension to driving enjoyment, and makes your journey safer when confronted by adverse conditions such as a rain-soaked motorway or snow. It's available across a range of BMW models - from the BMW 1 Series Sports Hatch through to the luxury of the new BMW 7 Series - and as well as providing peace of mind, it also lets you enjoy the power of your BMW on every bend.


Power to every wheel when it's needed most.


The idea is simple, the technology advanced.


BMW xDrive models in a size to suit every lifestyle, from convertibles to saloons.
