Four-wheel drive isn’t just for crossing muddy fields. It brings a safer, more responsive drive to every journey on any surface in any conditions – snow, ice, or heavy rain. By powering all of the wheels all of the time, and by varying the amount of power each wheel gets depending on its grip, slippery roads become less treacherous, and bends can be exited with more power. All thanks to xDrive, the BMW approach to four-wheel drive.
BMW xDrive is available on almost every BMW vehicle, from the BMW 1 Series Sports Hatch to the BMW X models. The BMW X models are what many people imagine of when they think of a 4x4, and it’s these that are looked at in more detail.
