In snow, ice, wet or muddy conditions, a conventional vehicle’s front or rear wheels can lose grip. With BMW xDrive, intelligent Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) sensors detect the slightest loss of grip, and using an electronically controlled multi-disc clutch, divert the power to the set of wheels that have the best traction, reacting much faster than traditional, hydraulically-operated systems. And unlike other all-wheel drive vehicles, BMW xDrive is a fully variable system that can send almost 100% of the power to either axle, offering instantaneous and effective transfer of engine power.
The result? Your BMW holds the road exceptionally, handling nearly every twist in the road and turn in the weather. And what's more, thanks to TwinPower Turbo engines and EfficientDynamics technologies, BMW xDrive models benefit from remarkably low CO2 figures too.
