xDrive: the intelligent all-wheel drive system from BMW.

With xDrive a BMW takes full advantage of the benefits of rear-wheel drive: precise handling, optimum cornering and a clear separation between the engine and steering. Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) is only activated if it is necessary to redistribute engine power when conditions deteriorate: the system effectively counters over- or understeering by engaging the electronically controlled multiple-plate clutch, which reacts within a tenth of a second, to distribute up to 100% of the engine power to the front or rear axle and then back to the normal 40:60 ratio. With the BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system each axle optimally uses its traction to provide stabile acceleration out of every bend.
