M times four.

xDrive – the intelligent all-wheel drive system on the BMW X5 M.

Although the 555 hp is distributed between all four wheels, the intelligent all-wheel drive system has been especially set up in the BMW X5 M with a rear-wheel drive bias to provide typical M driving characteristics. This means that, depending on the situation, less drive is directed to the front axle which enables controlled drifting for the first time in an all-wheel drive vehicle. In extremely dynamic driving situations, the vehicle can also be steered with the accelerator.
