No two journeys are identical: on a bend, the outer wheels have a longer path than the inner. BMW Performance Control takes up this challenge and uses it to create a more dynamic driving experience by controlling each wheel individually.
In modern automobiles, the wheels on the same axle are connected by a differential – a special transmission that compensates this difference in length. BMW Performance Control takes this individual control a step further by changing engine output and, if necessary, applying braking force: the outer wheels get greater drive power, the inner wheels get less power, and all four can engage with maximum traction. The BMW X1 practically banks into the bend, for even greater dynamism and safety.
