The main advantage of the BMW 1 Series xDrive four wheel drive (4WD) model over other models in the series is increased stability and handling on uneven road surfaces, around tight curves and in wintry conditions. The technology used in creating this innovative and sporty model is similar to that designed for use in high performance rally cars, and off-road racing. It works by delivering different amounts of power to the front and rear wheels, depending on the raid conditions, normally in a 40:60 ratio. This technology is combined with the 120d 1 Series model to provide a unique vehicle, which will appeal to motorists who want to take their driving experience outside normal conditions.
The increased traction provided by the four wheel drive system causes a slight increase in CO2 emissions of around 4g/km compared with the rear wheel drive 1 Series models. The model’s engine performance is unaffected, however, and the streamlined chassis and sporty suspension mean that drivers will not notice any negative effects on handling or responsiveness.
The 2021 xDrive 4WD model is available in a choice of three different trims: SE, Sport and M Sport. Each trim comes with its own specifications and design features, and can be customised with a choice of upgrade comfort or style packages. The gearbox included in the BMW 1 Series xDrive model is a high performance 6 speed manual. The cost of a brand new 120d xDrive varies from around £31,000 to £35,000 depending on the choice of trim, or you could go for the top end M135i performance model which as it as standard.
