Available on the 520d, 530d, and 540i models, the optional xDrive 4 wheel drive system makes a big difference to the way the new 5 Series performs in poor weather conditions. giving the car permanent 4 wheel drive rather than rear wheel drive can make all the difference as soon as a bit of snow turns up as traditional rear wheel drive cars whilst excellent in drier conditions do have a habit of easily spinning up those rear wheels and not going anywhere when the white stuff arrives.
It's not only snow where 4 wheel drive can help, traction off the line in any conditions is improved, so pulling out of junctions and roundabouts becomes a lot safer. The most appealing aspect of the 2020 xDrive technology is the multi-plate clutch, which enables the engine to concentrate up to 99% of the power to either the front or rear axle as needed. In normal conditions, the torque ratio will be 40:60 front to rear. In a further effort to prevent the car skidding, the xDrive can also automatically slow one spinning wheel, while focussing the extra torque to the other side. This feature gives added traction, and greater peace of mind, when you need it most.
The xDrive equipped 5 Series Saloon and Touring Estate come at a slight premium compared with the equivalent rear-wheel drive models - typically prices are around £1,600 more than the rear-wheel drive Saloon. The top of the range Touring 540i model is only available in the xDrive configuration, and is priced starting from £48,000 before our discounts.
