Most of the new BMW 3 Series models are rear-wheel driven, but there are a select few models which are fitted with BMW’s intelligent four-wheel drive system, labelled xDrive. These offer a greater degree of stability in snowy weather, and on uneven surfaces. As you might expect, these models are designed to meet the needs of drivers who regularly need more traction and responsiveness in their drive, as well as those who prefer the security and control provided by a four-wheel drive vehicle. You have a choice of the 320i, 320d, 330d or the most powerful M340i petrol engine.
The most appealing aspect of the 2021 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.
Pricewise, the xDrive equipped 3 Series Saloon, Touring Estate and Gran Turismo 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 M340i model is only available in the xDrive configuration, and is priced starting from £48,000 before discount.
