BMW’s dynamic all-wheel drive system, known as xDrive, is available in several of the 4 Series models of Coupes, Gran Coupes and Convertibles. These xDrive models offer all the sportiness and elegance displayed by the rear-wheel drive versions, with added stability and greater traction over uneven road surfaces.
If you are likely to use your BMW 4 Series to drive in snow, over mountains, or off the beaten track, then the additional cost of around £1,600 will seem like a small price to pay for the enhanced traction, cornering stability and peace of mind provided by the xDrive 4 wheel drive technology.
Powered by a multi-plate clutch, the xDrive 4x4 uses Dynamic Stability Control to monitor the driving conditions and splits the engine’s torque to power either the front or rear wheel axle, as required. The system also reduces the chance of skidding on ice, by automatically slowing one wheel as it detects over-steer, while increasing the power to the opposite side. Simple, but highly effective, the xDrive 4WD technology has been proven to reduce the incident rate of collisions and loss of driver control in poor weather.
In the 4 Series Coupe and Gran Coupe range, the xDrive technology is available in 420i petrol, 420d, 430d and 435d diesel models, providing an all-wheel drive option to suit every budget. The only 4 Series Convertible currently available with xDrive technology is the top of the range 435d model, priced at £53,000 in M Sport trim.
