About BMW 320i xDrive
If this 320i is any indication of what’s to come, Audi ought to be concerned about the impending launch of xDrive in the UK. The system provides a significant amount of grip while maintaining the BMW’s dynamic capabilities. Because the car has such a planted feel to it, you can confidently take corners even when the road is icy. New diesels that are on the horizon will raise the bar even higher.
Customers on the Continent have been able to purchase iX saloons and estates since the eighties, in contrast to the situation in the United Kingdom, where a four-wheel-drive BMW that is not an SUV is something of a novelty.
Due to the prohibitive cost of converting the system to right-hand drive, BMW had previously allowed Audi to dominate the market for four-wheel drive executive cars; however, that situation has changed. BMW believes that economies of scale have tipped in favor of the buyer, and the most recent iteration of the 3 Series is the company’s first vehicle to be offered with four-wheel drive on the market in the United Kingdom.
At first, the only engine that will be available with the system will be the 2.0-liter turbo gasoline engine that comes standard on the 320i. BMW acknowledges that upcoming diesel models should prove to be more popular, but the benefits of four-wheel drive become immediately apparent even in the absence of a sizable torque figure.
The BMW 3 Series xDrive, much like the Audi A6 Allroad, was conceived with on-road driving as its primary focus during the design process. The front and rear axles receive 40% and 60% of the power, respectively, when the vehicle is being driven normally.
A multi-plate wet clutch acts as a centre differential, which manages the transfer of power between the front and rear wheels.
In extreme conditions, it can shift up to 100 per cent of the available power to whichever set of tyres has more grip.
The BMW system, in contrast to the one used by Audi, is a reactive one. It uses a group of sensors that are connected to the traction control system in order to detect when the wheels begin to lose grip on the road. Only then does it transfer power to the areas of the vehicle that require it the most. This results in a delay between the initial loss of traction and the system kicking in, but the slightly slower response compared to the Audi’s set-up is so minimal that it is almost impossible to notice.
