Permanent superior traction for even more driving pleasure: BMW M GmbH presents the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system for the new BMW M3 Competition Sedan and the new BMW M4 Competition Coupé.
That means: more performance, more driven wheels and more inimitable M feeling. Known from M automobiles like the BMW M8 Competition. The M specific all-wheel-drive system enables the new models to accelerate faster than ever before thanks to maximum traction.
With the M xDrive for BMW M3 and M4, there’s also a choice of three power transmission modes. Two performance-orientated 4WD modes as well as one pure 2WD mode for the especially puristic driving experience.
The new models distribute the power of their 375 kW/510 hp inline-6-cylinder engines. Via the 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic. The M specific all-wheel-drive system then splits the power in an ideal ratio between front and rear axle.
This allows the driver to experience an intoxicating interpretation of the hallmark M performance characteristics reflected. Among other things, in even quicker acceleration.
Teaming up with the intelligent all-wheel-drive system is the Active M Differential, which also ensures fully variable distribution of drive torque. Between the rear wheels as the situation demands. This helps to transfer the drive torque to the road without any loss of power. Especially when the car is being pushed hard or has less grip on one side.
