Take a peek at our new inventory at BMW of Peoria and you’ll notice plenty of models with signature BMW performance. But before you take a new car home to Pekin, you might stop and wonder, “What’s the difference between BMW sDrive vs xDrive?” To put it simply,
Both have their own benefits, so which is right for you?
BMW sDrive is a two-wheel drive system that directs engine power to a single set of wheels. Models like the BMW X2 Series feature front-wheel drive, while sporty models like the 7 Series use rear-wheel drive.
Though not a BMW AWD system, BMW sDrive provides responsive handling and fantastic efficiency for your Galesburg travels.
If you struggle with rough road conditions and harsh weather, a true BMW AWD system may be what you need. BMW xDrive is unique in its approach, offering intelligent AWD technology that monitors the conditions of the road at all times with Dynamic Stability Control and Dynamic Traction Control.
If your wheels slip, power is redistributed immediately to boost performance and help you regain control.
To get a better idea of how these drivetrains differ, compare the BMW sDrive vs. xDrive specs on the BMW X1:
2020 BMW X1 sDrive ($35,200 MSRP):
2020 BMW X1 xDrive ($37,200 MSRP)
Both have the same 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission with Sport and Manual modes.
