BMW officially announced the introduction of the xDrive system on the 2-Series Active Tourer, making this model the first front-wheel drive model to gain the xDrive system.
The four-wheel drive system will be available only on the 220d and 225i models. In the diesel version, fuel economy figures are rated at 4,8 liters/100 km with CO2 emissions of 127 g/km.
The petrol model returns an average of 6,5 liters/100 km with CO2 emissions of 152 g/km.
“The fundamental difference to previous variants is that, for the first time, BMW xDrive is premised on a front-wheel drive concept with transversally installed engines,” adds the carmaker.
They also say that the xDrive system adds about 61 kilograms to the total mass. While the front-wheel drive system proved to meet the company’s expectations, the four-wheel drive one will certainly improve even more the model’s dynamics and traction.
