But this XDrive is for sure uses more elctronics to control power coupling from rear to front when slippage detected. But it's very light compare to worm-drive Quattro systems for sure.
Yes BMW finally decided to put AWD into x50 class, but not in M cars yet.
It might be light compared to other systems, but actually it adds 200 lbs to the car's base weight. It's like driving around with a heavy passenger next to you.
