BMW xDrive All Wheel Drive System Explained
The BMW all-wheel drive system, xDrive, ensures your BMW has the best possible traction at all times, enhancing agility and keeping you safely on track, even on fast bends. xDrive is the permanent all-wheel drive system from BMW: under normal circumstances, it distributes driver power between the front and rear axles in a 40:60 ratio, and changes this figure variably when the road surface or overall driving conditions change. Acting virtually instantaneously and a manner so subtle as to be go virtually unnoticed by the vehicle's occupants, xDrive can direct up to 100% of drive forces to one axle. Enabling the driver to start up effortlessly even on slippery surfaces or steep hills, xDrive routes all power to the axles with the greatest traction. When parking, the system reacts to the need for high manoeuvrability at low speed by opening the clutch completely so the powertrain functions optimally. At the first sign of understeering, drive power to the front axle is reduced. If oversteering is detected, xDrive directs more power to the front axle. Thanks to this dynamic redistribution of power, vehicle stability returns to normal even before the driver notices anything amiss. Driving on a winding road or taking a fast bend in dynamic style is particularly enjoyable with xDrive: you feel as if your BMW is being guided along the curve. xDrive ensures that none of drive power is wasted on a loss of traction: every kilowatt of power is effectively brought to bear on the road. xDrive is regulated by Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and uses information from the latter system’s sensors to monitor road conditions. In addition, brake force courtesy of DSC is used when there is traction difference between the two sides of the vehicle and wheel spin is likely.

2018 Audi A8 - Revolution Technology

The car is confirmed for a reveal on July 11 but won't reach showrooms until 2018. It will arrive as a 2019 model. The new A8, the nameplate’s fourth generation, is the first model to be styled under the guidance of Marc Lichte who took over the design reins at Audi in late 2013. He’s already previewed the new look with the series of Prologue concepts, which, judging by our latest spy shots and video, the new A8 will closely resemble. The size of the vehicle isn’t changing much compared with the current A8, though the nose looks to be a little longer. Under the new sheet metal is the latest evolution of Audi's MLB platform, which is destined for a number of Audi models and even some from Volkswagen, such as the new Touareg. The latest MLB platform made its debut in the 2017 Q7 and brings significant weight savings and compatibility with alternative powertrains. The basic engine lineup should be similar to the current A8’s offerings, meaning V-6 and V-8 units. A W-12 is also likely to be offered once more, and we should see a plug-in hybrid option and possibly even a battery-electric option later in the life cycle. Some models are also likely to feature an electric compressor, particularly diesels. Don't expect any diesels to be sold in the U.S., though. There will also be loads of new technologies to aid the driver. For example, the new A8 will be the first Audi capable of handling some situations in full self-driving mode. It will be able to handle parking situations as well as driving in traffic at speeds of up to 37 mph thanks to a new feature called Traffic Jam Pilot. Other advancements should include a new infotainment system with gesture control, plus new lighting technologies including organic LEDs in the taillights. Also in the works is the sporty S8 variant, spy shots for which can be seen here. "Mercedes S-Class BMW 8 Series, 7 Series New 2017 Test Drive interior New 2017 Test Drive" "SUBSCRIBE NOW"
