Engine and chassis

Precise to the last.

Rear-wheel drive in the BMW 3 Series Touring.


Delivering power to the rear wheels ensures the front wheels are free of torque steer and makes for incomparable agility, excellent handling and precision steering. In essence it means that the front wheels are dedicated to steering, while the rear wheels are assigned the task of powering the BMW 3 Series Touring. It also plays a significant role in obtaining an ideal body weight distribution, resulting in a safe, superior and dynamic drive.

It is no mistake that Formula 1 cars are configured with rear-wheel drive, the ultimate driving configuration for the Ultimate driving machine.
