The muscular hood andsquare-shape, ared wheel arches. The contoured anks and L-shape rear taillights featuring glowing LED technology that emits horizontal lightbars, a BMW signature design. Concave and convex surfaces create an interplay of light and shadow, while wedge-shape rocker panels suggestcontinual motion. But this sleekness isn’t just for aesthetics: the Xﬁ ’s streamlined design also creates a low coefﬂ cient of drag for further efﬂ ciency.Conﬂ dent, bold, yet still highly reﬂ ned, this is a design of elegant composure and supreme function. From all angles, the BMW Xﬁ is a perfectlyproportioned work of art.
Exterior12 13INSTINCTIVE HANDLING.DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER.The BMW X has an instinctive feel for the road. Tarmac, gravel,dirt – it handles them all with ease, thanks in part to a doublejoint spring strut front axle that delivers unsurpassed agility andsuperior wheel control. The X includes many performance-enhancing features, such as Hill Descent Control, which holdsit to a slow set speed without having to touch the brakes downsteep hills. BMW’s Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), combinedwith xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive, results in optimum traction.During hard braking, Brake Fade Compensation keeps brakepedal action consistent, even when brakes heat up from heavyor repeated use, such as on long downhill grades; during wetconditions, Brake Drying brings brake pads into contact withrotors to dry them. An array of available features take the X tooutstanding heights of control, handling and stability. ActiveSteering, for example, makes parking, cornering and highway-speed steering easier by changing the amount of steering inputneeded, based on vehicle speed.

COLORSWITH DEPTH.Red vehicles seem the fastest, while whitecars are thought of as sparkling clean. Whichcolors best reﬂ ect the spirit of the times – andthe BMW X ? BMW color designers have allthe answers.Long ago, BMW color designers predicted that whitewould come back into style. In many cultures, white isconsidered a pure, healing shade, and this associationperfectly suits the mood of the moment. BMW colordesigners also believe the current predilection for whiteis no ﬂ ash in the pan, either. Unlike furniture, fashionand architecture, trends in the automotive sector tendto be longer lasting.The public’s growing appreciation of the natural andthe sustainable has also inﬂ uenced BMW designers’color selections for the X . They believe this SportsActivity Vehicle® is best complemented by muted,natural colors. The metallic colors Sparkling Bronze,Platinum Gray and Deep Sea Blue are part of thisapproach.

Chassis/Safety30 31Active Steering.The Active Steering systemadjusts both steering ratio andsteering force in relation to drivingspeed. At low to medium speeds,a small turn of the steering wheeltranslates into a big turn of thefront wheels. You enjoy more agil-ity in city driving, quicker turns ontwisting roads, and easier parkingmaneuvers. At higher speeds, alarger turn of the steering wheelis needed to turn the front wheels,resulting in greater straight-linestability.xDrive all-wheel drive.BMW’s xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system takes all-road tractionto new heights. On smooth, dryroads, the BMW X has a rear-wheel-drive feel. But hit a wetuphill curve, for instance, or wetleaves, water or snow, and evenbefore wheelspin can occur, thesystem immediately recognizesany need for a change in powerdistribution. It can send moretorque to the front axle to achievestability. And should one wheel onan axle spin faster than the other,the brakes automatically engage,as needed, to bring all wheelsback in sync. With xDrive, youenjoy optimum traction at all times.Hill Descent Control (HDC).When driving down steep hills,Hill Descent Control automaticallykeeps the BMW X to a low speedwithout having to “ride the brakes,”so you can concentrate on steering.At the same time, the brakelightsare automatically activated to warnother drivers to slow down. HDCis especially useful when drivingdownhill on slippery surfaces,such as gravel, snow or grass.Adaptive Drive.This feature combines Active RollStabilization (ARS) and DynamicDamping Control (DDC) – twoactive suspension control systemsthat combine sporty handling withenhanced ride comfort. Whencornering, ARS generates a strongresistance to body roll, helping tokeep the vehicle level. This addsto passenger comfort – and, forthe driver, maximum stability andexciting agility. DDC instantly andcontinuously adjusts the shockabsorbers from the softest to ﬁ rm-est settings during changes invehicle speed, load, or road anddriving conditions. The result isa sporty ride that is always solidand controlled – never harsh.The BMW X offers a host of innovative performance-enhancing technologies,as well as active and passive safety features that help you get the most pleasureout of every drive.Dynamic Stability Control(DSC). Working with xDrive,Dynamic Stability Control monitorsvehicle speed, steering wheelangle, body rotation and more todetermine where you want the Xto go – and where it is actuallyheaded. If DSC senses over- orundersteer, it helps stabilize the Xin just milliseconds by modulatingengine power; it can also applybrakes individually to each wheel.DSC enhanced brake features.The value of Dynamic StabilityControl is further enhanced withthe integration of four brakingfeatures. Brake Stand-by pre-tenses the brake calipers whenyou suddenly remove your footfrom the accelerator pedal. BrakeDrying lightly dries the brakeswhen rain sensors detect mois-ture. Start-off Assistant helpsprevent the X from rolling back-ward when stopped on a hill. AndBrake Fade Compensation letsyou use the same amount of brakepressure, even when brakes heatup from repeated or heavy use,such as on long downhill grades.Dynamic Traction Control(DTC). For sportier driving orin deep snow, Dynamic TractionControl allows increased wheelslip.Specially tailored to the X , DTC isactivated at the push of a button,improving initial accelerationon loose snow or sand. Whenactivated, it delays the interventionof DSC.Occupant cell.An extremely rigid steel “safetycage” surrounds the occupantcompartment, with deformablecrush tubes front and rear. In asevere crash, impact energy isrouted around the passengercabin and absorbed by the safetycage. In a severe side impact, areinforcing bar hooks the door tothe body, locking them togetherto make a more rigid passengercell. When the pressure is released,the system is designed to snapback so that the doors can open.IF THE BMW X IS BEAUTIFUL TO LOOK AT,WHAT’S INSIDE IS POSITIVELY STUNNING. bmwusa.com/technologyGetthe latestinformation on BMW standard and optional features, packages and technical speci cations.Visit bmwusa.com, select the BMW model of your choice, and click on “Features & Specs.”

A TEST DRIVEIN EUROPE’SFROZEN NORTH.Before each BMW model goes onto the production line,it is tested under extreme conditions in Sweden.The workshops at theBMW Test Center inArjeplog employ more than people throughoutthe winter months.Right up against the edge of the Arctic Circle – degrees minutesnorth, degrees minutes east – winter temperatures hover well below °F. Only late in the morning does the sun heave into view, and it’s notlong before it disappears again under the gray horizon.A pretty desolate region. But suddenly, the dry powder explodes into thefrosty air as a BMW X sweeps around the bend. The speed is breath-taking on the icy-smooth surface, a road whose contours can only beguessed at beneath the enveloping white. These are the winter tests inLapland, in northern Sweden – the frozen extremity of Europe – whereeach BMW is sent to prove that it can function perfectly, even underextreme conditions. You can watch as the vehicles are put through theirpaces on the frozen expanses of Lake Hornavan. The X hurtles over themirror-like surface, brakelights glowing; it ﬁ shtails brieﬂ y and is still. Thenit executes a series of circles, slowing gradually to come to a ﬁ nal stop atthe farther edge of the ice.For Heinz Krusche, this kind of drama is all in a day’s work. An engineerby training, for the last years he has been commuting , milesfrom BMW headquarters in Munich to the white deserts around Arjeplog,itself a small town of only , souls. This secluded outpost, though,does boast a modern airﬁ eld nearby, where large airliners come and godaily, and where December sees an inﬂ ux of test drivers from all over theworld. Their colleagues, meanwhile, have trekked north in trucks loadedwith sophisticated electronic equipment, as the supermarket parkinglot gradually ﬁ lls with a whole auto shows-worth of high-end vehicles.Models that have not yet made their debut on the market are discreetlyveiled in black tape.As Krusche, the chief tester, observes, “Only places like this give us thescope to try out all possible driving situations under the same climaticconditions.” His team’s task is to test out and optimize every vehiclefeature, from the mechanics of the sliding glass roof and the enginetemperature management, right down to the tires themselves. Each testvehicle is equipped with the very latest in sensory technology; some areturned into veritable laboratories on wheels. Krusche and his expert creware working on an advanced version of the systems that regulate drivingdynamics in conjunction with BMW xDrive, the intelligent four-wheel-drive system. They are focusing in particular on braking, starting up andaccelerating in situations the average driver may never encounter. Theengineers are aiming to ﬁ nd ways to ensure optimum stability and safety.The crucial factor here is the frictional coefﬁ cient, which on ice andsnow is so low that tires lose their grip and the vehicle cannot beproperly steered or stopped.On a frozen lake the frictional coefﬁ cient is practically zero. In this icyterrain, there is plenty of opportunity to put the electronic driver assis-tance systems to the test. It seems almost impossible how serenelyand under control the BMW X cruises over the slick, polished surface.The vehicle’s electronic control centers are hooked up to laptops todownload the latest software for the Dynamic Stability Control, whichcan stop a skid in its tracks. “We often rack up hundreds of miles outhere,” says Krusche. All this driving, measuring and analysis is centeredon meeting the needs of the customer. “The great numbers we canget on the test runs are important to us, but not that crucial in the end.The main thing is to improve the numbers in those areas that are goingto make a difference to the customer’s everyday driving experience.”Krusche further explains, “We investigate everything, measure everythingand aim to modify a lot that we ﬁ nd. The key objective is to bring outmaximum performance while retaining the key characteristics of a BMW.”These long hours behind the wheel are more than just a joyride. Perilousconditions can and do arise, and more than once Krusche or one of histeam has found himself stuck in a fairly severe blizzard. “That is anothersituation where you’re glad you’re in a BMW,” he says.The low frictional coefﬁ cientson the frozen lakes are perfectfor repeatable test drives atthe limits of adhesion.A HOST OF MANUFACTURERS DO THEIRTESTING IN ARJEPLOG.
