BMW recently sent a few local journalists to Delhi for the BMW Xperience 2011, which was organised by BMW India to showcase its xDrive all-wheel-drive technology in a rugged environment.

Having already experienced the wonders of BMW's xDrive technology as a passenger at the BMW Innovations Xpo back in September, it was time for us to take the wheel and try it ourselves on real, off-road conditions.

We arrived at the event venue, which was set up in the typical slick BMW style.

The off-road circuit was impressive as well. We were told that it was an abandoned construction site for a shopping mall, and BMW 'borrowed' the plot of land for the event.

A series of menacing challenges awaited us.

When we were finally allowed to go out on the circuit, we were given a choice of BMW X3, X5 or X6 models. There were plenty of opportunities to go round in all the cars.

The hill-climb looked daunting, but the xDrive-equipped cars tackled it with no sweat.

This sand bed obstacle near the end looked innocuous enough, but it was actually very tricky.

But overall, the cars all managed to pull through, and proved once again the strength of the BMW xDrive system.

It was most certainly an interesting experience, and it's nice to know that BMW's xDrive can easily get you out in sticky situations, should you need to.

Special thanks to BMW once again for the trip to India.

They didn't put the X1 in because it is a dismal failure of SUV. Oops, not an SUV but a slightly-elevated hatchback.
