BMW

BMW has actually been adding all-wheel drive to some of its vehicles since the late 1980s, but it wasn't until recently that the Bavarian automaker really started pushing its optional drivetrain system. xDrive is a rear-biased electronically-controlled all-wheel drive setup that can send up to 50 percent of the vehicle's power to the front wheels when wheel slip is detected. xDrive is available on at least one model in every BMW range except for the 1 Series and Z4.
