Romanian magazine ProMotor takes on the challenge to climb a snowy mountain aboard the BMW 120d xDrive. But it’s the small compact BMW enough to accomplish the daring task? Maybe, but just in case, the folks at ProMotor partnered up with Claudiu David, a WRC Romanian pilot, as well as one of the most talented BMW drivers in the BMW Driving Experience program.

BMW 120d xDrive is powered by a four-cylinder 2.0 liter diesel engine developing 184 horsepower and 380Nm of torque — 6.7bhp and 30Nm more than the previous engine. Despite the small displacement, the 120d sprints from 0-62mph in 7.2 seconds and has a top speed of 142mph.


Over 20 people were involved in the making of this video, so let’s see how it came out.
