"Crabbing" on full wheel lock - update dealer fix

Just picked up a 2012 X5 3.5i and noticed that on slow speed right or left hard turn the car " crabs" . I know some AWD SUVs do this, but just traded in a 2006 X5 3.0i with 140k miles and it never did this. 2012 has 19" wheels and 2006 had 17" would that make a difference? Anyone else have this? Is there way to minimize or eliminate?
