Review 

The 2021 BMW Alpina XB7 is a sizeable three-row SUV that adds a layer of extravagance to BMW’s otherwise understated vehicle. Most of it starts under the hood, with the X7’s 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 receiving a little more love from the segment than it usually does. The XB7 produces 612 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. The XB7’s regular air springs drop 0.8 inches in Sport mode, while Sport Plus drops it another 0.8 inches lower to the ground. At speeds over 155 mph, it immediately lowers the entire 1.6 inches, irrespective of mode.

The automaker has gone to great lengths to make the XB7 as secure as possible by including the most cutting-edge driver assistance technology ever seen on a BMW. Despite the lack of NHTSA and IIHS scores, the Alpina badge ensures no cost is spared in making the ride safe and secure.

The XB7 essentially represents the top of the X7 range in the absence of an X7 M. The XB7 will be designed alongside regular-grade X7s at BMW’s Spartanburg plant in South Carolina and offered alongside the current B7 sedan by BMW dealers in the US and Canada.

The quad chromed tips of the exhaust protrude from a redesigned bumper, part of a series of subtle but efficient visual tweaks that help keep the X7’s extended profile lower to the ground. The regular wheels are 21 inches, with the Alpina-spec 23-inch monsters available as an option.

2021 BMW ALPINA XB7 Interior

The ALPINA XB7 interior has received a few updates, including open-pore wood on the dash, an abundance of crystal highlights on the shifter and rotary controller, and plenty of Alpina badges strewn about. Even your backseat passengers won’t be able to tell if you paid extra for this one.

The ride in Sport Plus remains compliant even when the suspension is lowered to its lowest setting. The dampers are adjusted to their firmest setting, as evidenced by some strategic use of Bilster Berg’s serrated curbing. Comfort and high-speed stability have often been prioritized in Alpina models over the rock-hard suspension that German automakers frequently equate with sporting ambitions. 

The cabin is illuminated by ambient lighting and a large panoramic sunroof in the Anthracite Alacantara headliner that lets in plenty of natural light. While the regular X7 has bench seats in the second row, the Alpina XB7 provides the captain’s seats with heating in the second row as an alternative. This decrease in seating capacity allows for more room for the two passengers, seated like kings on their comfortable thrones.

Is buying a used Alpina XB7 a good idea?

The 2021 BMW Alpina XB7 is the first instance the vehicle has been seen since its debut in May 2020. You won’t be able to find a used one in the market for at least the next two years, as it’s set to enter dealerships between December 2020 and January 2021. That said, when it does enter the market, it will almost certainly be dirt cheap compared to a new one since it belongs to the elite class of vehicles that depreciates dramatically over time.
