ALPINA Sport Suspension

The ALPINA driving experience is unique, best characterised as effortless. The well balanced chassis and suspension set-up plays a central role, providing a superior ride comfort and sharpened dynamics at the same time.

The Driving Experience Control switch which controls the electronically adjustable dampers both in compression and rebound, enables the driver to select a preferred mode ranging from COMFORT+ to SPORT+. ALPINA specific Sport Springs are shorter and stiffer, enhancing handling and dynamics further by lowering the centre of gravity.

Ultra-high performance handling

Ultra-high performance tyres from Pirelli are responsible for perfect road holding and grip. Both the 20” and the 22” Pirelli P Zero with ALP labelling have been explicitly developed in accordance to ALPINA’s requirements with regards to dynamics and comfort. Combining motorsport technology with a flat shoulder contour and an innovative tread pattern facilitates high lateral loads and precise steering feeling without compromising wet handling.

High performance brakes

Designed to match the performance of the BMW ALPINA XD3, the brake system incorporates four-piston fixed brake callipers with Ø 395 mm discs at the front and floating brake callipers with Ø 370 mm discs at the rear. A high-performance brake system is optionally available – this combines lightweight drilled composite discs measuring Ø 395 mm at the front and Ø 398 mm at the rear with sport-spec brake pads for even more fading resistance under very high loads (Attention: sport-spec brake pads and drilled brake discs can lead to increased brake noise or brake vibration).

The disclosed fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are measured according to WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) and converted to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) for comparison purposes. Depending on your country, vehicle related taxes or other duties may be based on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data which differs from that shown here.

Further information on specific fuel consumption and specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is given in „Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen” which can be obtained free of charge at all points of sale and from the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Helmut-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen.


Determined on the basis of the measured CO2 emissions taking into account the mass of the vehicle.
