2020 ALPINA B3 Touring - Is This The Perfect Road Car?

  • Published on Month ago

    Runtime: 19:50

    With the brand new ALPINA B3 the Germans have outdone themselves once again. The new model available in both Touring and Sedan body styles was handed to us to experience the ultimate daily that not only is what we all want, but more importantly we all really need.

    The B3 offers a unique combination of technical highlights, which are not yet available via their friends at BMW (M). The BMW M3 Touring is still in development and won’t arrive until 2022. Until then, the B3 Touring will have a unique position of being the only estate model carrying the S58 M-power 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight-six engine from the M3, M4, X3 M and X4 M.
    Connected to a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox, mechanical limited-slip rear differential and rear-wheel biased xDrive system, the engine produces 462 hp at the top end and an astonishing 730 Nm from about 2,500 rpm onwards.

    The combination of these features lets you catapult the B3 from zero to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds in the Sedan and 3.9 seconds in the Touring. In 13.4 seconds you get to 200 km/h (Sedan), and 13.9 (Touring). More importantly, this is faster than the recently released M3 and M3 Competition models.

    The top speed is set at 303 km/h for the Sedan and 300 km/h for the Touring, which are the highest top speeds among their competitors. Specific aerodynamic changes to the bodywork make sure that these top speeds can be reached with ease.

Honestly this is pointless if you don’t include any actual driving impressions...

The downside is the resale valve of these cars, when it’s trade in time the B3 is based on the 340 model, you loose a massive chunk of money because of this, that’s why I sell mine privately every time!

There is a problem with the name. "Alpina" sounds like the designation of the next Suzuki 1.3 litre hatchback.

@BMWBLOG I love the 3.0 CSL Hommage! They should do a more normal looking version of the Hommage. In General they should go back to sharknose design!😉

@BMWBlog was the ride comfort in comfort plus really that great? How would it compare to say a new 7 series which rides on air suspension? Thanks

Finally a decent review of an Alpina. There’s about ten if I’m lucky in English, have you tried the B5 touring as I like the look of them as I currently drive a big estate ( I not mention the brand as it’s not worth the abuse😉)

Having test driven one of Sytner’s U.K. demonstrators, but never having driven a 7, I can partially answer your question. The damping manages to combine barely any body roll with a smooth ride to a degree I haven’t experience in any other car. There are smoother riding cars and there are sharper handling cars but I suspect there are few, if any cars that combine good handling and cosseting damping so well. Having said that the ride is not akin to a magic carpet and you can definitely feel every rut in the road through your arse: it’s just that the ruts don’t crash through the cabin or upset the car. The ride is smoother than that of an M340i on which the car is based and I have driven. Bear in mind though I’m biased as my B3 is on order :)

I just don’t get the Alpina wheels. Not for me. The tail pipes and logo on the front spoiler looks like its been pimped up in Southend.

Iconic wheels. Old school customers love them. We do too

All these are Alpina's signature for merely four decades. And in my opinion they still look better than the stock BMW design.

462hp is to slow - I want the same hp as the Sedan in production that pushes out 620hp.
