Chassis & Suspension
A new dimension in driving dynamics
The ALPINA Sport Suspension, with two-axle air springs, a finely-balanced damper set-up and Active Roll Stabilization, offers a wide variety of driving experiences ranging from plush ride comfort to advanced, race-inspired dynamics. The two-axle air suspension allows for a remarkable and noticeable 40 mm (1.6“) change in ride height, depending on driving situation and Mode selection. The resulting lower centre of gravity has a significant positive effect on dynamic handling and road holding. An ALPINA specific dome-bulkhead strut and reinforced torsion struts increase body rigidity
The Integral Active Steering, standard on the new BMW ALPINA XB7, offers direct steering response with exceptional feedback and improves overall agility. The driver can choose from three steering modes: COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+. While in COMFORT mode the focus is on smooth directional stability and safety at higher speeds while the SPORT mode aims to maximize responsiveness.
