BMW Alpina XD3 and XD4: The most elegant and exclusive alternative to the BMW X3 and X4 M


When barely a day has passed since the premiere of the new BMW X3 and X4 Alpina presents its own version with up to 394 hp in two diesel versions


Just 24 hours ago BMW was presented with a barrage of novelties that include the new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé as well as the new BMW X3 andX4 together with their corresponding sports versions X3 M andX4 M, resulting in a compact SUV range that is complete from day one.


However, there was still an even more special version to come, and he did it only one day later. And now it is Alpina that shows us its own versions of the X3 and X4, which come with the particular formula of the German firm with the names of XD3 and XD4. Two new models take a new step in the new stage of a closer relationship with BMW, as well demonstrated with the recent BMW Alpina B8 Gran Coupé in which the BMW insignia and name have become present in its range.


Classy performance


And as is customary in the brand, we find certain aesthetic modifications that give a much more elegant and exclusive appearance to the two compact BMW SUVs. Specifically, the improvements affect the front, with a silver grille and a sporty bumper where the Alpina name is not missing, while in the rear we find a new diffuser accompanied by the traditional quadruple oval exhaust outlet and two sports spoilers above and below. of the rear window. The icing on the cake is as always a 20-inch or 22- inch silver multi-spoke wheels as an option.


The interior also receives its corresponding ratio of distinction with a new level of personalization that will allow each customer to choose the finish of the seams and embroidery, reliefs, and trims.


At a mechanical level, as Alpina has used to us, we find two mechanics, in this case, both diesel, although the arrival of gasoline versions in the future as the company usually does would not be ruled out. In this case, we have a 3.0-liter, six-cylinder quad-turbo engine that offers 394 hp of power and 800 Nm of maximum torque, resulting in a 0 to 100 km / h in 4.6 seconds, while the top speed stands at 267.15 km / h for the XD3 and 268.76 km / h for the XD4.


The second option is also a 3.0-liter and six-cylinder although in this case Biturbo and accompanied by light hybridization to offer 354 CV and 730 Nm of maximum torque, enough to boast of a 0 to 100 km / h not too far from the other version, with 4.9 seconds, and a top speed of 254 km / h.


They will arrive in November


In addition to all this, the Alpina XD4 and XD3 arrive with a new specific calibration for adaptive dampers, which place the car closer to the dream and which are also accompanied by stiffer springs, an improved variable sports steering, and a high brake system. performance that can also be equipped with perforated discs.


These two models will begin to be delivered in Europe from November with prices of 85,900 euros for the BMW Alpina XD3 and about 89,100 euros for the BMW Alpina XD4.
