2019 BMW Alpina B6 Interior and Cargo

BMW Alpina B6 Interior & Cargo Rating

2019 Alpina B6 Interior

The basic Gran Coupe interior is now a generation behind the cabins in the current 5 Series and new X5, but it is actually one of BMW's more distinctive interiors. In Alpina B6 form it's even more lavish - thanks to more standard features and higher-quality materials. Low-set seats and a rear seat sculpted for two make it feel cozy and inviting, although headroom is at a premium at the back. BMW's iDrive system remains one of the best offerings on the market and makes accessing the B6's navigation and connectivity features easy and fast. Alpina badging and a unique set of blue-hued gauges with red needles are visual reminders that you're at the helm of one of the rarest luxury cars available.

Seating and Interior Space

While the B6 does have seating for five passengers, it's best thought of as a 4+1 as the middle rear-seat passenger has little legroom with the center console running all the way through from the front to the rear seat. Space for the driver and front-seat passenger are good, although ingress and egress require a little extra effort due to the B6's low stance. Rear legroom is acceptable, but six-footers will struggle with a limited amount of headroom due to that sloping roofline. The seats themselves are comfortable and supportive.

Interior Colors and Materials

A combination of BMW and Alpina-specific interior trim and color options ensure that there is a myriad of possibilities when customizing the B6 interior. Standard interior material is Nappa leather in a choice of four colors: Black, Cognac/Black, Ivory White/Black, and Vermilion Red. Optional is BMW's Merino leather upholstery at a $3,500 premium in a choice of six shades: Amaro Brown, Canyon Brown, Champagne, Opal White, Opal White/Amaro Brown and Platinum/Black.

Alpina offers its own exclusive interior trim options, with Myrtle Wood trim being one of the more flamboyant of them. It does, however, suit the generally more extrovert Alpina character. Alpina Piano Black is also available, while the more conservative range of BMW wood and aluminum trims can also be specified. The steering wheel is leather-wrapped and features parallel blue and green stitching, an Alpina tradition.

2019 Alpina B6 Trunk and Cargo Space

With around 16 cubic feet of space, the B6 Alpina's trunk capacity is enough for two medium-sized suitcases and some smaller soft items, although there is a high loading lip so hoisting heavier items will take a bit more effort. Folding down the rear seats is easy enough using levers mounted in the trunk. The clean cabin design is more a case of form over function, so small-item storage is rather limited.

2019 Alpina B6 Infotainment and Features


A full house of comfort and convenience features is expected at this price point, and the B6 Alpina doesn't disappoint. On the standard equipment list is four-zone climate control, front seats with heating that are extensively power-adjustable with 4-way lumbar support, memory settings for the front seats, keyless ignition and entry, a power-adjustable steering wheel and classy ambient lighting. Safety equipment includes parking sensors front and rear, a backup camera and cruise control. Four distinctive packages are optionally available and, if money is no object, you can drive out of the showroom with virtually every available bell and whistle. Night vision, a head-up display, ventilated seats and ceramic-trimmed controls are all available.


As on the regular Gran Coupe, the B6 Alpina benefits from BMW's superb iDrive interface with its 10.2-inch display. The system is well-regarded for its sharp graphics and rapid responses - it also helps that it can be controlled either via the touchpad or the touchscreen. For 2019, Apple CarPlay integration is standard, but you'll need to pay extra to use it after the first year. Android Auto still remains absent from every BMW's spec sheet. Other than that, all of the expected connectivity and infotainment features are fitted: HD and satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack, Bluetooth phone and audio, navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, USB ports and wireless charging for your mobile phone are all standard. The audio system is a 16-speaker Harman Kardon unit, while an even more impressive Bang & Olufsen system can be added as an option for $3,700.
