Of last year's updates, the XB7's new headlight design is the most obvious. The split-headlight design gives the SUV's front end a menacing, determined look, and also draws the eye outwards. These headlights gain genuine Swarovski crystals this year that create multi-faceted light refractions. The kidney grill is illuminated and while some may find the waterfall lighting signature a little gimmicky, it's certainly one way of capturing attention. The nose also gets the Alpina front apron that sets it apart from regular X7 models, while the rear end shows off the Alpina design housing four oval tailpipes. A two-part panoramic moonroof is standard, while all exterior lighting is of the LED variety. The big beauty rolls on 23-inch Alpina Classic wheels wrapped in performance non-run-flat tires.
Dimensions for the BMW Alpina XB7 start with a 122.2-inch wheelbase with a body that is 203.9 inches in length atop it. The XB7 stands 70.7 inches high and will measure 87.3 inches in width, including the mirrors. Despite having a lower center of gravity, the XB7 has 8.4 inches of ground clearance.
Naturally heavy, the Alpina XB7 tips the scales at almost 6,000 pounds with a curb weight of 5,986 lbs.

There are many exterior colors to choose from for the 2024 Alpina XB7, including three special hues at $1,950 each. These are Ametrin, Dravit Grey, and Tanzanite Blue II metallics. The rest of the palette is comprised of no-cost options with staples like Alpina Blue, Skyscraper Grey, Manhattan Green, Marina Bay Blue, Mineral White, Black Sapphire, Carbon Black, and, of course, Alpine White. Signature blue calipers stand out when paired with lighter shades.
The signature hue of Alpina Blue is hard to miss, but we like how the lighter colors show off the signature blue brake calipers and Alpina wheel center caps.
All Alpina XB7 models come with a two-pane panoramic moonroof that has power tilt-and-slide functionality.
The classic Alpina wheels are 23-inch items that can come standard, but you can opt for 21-inch wheels if you'd like.
