The 2018 BMW Alpina B6 Gran Coupe belongs to the contemporary set of sloped-roof four-doors, combining the sporty look of a luxury coupe with the convenience of a sedan. As one of two limited-production models under BMW's Alpina sub-brand, the B6 comes very well equipped, though a few other packages and stand-alone options are available for those who want to further enhance cabin comfort with ventilated seats or load up on safety-enhancing driver aids.
You can think of Alpina B6 Gran Coupe as a high-end trim of BMW's 6 Series Gran Coupe. And by high-end, it's not just features and luxury the B6 is stuffed with. Under the hood sits a very robust 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 600 horsepower. This pairs to an an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels. This is the only way the B6 comes, though we don't imagine BMW receives many complaints.
The Alpina B6 sports a unique styling treatment along with a host of other standard features including 20-inch wheels with summer performance tires, an adaptive sport-tuned suspension, adaptive LED headlights and foglights, four-zone automatic climate control, heated 16-way power front seats, a 10.2-inch iDrive infotainment system, 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound system and an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, just to name a few highlights.
The three option packages for the Alpina B6 include the luxury enhancing Executive package as well as two level of Driver Assistance packages, bundling a number of active driving/parking aids together. There are stand-alone options for upgraded leather upholstery and wood trim, and a higher-fidelity Bang & Olufsen sound system, though one we'd recommend for iPhone users is Apple CarPlay for better access and control of your phone's media library.
From a base cost standpoint, the Alpina B6 sits right in the middle of its closest competitors — there are some that are less expensive, yet it isn't the priciest of the group either. Engine output, all-wheel drive and features are also quite comparable across the board, so it'll likely come down to personal preference. You can see exactly how the Alpina B6 stacks up against others in the class by using all the tools available right here on Edmunds.

Vehicle xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A)
Review The Alpina B6 is a top of the line automobile for comfort and handling. The acceleration is breath-taking and makes it fun to drive. It is extremely quiet, yet has a nice classy roar when it takes off! In my life, I've had a Ford Expedition, a Plymouth Horizon (my first car), an Oldsmobile, a Buick, a Jeep, a BMW X3, and a Porsche Cayenne Turbo. This BMW Alpina B6 is head and shoulders above all of them. It is comfortable and fun at the same time! I expected it not to handle in the snow and ice as well as the SUV's I've had -- well, it certainly was different than I've experienced before. The Alpina actually handles better! I don't know what they did to the all-wheel drive, but they did it right. The Alpina holds the road like a champ and takes the corners like a super-star!
