The first Alpina SUV will hit the US, while updated versions of the Mini Countryman and BMW 5 Series have been released

BMW recently celebrated its 100th Annual General Meeting, which was the very first to be held virtually. Despite referring to 2019 and 2020 as challenging years, and stressing the difficulties of the current situation due to the pandemic, the company was eager to look ahead. 

It has recently launched three vehicles: an updated 5 Series, an updated Mini Countryman, and a brand new Alpina XB7.

The XB7 is the first SUV made specifically for the US market coming under the Alpina marque. It is based on BMW’s X7, and will sit alongside the B7 sedan in Alpina’s line-up.
