Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

High-performance large luxury sedans are a special breed, pairing extremes of both acceleration and refinement in the hunt for ultimate exclusivity. Even in this small, rigorously competitive group of vehicles, the 2019 BMW Alpina B7 is a standout.A one-year subscription of Apple CarPlay support comes standard.The active safety features previously available in the Driving Assistance package are now standard.

Pros
Smooth yet ridiculous acceleration
Prestige and exclusivity from low volume and overall distinctiveness
Opulent and spacious back seats

Cons
Subscription-based Apple CarPlay support
Rear seats don't fold down
Only available in just one configuration

The Armada gets a significant makeover for 2021, starting with a squarer front end featuring prominent headlights. The design revisions reach out back, too, with a new bumper and taillights that are connected by a continuous trim piece. There's also a newly available Midnight Edition with blacked-out trim. Inside, Nissan redesigned the center stack and added a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay.

PROS
Serenely quiet and comfy,
smooth,
potent powertrain,
pillowy ride.

CONS
Dreadful fuel economy,
some dated interior elements,
wanders at highway speeds.

Strong for towing
Good safety features

CONS
Gas guzzler
Third row for kids only
Gets expensive
