Alfa Romeo Tonale: Everything we know so far
Further pictures of the Alfa Romeo Tonale have been shown ahead of the car’s launch later this year.
Here’s what we know so far about Alfa’s upcoming crossover.
Alfa Romeo Tonale exterior
Sitting below the Stelvio – both literally and metaphorically – the Tonale borrows styling cues from Alfas both old and new, with the iconic shield grille, classic ‘telephone dial’ alloy wheels marking it out from the pack. Slimline wing mirrors with an embossed Italian flag further differentiate it.
The Tonale concept was previously unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. Like the Stelvio, it’s fair to say the PHEV crossover will likely have a broader appeal among new car customers as it aims to take on VW Group products like the Seat Arona and VW T-Cross.
A slim set of headlights and pop-out door handles also feature. How much the production car will mirror the striking looks remains to be seen, although Alfa has a history of making models very similar to its production models – remember the SZ and Brera?
Alfa Romeo Tonale interior
The picture you see here isn’t the finished production model, but you can see the interior features a vivid 12.3in digital driver display along with a 10in touchscreen infotainment system.
Alfa’s trademark interior detailing is present throughout, with sculpted air vents that incorporate their control panel and a plush look offering something different to its competitors. The steering wheel has a retro look to it, incorporating a glossy black design with a brushed aluminium trim pieces.
Alfa Romeo Tonale engines
The Tonale will feature a plug-in hybrid model as well as traditional petrol engines. The PHEV will likely borrow technology from the Jeep Renegade, meaning the petrol engine powers the front wheels, while electric motors offer assistance at the rear. It’ll probably have an electric range of around 30 miles and produce over 200hp, although specs are to be confirmed.
Alfa Romeo Tonale release date
Set to get a list price of around £35,000 the Tonale will be revealed in full production form at some stage this year. It’s already picking up awards such as the popular vote of What Car? Car of the Year 2021.
We’ll bring you the full lowdown when the car is revealed.
