The study of the Alfa Romeo Tonale gave the first look at the second SUV from the Italians in 2019. We know that about the market launch, interior, and price!
With the Alfa Romeo Tonale A smaller SUV will be added to the X3 competitor Stelvio from September. A leak probably shows the production model, which adopts the design of the study in a slightly weakened form. Visually, the model called CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle) by Alfa impresses with its restraint. The body shuts down spectacular details. The coupé-like sideline pays homage to the Giulia GT Junior of the 1970s, and the concept car’s 21-inch light-alloy wheels have the typical Alfa dial design.
The front is adorned by the “Scudetto” radiator grille, which is flanked by narrow headlights. The light design of the study brings back memories of the two Alfa coupés SZ and Brera. However, the leaked images do not provide any information as to what extent the production model takes over the light signature for the headlights. The rear of the presumed production version of the Alfa Romeo Tonale is also marked by a light band that is supposed to evoke associations with the signature of an artist.

The Alfa Romeo Tonale is set to celebrate its market launch in 2021. The new compact SUV is technically based on the Jeep Compass. In addition to a 180 hp 1.3-liter four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine, you can expect a 140 or 170 hp 2.0-liter turbo diesel. The most powerful version is likely to be the plug-in hybrid with 240 hp, which Jeep goes by the name 4xe. A nine-speed automatic system will be available on request.
The lines of the exterior continue in the interior of the compact SUV. The materials of the study are rich in contrast: cold metal meets warm leather or Alcantara. Illuminated panels create a pleasant atmosphere and bathe the interior in atmospheric light. The fittings are geared towards the driver. The concept car has two large displays with a diagonal of 12.3 inches and 10.25 inches.
The compact SUV inherited its name from an Alpine pass that is not far from the Passo di Stelvio, the eponymous pass of the larger Alfa SUV. There is currently no price for the Alfa Romeo Tonale. However, it should be based on the Jeep Compass, which is available for 26,400 euros (as of January 2021).
