From the revealed concept we know that the Tonale has clean and defined body lines, aggressive and squinty lighting, signature grille and of course, swoopy roofline. Alfa Romeo fans are likely to recognize that the Tonale is an Alfa Romeo immediately.
The exterior of the upcoming Tonale is similar to the current Stelvio. There are differences, of course, but the similarities are many. One can recognize that the Tonale is related to the Stelvio.
For the interior, the interior has a modern design. Based on the revealed concept, there are lots of Alcantara and leather surfaces inside. The revealed concept has a layout that accommodates four passengers. Being a crossover, it shouldn’t be surprising if the Tonale turns out to have a cabin option for five passengers when it is released.
As for the entertainment system, the SUV will be equipped with a 12.3-inch screen with a new infotainment system and other new technologies that enhance its performance.
Reports suggest that the Alfa Romeo Tonale will be powered by the same engine that powers Jeep Renegade. That means, the 2020 Tonale will be powered by a 1.3L, petrol engine with a plug-in hybrid system. This engine is estimated to be able to generate up to 240 horsepower with less than seven seconds for its 0 to 60 sprint.
There is a very good chance that Alfa Romeo will enable plug-in hybrid, hybrid as well as E-Booster option for the upcoming Tonale. Alfa Rome has a five-year plan to electrify its vehicles. More likely than not, the 2020 Tonale is included in this plan. It wouldn’t be surprising at all if the Tonale turns out to be Alfa Romeo’s first step toward electric vehicles.
