The all-new 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale has been revealed a few days ago with very seductive styling. The forthcoming SUV features attractive design language accentuated by Alfa Romeo’s signature and familiar sharp-nosed face. Definitely, this model should lure many buyers. The manufacturer also promises that it’ll provide a very quiet ride thanks to a fully independent suspension and available adaptive dampers.
We got information that there would be either a standard 256-hp turbo-four option to choose or a more powerful plug-in-hybrid powertrain with 30 miles of estimated all-electric range. The Tonale sales will most likely start at the end of summer, and it will compete with models such as the BMW X1, the Mercedes-Benz GLA, and the Volvo XC40.
2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Design
The recently revealed 2023 Alfa Romeo shares obvious DNA with its larger brother Stelvio. Moreover, according to Alfa, the Tonale is about 6 inches shorter in length and 3 inches shorter in height than the Stelvio.
This SUV looks attractive, and it features a new Alfa shield grille that makes the hood look long. It also comes with stylish LED headlights and odd sharply-raked rear glass similar to the one that we saw on the Porsche Macan model. The rear end is no less attractive, and it hosts very visible taillights.
First Look Inside the Cabin
Inside, the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale looks handsome and roomy. The new SUV is capable of fitting five passengers in two rows, offering great headroom and legroom. As the Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan and the Stelvio SUV, the forthcoming Tonale comes with the same dashboard.
It features as standard a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and its three-spoke steering wheel. Overall, the interior is mixed up with an aluminum trim as well as leather and microsuede surfaces. Anyway, the Tonale is also technology rich, featuring a standard 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as wireless phone charging.
2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Engine
Under the hood of the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale, buyers will get an opportunity to choose two distinct engine options. The first engine uses a turbo 2.0-liter inline-four that makes 256 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The mentioned engine comes standard with all-wheel drive setup, and it pairs a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The optional plug-in hybrid is more powerful thanks to a 1.3-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor mounted on the rear axle, Together, they generate a combined 272 horses using all-wheel drive. However, unlike the base model, this one uses a six-speed automatic transmission and 15.5-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Alfa claims that Tonale can provide over 30 miles of electric-only driving range.
2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Release Date, Price
The release date of the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale is set for this year, and we believe it will be available for purchase at the end of summer. As far as we know, the manufacturer will offer the new Tonale in three trim levels.
The basic trim Sprint should start at 38,000, TI trim at $43,000, and the most expensive Veloce at $48,000. With those prices, the Tonale costs more than the BMW X1, the Mercedes-Benz GLA250, and the Volvo XC40.
