Upcoming 2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale SUV belong to C segment compact SUV. It is named after Tonale mountain pass in Northern Italy. We’re talking about one of the most anticipated models on the market. We base this on the fact that only a few months have passed from concept to serial model. At some point we can say that it should bring a better reputation because sales of Giulia and Stelvio mode are going lower than expected.
We will see that the expectations list is realistic given that this segment is rather full. The competition is great Audi Q3, BMW X2, Volkswagen T-ROC or cheaper Nissan Qashqai and Seat Ateca.
2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale Concept
The body-building platform is borrowed from the Jeep Renegade. The concept looks modern and no major changes are expected when the final version arrive. The wheels on the concept are 21 inches and the front end has three-plus-three LED headlights.
Alfa Romeo Tonale Interior
As far as the cab is concerned, we do not expect much deviation from the concept. First of all think on driver centric dashboard with 10.3 inches touchscreen, 12.3 inches digital gauge cluster and circular air vents. From the news we can expect new software (mostly to provide better connectivity), steering wheel with mounted start button, backlit panels and Alcantara leather seats.
2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale Gasoline and Hybrid
The drive should consist of 2 petrol engines. Most likely it will be a turbocharged 1.3 L and 1.6 L MultiAir II gasoline engine. The diesel engine probably won’t be. The good news are announcement hybrid version. Looking at it we can expect something similar to the Jeep Renegade (236 horses). There we have a rear-mounted electric motor and a front-mounted petrol engine. An electric-only drive could be up to 30 miles.
Petrol engines need front-wheel drive, while the hybrid version delivers all-wheel drive. Of course, we expect the option of all-wheel drive for petrol aggregates.
Release Date and Price
The Italian car manufacturer represent Tonale concept in March 2019 at the Geneva Auto Show. It is due for sale in late 2020. Speculates about the price from £30,000 or $35,000. However still waiting official confirmation.
