The forthcoming 2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale will go on sale later this year. It is a small crossover and it is also the first company’s crossover to use a plug-in hybrid system. Based on the concept, the Tonale version caused a huge splash on its debut. Besides the hybrid setup, Tonale looks very handsome and stylish.
Moreover, it comes with a luxurious cabin that looks both unique and upscale. The main rivals are BMW X1, Audi Q3, and Mercedes-Benz GLA. The sales will start around November and the price will start at around $40,000.
Alfa Romeo Tonale Design
The all-new 2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale will look extremely modern and stylish. It is a small handsome crossover that will ride on the CMP platform. The same architecture currently underpins models such as DS 3 Crossback and Opel Corsa. The reason why Alfa Romeo has chosen this platform is that it can accommodate a hybrid system. That includes a battery pack and electric motors. Moreover, don’t be surprised if the Italian manufacturer releases the Tonale EV variant in the next two or three years.
At its reveal, Alfa Romeo said that the Tonale model will wear the brand’s recognizable design language. For that reason, we don’t expect much surprises at all. Tonale looks truly beautiful with its gorgeous shape and compact dimensions. Tonale will also offer hidden door handles, tall-seating taillights and pull-out front door handles.
Interior Looks Amazing
On the inside, new 2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale will offer a lot of tech goodies. The cabin looks upright and very modern, no less than we expect whatsoever. Tonale will feature interesting interior design with unique elements and various high-tech amenities. For instance, the dashboard has been finished in clean design and it sports a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.
New Tonale will also offer a large 10.3-inch infotainment display with unique “Alfista” content. Moreover, the “Paddock” system is available too. Comfort is at the admirable level and the only bad thing is a lack of space. The battery pack and electric motor are using plenty of space so Tonale won’t be roomy as you think.
Plug-In Hybrid Specs
The upcoming 2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale will deploy a plug-in hybrid setup. However, not all of the details are available at the moment. We are still waiting for the Italian manufacturer to release official info about the vehicle’s performance. On the other hand, many reliable reports are suggesting a standard front-wheel-drive system. That means the AWD setup is optional.
This compact crossover will arrive with a rear-mounted electric motor that will assist the internal combustion engine upfront. Speaking of which, Tonale comes with a four-cylinder gasoline engine that will deliver high performances. According to the latest rumors, Tonale will deliver around 31 miles of all-electric driving range.
2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale Price and Release Date
The price of the 2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale should start at around $40,000 or slightly below that. We are still waiting for Alfa Romeo to release details about trim levels, performances, and probably special editions. The sales will start later this year but some other markets will have to wait a little bit longer.
