The 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale is a subcompact luxury crossover SUV manufactured by Italian carmaker Alfa Romeo under the Stellantis brand. The Alfa Romeo Tonale was introduced in February 2022 and became the smallest SUV sold by the brand and the first new model introduced by the brand in six years. Tonale will compete in the market with fossil fuels Hyundai Ioniq, Ford Kuga as all-electric, and plug-in hybrid BMW X1. Tonale, who is in the Stellantis family, has every reason to create an award-winning electric car.
The Alfa Romeo Tonale was developed during the ownership of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and is equipped with a severely modified version of the SCCS crossover platform in conjunction with the Jeep Compass. Tonale is also the first Alfa Romeo to be equipped with an optional plug-in hybrid. All of Tonale’s models are equipped with a 12.3-inch digital infotainment cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment screen, all in the Uconnect 5 software suite that supports Amazon Alexa works. In addition, Tonale comes with NFT, which records and stores information about the car’s life cycle. According to Alfa Romeo, NFT will issue a certificate to help maintain the car’s residual value. The North American version will be released in 2023 with a 2.0-liter gasoline turbo engine and a 1.3-liter plug-in hybrid engine variant.
The 2023 Tonale concept was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. Alfa Tonale has a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) transmission system from Jeep Renegade, with a petrol engine at the front and an electric motor at the rear. The Tonale Alfa Romeo has a D.N.A driving selector: two power modes for maximum performance, a natural mode for daily use, and an Advanced Efficiency setting that uses only an electric motor. Thee-mozione button on the touch screen further adjusts the throttle setting, braking response, and steering. The front of the car has three LED headlights reminiscent of those of the SZ and Brera.
2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale : Interior
Inside, the Tonale’s interior quality is like the premium brand. Tonale reinforces such improvements with a blend of aluminum, vegan leather, and synthetic suede Alcantara. The interior is designed for and around passengers, so the opportunity to try out Tonale is waiting for plenty of space and convenience. The Alfa Romeo Tonale 2023 model featured a Uconnect, the latest version of the Alpha info package built on the Android operating system, and has some great connected features that make it even more appealing to younger audiences. Alpha points out that this is a sign of his sporting legacy, but we can’t help but feel that a simpler digital speed and rotation display is more suited to the age of the target customer.
With a wireless connection to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the entire system is updated remotely, which eliminates the need to go to the dealer or get confused with USB flash drives. The Android-based system also has Alexa Auto, which brings a familiar digital assistant to the car. Although user and driver profiles are separated, this is a smart move. This allows parents to maintain their audio preferences when driving alone, meaning children’s favorite Peppa Pig hits can sit on a different profile. In addition, the choice of driver’s seat, wing window, and climate do not affect the profile of children.
