The Alfa Romeo brand has not yet officially introduced the Tonale crossover, however, according to Autogaleria, the company leaked a video dedicated to the new product. Now the video has already been deleted, but the publication managed to take several screenshots with images of the new crossover and find out some of its technical parameters.
Judging by the photo, the new Alfa Romeo Tonale will retain the style of the 2019 concept of the same name, but the proportions of the serial crossover have changed somewhat. For example, the overhangs of the car body have become larger, and the silhouette has slightly stretched out. At the same time, the overall dimensions of the new Tonale have not yet been specified, but it is known that the car is based on the Jeep Compass platform.
In the interior of the Alfa Romeo Tonale, you can see a three-spoke steering wheel, a massive central tunnel with a compact climate control unit, and two screens. The dashboard display shows pointers that are made in an analog style.
Alfa Romeo Tonale will be based on hybrid powertrains based on a 1.5-liter turbo engine. Depending on the boost of the engine, they develop 130 or 160 hp, in both cases the unit is helped by a 48-volt starter-generator, which can add 20 hp. and 55 Nm of torque. There is also only one gearbox – it is a seven-speed “robot”, the novelty will have only front-wheel drive.
The Alfa Romeo Tonale crossover will receive an all-wheel drive system along with a rechargeable hybrid installation. The rotation of the rear wheels here will be handled by an electric motor, with which the return of both motors reaches 275 hp. The robotic box will be replaced with a 6-band “automatic”, and with the help of a 15.5-kilowatt battery, the Tonale crossover will be able to drive on electric power up to 80 km.
Alfa Romeo Tonale will also be available in non-electrified versions in some European car markets. For example, Tonale can get a 130-horsepower 1.6-liter diesel engine or a 2.0-liter supercharged four that develops 260 hp. When exactly the novelty will appear on sale, there is no information yet.
