Return to life or return to life? Alfa Romeo will present a new SUV
Referring to official Alfa Romeo news, Alfa Romeo will introduce a plethora of models this year, including facelifted Stelvio mid-range model already on sale in China and latest Tonale compact SUV. In addition to these SUVs for everyday use, new Hyper Car will also be launched as a spiritual continuation of legendary Tipo 33 and will be sold in limited quantities.
Among two SUVs that Alfa Romeo will launch, Tonale is newest compact SUV. It shares a common platform with models from several brands of Stellantis group. Both Jeep and Dodge have released models on this platform. Although Tonale also has many shadows of models on same platform, exterior design still continues consistent Alfa Romeo characteristics. Barring major changes to general outline, you can still see it as an Alfa Romeo model at a glance. . The layout of light group is very similar to previous Zagato concept car. The interior of headlights integrated into front has rich details, and light bar also has ample sense of future.
From side, you can see body's relatively compact proportions, while muscular lines are more visible. The "exclusive" design of Alfa Romeo wheels also makes side view full of tension.
The piercing taillight echoes front of car. The length of LED strip is exaggerated. Combined with Alfa Romeo logo, this is most beautiful tail design among current models on this platform.
In terms of interior design, Tonale still uses traditional cabin layout, even shifter is traditional mechanical, with little desire for technology. However, multimedia configuration is relatively complete, and floating central control screen is also a relatively mainstream configuration at present. In addition, the arrow instrument panel is more expressive in terms of movement.
In terms of power, Tonale offers many different power options, but main ones will be petrol version and hybrid version. The petrol version is expected to be powered by a 2.0T engine with a maximum output of 265 horsepower. Tonale also offers a plug-in hybrid version with a combined maximum system output of 285 horsepower and a pure-electric range of 80 km.
Alfa Romeo still does not abandon domestic market. With resources of Stellantis Group, recently launched Tonale compact SUV will also be a key model for domestic market this year. In addition to mainstream models, new supercar is also worth waiting for. According to information previously released by foreign media, new car will be a hypercar with a mid-range rear-wheel drive layout. power will exceed 700 horsepower and it will have a carbon fiber frame. Performance is to be expected.
