    Alfa Romeo Tonale: La Metamorfosi
    08/02/2022


    • Tonale marks the metamorphosis of Alfa Romeo, looking ahead to a new era of connectivity and electrification
    • Unmistakably Italian design, faithful to the concept from which it originates
    • State-of-the-art technology, software and electrification systems created to serve the brand's DNA aimed at enhancing the driving experience, the customer experience and at protecting residual value.
    • Made in Italy, at the revamped Giambattista Vico plant in Pomigliano d’Arco, one of the most advanced production plant in the automotive industry
    • A world exclusive, Tonale is the first car on the market equipped with a NFT (non-fungible token) digital certificate
    • An all-new infotainment system, with two large Full TFT screens totalling 22.5-inches designed to offer over-the-air updates and integration with Amazon Alexa
    • Two levels of electrification – hybrid and plug-in Hybrid Q4, developed to guarantee best-in-class performance
    • New 48-volt hybrid propulsion system can propel the wheels even when the internal combustion engine is turned off
    • The 275hp plug-in hybrid Q4 version with Q4 all-wheel drive has an expected electric range of up to 80 km* in the city cycle


    Alfa Romeo presents the new Tonale, the model that marks the brand’s metamorphosis while remaining true to its DNA of Italian sportiness since 1910. With the all-new Tonale, a radical evolution is taking place at Alfa Romeo which is looking ahead to a new era of connectivity and electrification.

    DESIGN: TRUE TO THE CONCEPT CAR, ITALIAN AND UNMISTAKABLY ALFA ROMEO


    • True to the design of the concept car from which it originates
    • Innovative ‘3+3’ headlights and sine-curve rear light clusters, for an unmistakable light signature
    • Traditional Alfa Romeo GT Line runs from the rear to the headlights
    • Alloy wheel design recalls the concept of the ‘telephone dial’
    • The interior design is inspired by the Alfa Romeo racing heritage, focusing on the driver as well as on the comfort of their passengers
    • Telescopic instrument panel, Alfa Romeo stylistic matrix, and 3-spoke sports steering wheel with aluminium shift paddles provide an immersive, welcoming and dynamic interior


    The definitive design of the Tonale is faithful to the concept car from which it draws its origins, courtesy of the remarkable work done at the Centro Stile Alfa Romeo.

    The Alfa Romeo Tonale offers a distinctive, sensual and forward-looking design, extolling new stylistic canons destined to remain as points of reference in the development of the future Alfa Romeo line-up: five-hole alloy wheels, the cluster in the ‘telescopic’ instrument panel, the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and the sine-curve headlights. Its compact dimensions – length 4.53m, width 1.84m and height 1.6m – encompass the uniqueness of Italian design and the original, contemporary style typical of Alfa Romeo.

    Exterior
    The new Alfa Romeo Tonale is an evolution of the concept car first unveiled at the 2019 Geneva motor show. The Centro Stile Alfa Romeo have ensured a continuity of the concept car’s specification to deliver a production car that combines classic Alfa Romeo stylistic features, reinterpreted in the name of modernity, with the characteristics of Italian design.

    The sides are notable for their extended curve below the waistrail, known as the ‘GT Line’, which runs from the rear to the headlights, giving definition to the car’s body and its profile. In the lower part of the sides, special modelling of the surfaces conveys sensuality and athleticism in the car’s body. All these characteristic elements are deeply rooted in the brand’s DNA. In terms of the modelling, its full volumes and sensuality are reminiscent of models such as the 8C Competizione.

    On the front, the new floating ‘Scudetto’ shield stands out, no longer a part of the bumper but a distinctive element. The lower part includes two main side air intakes which together with the shield create what is known as the Trilobo. In the upper part of the front, notable features include ‘3+3’ headlights inspired by the SZ Zagato and the Proteo concept car.

    The ‘3+3’ headlights, with new full-LED adaptive matrix were developed in conjunction with Marelli, the three modules make up a unique frontline for the car and simultaneously provide daylight, dynamic turn signals and a ‘welcome and goodbye’ feature (activated when the driver turns the car on or off). The Tonale sees the introduction of new lighting technology including; Adaptive Driving Beam which constantly adjusts the dipped headlights according to speed and specific driving conditions; Glare-Free High Beam Segmented Technology which automatically detects traffic in front and traveling in the opposite direction to avoid glare from other cars; a third module which is automatically activated when turning corners to ensure the best lateral lighting. These technologies offer greater efficiency – in terms of durability and energy saving, with twice the light intensity of conventional halogen lamps and lower emissions – and improved safety, with less eye strain and better driving comfort.

    The light unit is once again the star at the rear. It reworks the proposal made in the concept car, in a kind of sine curve that passes from either side of the rear and becomes the unequivocal light signature of the Tonale. The roundness and, now classic, fold in the lower centerline shape of the rear window characterises the car's upper rear volume, in a sporty yet elegant way evoking iconic cars like the 8C Competizione where the daylight opening (DLO), the edges of the side windows and the top of the rear window meet.

    The new teledial alloy wheels, much appreciated on the concept car, now feature on the production model. This is the reworking of the perforated telephone dial theme, the result of an evolution that began in the 1960s with iconic cars like the 33 Stradale. Over time the perforations have gradually been increased in size, first to adapt to technical solutions and concepts, then more and more closely related to needs for brake cooling, lightness and resistance. The Tonale is available with a choice of 17, 18, 19 and 20-inch alloy wheels to enhance the model’s silhouette.
