The Alfa Romeo Tonale might be new for the 2024 model year, but the brand has been around for much longer. Alfa Romeo was established in 1910 and has been known for crafting luxurious sport-oriented vehicles. The 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale carries on one bold tradition by being perfect for one type of driver. 

What’s so special about the 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale?

The 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale is authentic. It’s a unique SUV with athletic aesthetics that help it stand out in a crowded compact segment. Plenty of similar-sized options, like the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid and Audi Q3, blend into the background. 

The Tonale stands out with an aggressive and confident stance that’s accented by the adaptive LED Tribolo headlights and V Scudetto grille. During our week with the Veloce trim, its style received tons of compliments. 

Even the 20-inch five-hole wheels help this vehicle stand out with racing-inspired details and refinement. If you want to drive something different, then the Alfa RomeoTonale is your ideal option. 

The interior stands out, too, with customizable LED ambient lighting that crafts a backlit appearance on the dash. The desh has a modern, textured graphic when the lights aren’t in use. 

Plus, the available Alcantra and techno-leather trimmed seats have a 3D gradient effect to stand out. Contrasting colors and red accent stitching provide a premium, athletic, and comfortable ambiance. 

There are plenty of smaller details to obsess over too. The Italian flag is by the center console, the masculine metal gear shifters are massive, the air vents look like targets, and silver trim pieces break up large sections of premium black upholstery. 

How much power does the Alfa Romeo Tonale have? 

The 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale features a standard plug-in hybrid powertrain. So, it’s not fully electric as it uses both gas and electricity. 

A turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine is paired with a 15.5-kWh battery pack and an electric motor to generate 285 hp, which is impressive for the class. The BMW X1 Maxes out at 241 hp. 

The Tonale can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in roughly 5.6 seconds, which is exciting. It has a smooth power delivery with responsive handling and confident braking. 

Every aspect of the layout allows the driver to focus on the road. The start button is by the center of the steering wheel, and the DNA driving mode selector is placed close by. The 12.3-inch digital guage cluster provides navigation and other crucial driving information. 

Use the D Mode for Dual Power; it gets the most power from the engine and battery for spirited sports. The N or Natural mode is more relaxed for daily driving, and the A or Advanced Efficiency mode is EV only. 

Is the 2024 Tonale available in America?

Yes, the 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale is available in America. Pre-orders for this new SUV opened at the beginning of the year. The Tonale starts with an MSRP of $42,995. The top-spec Veloce trim takes the price up to $47,495. 

These prices don’t include the $1,595 destination fee. It has a slightly higher starting price than rivals but comes with more standard power, and it’s a fuel-efficient PHEV. Other standard goodies include all-wheel drive. 

Plus, the Alfa Romeo Tonale may qualify for a $7,500 EV Federal tax credit, which takes a huge chunk out of the price. 

The Alfa Romeo Tonale is perfect for the driver who wants to stand out with a unique and authentic vehicle. It’s a spirited racing-inspired SUV with a confident, luxurious style and an engaging ride. 

We’re still waiting to see this SUV’s official safety scores and reliability ratings, so stay tuned for the latest updates.
