alfa romeo tonale

Not exactly ready to go full EV? Alfa Romeo gets it with the Tonale Veloce EAWD, a plug-in hybrid that’s fun, fast and eco-friendly. Everything from this car’s sporty-semi luxe design to the sound system, interior and drive modes makes driving more fun.

The Tonale is not a sports car but it sure feels like one.

Sports cars are fun but they sure aren’t comfortable or practical. So when a brand throws in some fun sporty features into an SUV, it’s a game changer. The first thing that I noticed was how powerful the engine was. The Tonale provides a smooth ride but it’s also a strong one which made it a lot of fun to drive. The SUV crossover has 3 drive modes which you control from a dial. DNA- Dynamic/Natural/Advanced Efficiency.

You can opt for a premium leather interior but the Alcantara is really nice.

If I were buying the Tonale, I would certainly go for the Alcantara option. Not only is it unique but it stands out. The red stitching compliments the exterior Rosso (red) color and gives it a sporty look. The embroidered logos on the headrest are the icing on the cake.

Who’s the Tonale for?

My ladies who love sporty features but prefer to drive a small SUV and not ready to go full EV. This is a great car for girls who like a sporty feel and like to have fun while they’re in drive mode.
