The Tonale has been a before and after in the history of Alfa Romeo, a milestone in the process of conversion into a fully electric firm, scheduled for 2027. After its first full year, sales of the Tonale in the Spanish market already represent 62 % of its registrations, surpassing the Stelvio (34%) and the Giulia (4%).

Manufactured in Pomigliano, near Naples, the Alfa Romeo Tonale has quality and reliability as key points of its success. This commitment has been reflected in the JD Power study, in which the brand is a leader in the premium market.

The Sprint comes standard with Matrix Full LED lights, a navigator with a 10.25-inch screen with connected services, a rear camera, aluminum pedals and 18-inch wheels.

For its part, the Tonale Plug-in Hybrid Q4 with 280 HP (0-100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and up to 69 km in zero emissions mode) constitutes the top of the range and accounts for 19% of sales.
