Alfa Romeo attacks with the compact SUV Tonal BMW X2, Audi Q3 and VW Tiguan. The crossover comes with electrified drive strands including a plug-in hybrid, in which the Italians promise a city reach of up to 80 kilometers.

If the Italians can be able to build one tension with their new cars. The Alfa Romeo Tonal was announced, there were prototypes that promised a lot and ErlkOnigbilder. Now the covers have finally fallen and a very handsome compact SUV comes to light. Because the Italians can definitely do that: build chice cars.

Alfa Romeo relies on the beauty gene

Especially if you can use a history of automotive classics. The tonal designers do this completely unashamed and do a lot correctly: the five rims are modeled on those that Alfa Romeo used in the 1960s in the street version of the Tipo 33 Stradale. The headlights are similar to them Alfa SZ Zagato. At first glance, the 4.53 meter long crossover is in the crowd and differs from competitors such as the BMW X2, the Audi Q3 and the VW Tiguan.

With the pretty light, technology such as cornering lights and a light assistant that automatically displays on oncoming traffic also comes. Alfa speaks of a matrix light here, which would mean that the other road users are "grayed out" by temporarily deactivating individual modules of the LED headlights.

Technology comes from Jeep

The driving report will show whether this is actually the case. The technique of the tonal comes from the Jeep Compass and its platform has been on the hump for several years. However, the Italian technicians are concerned with keeping the technology modern and finally electrifying the drive train.

A new hybrid drive combines a charged 1.5-liter petrol engine, which thanks to variable turbine geometry 118 kW / 160 hp provides with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and a 48-volt electric engine that contributes an additional 15 kW and 55 Newton meters of torque for propulsion. The new Alfa Romeo tonal in hybrid version also drives purely electrically. However, no large e-kilometer jumps should be possible. A somewhat weaker variant of the full hybrid is 96 kW / 130 hp.

Drives: gasoline, hybrid or electrical

If you want an all-wheel drive, you have to use a plug-in hybrid that brings 202 kW / 275 hp on the street and thus 26 kW / 35 more than in the Jeep Compass. In the model that will appear over the course of the year, Alfa Romeo promises to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds, an electrical range of up to 80 kilometers in the city cycle and over 60 kilometers in the combined cycle So put the segment at the top of the segment. The batteries should be filled again after two and a half hours on a 7.4 kW wall box. The PHEV module has an electric motor on the rear axle and a 1.3-liter multiAir turbo gasoline engineer. However, the Alfisti still have to wait for a fully electric version. There is a 96 kW / 130 hp diesel with a six-speed double clutch transmission.

Alfa promises a lot of technology in the small SUV

In the case of driving dynamics, Alfa wants to set standards and speaks of a perfect weight distribution 50:50, the most direct steering (translation: (13.6: 1) in the segment and an electronic limited slip differential for vehicles with front wheel drive, which should basically be expanded ESP. The electronically controlled shock absorbers come from Marelli, "Dual Stage Valve", which, as the name suggests, only allow two operating modes: "Comfort" and "Sport". The integrated brake system (IBS) with Brembo brakes ensures the delay. This electromechanical system combines electronic stability control with the mechanical brake, which promises better dosability and no vibrations in the brake pedal.

The Italians upgrade the infotainment, which is also urgently needed: Alexa should ensure that the language input is smooth and wireless updates should keep the software up to date. The combination of a 12.3-inch instrument panel and a 10.25-inch touchscreen is now in the Standard Compact segment. A 4G module should guarantee connectivity and the infotainment is apparently based on the Android operating system, which promises more intuitive operation than in Giulia and the Stelvio so far. If you want, you can integrate your smartphone via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Price: around 36.000 euros

In the driving assistant, the tonal classes offer: a dead angle assistant, warning in the back of cross traffic and a 360-degree camera. There is also an emergency brake assistant, a lane departure assistant, an adaptive cruise control and a traffic sign detection. The cockpit with the deeply seated round instruments looks good and promises dynamics. At the price, Alfa Romeo is still silent, we suspect around 36.000 euros.
