Alfa Romeo Tunale, the mid-size crossover of the famous Italian company Alfa Romeo, is scheduled to be launched in 2022 with hybrid propulsion. Alfa Romeo’s new CEO, John Flip Imparato, believes that the reason for the delay in the launch of this crossover was its technical and quality upgrade.
However, Alfa Romeo, as a subsidiary of Fiat and Chrysler, has merged with the Peugeot and Citroen groups to form a new partnership in the automotive industry called the Atlantis Automotive Group.
The Tonale will actually be a smaller crossover than the Stallio and will also be sold in North America.
Previously, this product was supposed to be developed based on the Jeep Compass platform.
The concept of this product was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show 2019, and it seems that Alfa Romeo designers will continue the way of this concept until its design reaches the production model.
Tonale can greatly improve the situation of this Italian carmaker because it is in the class that has the highest growth among car buyers.
Alfa Romeo currently has only two Julia and Stallio products to offer, and although they are among the best choices in their class in terms of engineering and driving experience, Alfa Romeo is not in a very good position in terms of build quality and after-sales service.
The Stalantis Group is expected to design and launch a new generation of hybrid powertrains and plug-in hybrids for a variety of products, and Tunale will likely be equipped with the same powertrains.
However, it is not yet clear what the powertrain will look like and based on which of the current engines of this large automotive group will be developed.
The most important competitors of the tunnel are BMW X2, Mercedes-Benz GLA and Audi Q2.
