Official Release Date for the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale

Alfa Romeo has been on the cutting-edge of automotive style since the early 20th Century. As the automaker enters the second decade of the 21st Century, it is on the cutting-edge of automotive technology. When the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale is available during the first quarter of next year (pending any lingering industry challenges), it will be the automaker’s first plug-in hybrid SUV platform that will deftly balance performance and fuel economy. Our manufacturing partner has released a few interesting details about its newest addition to the roster. Let’s take a look at a few things the Alfa Romeo Ottawa team found particularly interesting.

When the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale is available at Alfa Romeo Ottawa, it will be taking on some strongest competitors available in the luxury compact crossover SUV class. The first time a customer takes a look at the 2023 Tonale, they will notice its uniquely Italian style that is highlighted by sweeping curves. Of course, the front of the 2023 Tonale is dominated by the automaker’s floating Scudetto shield. 

2023 Tonale Performance & Efficiency

The 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale is available with two distinctly different powertrains. Standard models will use a turbocharged 2.0-litre, inline four-cylinder engine attached to a nine-speed automatic transmission. It will produce 256 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. 

The plug-in hybrid version uses a turbocharged 1.3-litre, four-cylinder mill that is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and a high-capacity lithium-ion battery that powers an electric motor mounted to the rear axle. When the gasoline and electric systems are working together the Tonale PHEV model will make up to 272 horsepower. Additionally, the hybrid variant can make trips of up to 80 km, when the proper settings are applied.

Tonale Interior Features

Every Alfa Romeo vehicle platform has had an athletic, driver-centric interior. The 2023 Tonale certainly fits that mould, but the rest of the passengers will have plenty of room to be comfortable as well. Front passengers could be sitting in racing-inspired seats with side bolsters. The rear passengers will have a split-bench seat of their own. We are still waiting to learn about the exact interior and cargo dimensions for the new Alfa Romeo vehicle.


To be sure, there will be no lack of connectivity technology available with the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale. Each new Tonale will be equipped with a 10.3-inch touchscreen interface, running one of the most well-regarded infotainment systems in the automotive industry. Drivers and passengers will also have wireless access to both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto suites of applications. There is also a high level of compatibility with the Amazon Alexa digital home assistant that will vastly change the way people interact with the 2023 Tonale.

According to the latest available information, we are approximately a year away from seeing the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale land in the Alfa Romeo Ottawa showroom.
