We don't have much longer to wait.
The Alfa Romeo Tonale is almost ready to be revealed. We saw the concept version back in early 2019, but since then, a number of factors have delayed its mainstream launch. For one thing, the brand's newest CEO wasn't happy with the product when he first saw what the hybrid version would be capable of. Fortunately, we've had leaks and teasers to keep us interested while we await the crossover's reveal, and after Alfa Romeo confirmed that we'd get to see the finished product in February, our excitement over the new Italian has swelled once again. Before its full reveal on February 8, however, Alfa has seen fit to provide us with one more teaser.
As the short clip above shows, we can expect typically gorgeous contrast stitching over leather in the cabin, with perforated leather for the steering wheel and tricolore accents here and there. The teaser also hints at a digital cluster for the driver, and new spy shots that hit our inbox this morning confirm that as our photographers got a quick peek at the interior screens. Sadly, the prototypes that our photographers spotted were on the move, so we don't have more detailed images of the cabin. Still, there is something interesting about these new shots that suggests something we previously thought unlikely.
In April 2020, reports out of Italy claimed that a hardcore Quadrifoglio variant of the Tonale would not be considered for production, but these images clearly show two differing designs. On one of the prototypes, we see the Trefoil grille exposed. This model appears to be an entry-level trim riding on small wheels, but another test mule with bigger and sportier black wheels has also been snapped. This seems to have sportier, more aggressive design cues, but then again, this could be nothing more than an appearance package. Either way, we'll learn more on February 8 when the Italian reveals its fancy dress(es).
