Alfa Romeo Tonale Ti 2023 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
7.8
The Tonale Ti is the first of two grades for Alfa Romeo’s new compact, five-seat premium SUV. At just over four and half metres long it’s a full five-seater but sits squarely within the small SUV footprint. Priced at $49,990, before on-road costs, the Ti squares up to Audi’s Q3, the Lexus UX and segment leading Volvo XC40.

It’s a mild hybrid, primarily powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine sending 118kW/240Nm to the front wheels via a seven-speed, dual-clutch auto transmission. And it’s supported by a 48-volt propulsion system built around a 15kW/55Nm electric motor integrated into the transmission.

Alfa’s official fuel economy number for the Tonale on the combined cycle is an impressively thrifty 5.6L/100km, the 1.5-litre petrol engine emitting 130g/km of CO2 in the process and the car scored a maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating from testing in 2022. 

Active, crash-avoidance tech includes AEB (operating from 5.0 to 150km/h), lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise, active high beam, traffic sign recognition, front and rear parking sensors and tyre pressure monitoring. If a crash is unavoidable, there are six airbags onboard.
