“Small SUV under Tonale interesting”

Alfa Romeo sees room for a smaller SUV under the Tonale. The Tonale is a counterpart to the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. According to Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Phillipe Imparato, a compact SUV under the Tonale is particularly interesting to boost sales volumes, he told Automotive News.

Largest segments in the world

“If I want to secure the future of Alfa Romeo in ten years, I have to be active in the largest segments in the world,” said the CEO. “I have to be active in the B segment and in the C segment. Standing in the corner waiting doesn’t bring results.”

Alfa Romeo Brennero

Alfa Romeo is reportedly developing a smaller SUV called Brennero, named after a mountain pass in northern Italy, several Italian media outlets report. The car is expected to roll off the production line in Poland at a Stellantis factory. It is not yet known when the compact SUV will appear on the market.
