Clear exterior design accents give it a purist appearance that emphasises the hallmark design features. In addition, the innovative Multitone Roof creates unique individualisation opportunities.

Attractive additions to the range of standard and optional equipment, new exterior paint finishes, light-alloy wheels, interior and seating surfaces as well as innovative technology in the areas of chassis, driver assistance systems, operation and connectivity round off the latest update for the British brand's small car models.
When the Alpine A480 is on the track contesting a round of the FIA World Endurance Championship, it is out of the engineers’ sight, especially at Le Mans where the circuit exceeds 13 kilometres in length. Yet nothing of the car’s performance escapes them thanks to the 2,000 or so items of telemetry data that are transmitted to the pits in real time! Thomas Tribotté, Alpine Elf Matmut Endurance Team Race Engineer, explains how managing this data can lead to a successful race and even victory.
The Tonale’s power makes its debut on the road in Tempio Voltiano, the celebrated location of Alessandro Volta’s inventions in the beautiful setting of Lake Como. A symbolic location to highlight the brand’s “metamorphosis”, it was here more than 200 years ago that the Italian scientist created his most famous invention: the battery, the first generator of dynamic electricity. A scientific landmark in modern history, this instrument allows our technological civilization to function. A precursor to the concept of sustainability, Alessandro Volta obsessively studied nature in order to replicate it for the benefit of humanity. This innovative approach, which is fully embraced by Alfa Romeo, demonstrates how, with its “mechanical creations”, sustainable technological development must imitate nature and take inspiration from it in order to adapt and live in harmony with it. Therefore, the Italian brand’s latest chapter couldn’t help but begin in Tempio Voltiano. With Tonale, Alfa Romeo has radically evolved and launched itself into a new, technological, sustainable and electrified era. The Tonale’s road capabilities are clear. The technology and connectivity on board make it the most technological Alfa Romeo to date. It combines quality and attention-to-detail with dynamic features to reinvent sportiness in the 21st century.
