The Alfa Romeo Tonale Concept is a 2+2 seat concept car from the Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo, unveiled in March 2019 at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Tonale Concept is a C-segment compact SUV, featuring a plug in hybrid (PHEV) drivetrain from the Jeep Renegade, with a front mounted petrol engine and a rear-mounted electric motor (this information is not officially confirmed by Alfa Romeo representatives);[1][2] the Tonale has D.N.A Alfa Romeo driving selector with modes: Dual Power mode for maximum performance, Natural mode for everyday use and Advanced Efficiency setting will only use electric propulsion.[3] E-mozione button on the touchscreen further tailors throttle settings, braking response, and steering feel.

The Tonale Concept is named after a Tonale Pass mountain in Northern Italy;[4] the front of the car has three-plus-three LED headlights evocative of those on the SZ and Brera.[2]
