Yet another crossover enters the fray in the shape of the Alfa Romeo Tonale, which in UK spec is exclusively available as a mild hybrid or plug-in hybrid model. Continental tells us that it is supplying tyres for vehicles equipped with 18-inch rims, as well as a 17-inch tyre for markets where that rim size is offered. Alfa Romeo will fit the Continental EcoContact 6 to Tonale models built at its Pomigliano d’Arco plant in Naples, Italy in sizes 215/60 R 17 96V and 235/50 R 18 97V.
But Continental is by no means the sole tyre brand worn by the Alfa Romeo Tonale. A perusal of the Stellantis Europe website shows that several tyre brands and models are approved as original equipment for the UK spec Tonale. In addition to the EcoContact 6, models delivered on 18-inch rims are also available with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 and Nexen N’Fera Primus tyres, both in 235/50R18 97 V. Tonale models riding on 19-inch rims are equipped with Bridgestone Turanza T005 or Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 tyres in 235/45R19 99 V XL. Buyers who opt for 20-inch rims can choose from Bridgestone Turanza T005 or Pirelli P Zero tyres, both in 235/40R20 96 V XL.
