Alfa Romeo recently announced a special series called Tributo Italiano for their line-up. Available in the Giulia, Stelvio and Tonale models, the exclusive edition pays tribute to the brand’s origins and epitomizes Italian know-how and Alfa Romeo sportiness.
Tributo Italiano exterior
The main features of Tributo Italiano – stemming from the stylistic and aesthetic language shared by the three models – include a two-tone livery with black roof, the body-color body-kit, the new addition of the Italian flag to the mirror caps, and the refined interior customizations, all of which serve as evidence of meticulous attention to detail combined with the constant quest for the highest quality. To be more specific, the Giulia, Stelvio and Tonale Tributo Italiano are positioned at the top of their respective ranges and are offered exclusively in the three colors of the Italian flag (Rosso Alfa, Verde Montreal, and Bianco Alfa) paired with a black roof, which can also be opened as a sunroof, an optional extra for the Tonale.
Several hallmarks contribute to the unique, bold look of the special series: the front grille with “V” insert (in black on the Giulia and Stelvio, in Dark Miron on the Tonale); alloy wheels (21-inch on the Stelvio, new 19-inch on the Giulia, 20-inch on the Tonale), all part of the top-of-the range versions and combined with very sporty red Brembo brake calipers. In addition, to add a touch of elegance to the brand’s characteristic sportiness, throughout the line-up and for the first time on the Tonale: the lower body-kit painted in the same color as the bodywork; front and rear bumper side inserts; wheel arches; side skirts. The impression on the Alfa Romeo C-SUV is further accentuated by skid plates and side/front accents in matte Dark Miron, adaptive Full-LED Matrix headlights, and chrome-plated twin tailpipes on the Q4 Plug-In Hybrid version.
Tributo Italiano interior
The same sporty features can be found in the interior of the three Tributo Italiano models. Specifically, the new black leather sports seats feature perforations with hints of red, and the front headrests are embroidered with the distinctive new logo of the special series. Other new features include red stitching on the dashboard, seats, and door panels. Plus, the Tonale Tributo Italiano comes with a new “carbon design” dashboard fascia, with the Alfa Romeo logo, ambient lighting, and aluminum kick plate.
Well-being aboard the Tributo Italiano is also ensured by the dual-zone air conditioning, heated steering wheel with aluminum shift paddles built into the steering column, pleasant ambient lighting, sophisticated infotainment system, heated front seats, and a premium sound system equipped with 14 speakers by Harman Kardon, including a subwoofer. All these solutions are designed to offer customers a high level of comfort, refinement, and all-Italian conviviality. Last but not least, the Stelvio and Tonale come with a hands-free electric tailgate as standard.
Advanced driver assistance systems
Depending on the model, these include: ADAS systems for level 2 autonomous driving; a high-resolution camera that offers a drone-like 360° view all around the car; Blind Spot Detector and Rear Cross-Path Detector; side sensors; electrochrome external rear-view mirrors.
