2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale vs 2023 Audi Q3 SUVs in Colorado

2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale vs 2023 Audi Q3

2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale Compared to the 2023 Audi Q3

The newest compact SUV from Alfa Romeo that offers a unique take on the high-performance brand, the 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale is available for order now. Not only does the new compact SUV offer a robust gas-powered version, but it is the first Alfa Romeo model to feature the versatility of a PHEV model. Familiar Alfa Romeo sportiness meets modernized hybrid performance to create a unique Denver Metro cruising experience. Competition like the 2023 Audi Q3 fails to capture the ingenuity of what the Tonale delivers when it is driven around the Denver Metro region.  


Those who want the quintessential Alfa Romeo driving experience will appreciate the conventional powertrain that is propelled by a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine. Generating 256 horsepower, this version of the Tonale will get around Colorado with the same vigorous performance that Alfa Romeo fans have come to expect from the brand. The automatic nine-speed transmission paired with this engine keeps acceleration responsive and smooth. As for the innovative new PHEV version of the 2024 Tonale, a turbocharged 1.3L four-cylinder engine is paired with an electric motor to deliver 272 combined horsepower of pure performance. AWD will be equipped on every version of the Tonale to make sure that getting around Colorado in any weather is reliable.  

Base “45” models of the 2023 Audi Q3 are equipped with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine like the gas-powered Tonale models. However, they lack the same charisma as the Tonale with only 228 horsepower at the driver’s command in the Audi. This engine is accompanied by a Tiptronic® eight-speed automatic transmission. Just like the Tonale, the 2023 Q3 is equipped with standard AWD handling on every trim level of the SUV.  

Interior Features

Not only does the 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale come with a standard 10.25-inch touchscreen display compared to the 8.8-inch version in the Audi Q3, but the Tonale also comes with additional convenience implements as standard features. This includes the convenience of a wireless smartphone charger on every trim level of the Tonale. The Tonale uses the newest Uconnect 5 infotainment system for the most recent array of entertainment and convenience applications yet. Both SUVs have Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth® connectivity for applicable smartphones bundled in every trim level of both SUVs. Both SUVs also offer upscale luxury through well-supported seating and high-quality materials.  

Safety Features

AWD handling makes both the 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale and the 2023 Audi Q3 premier all-weather options for Colorado drivers thanks to the enhanced handling precision these vehicles offer. To supplement everyday driving situations, both vehicles offer additional standard driver-assistance technology such as the combination of Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert systems for comprehensive coverage behind the vehicles. Unlike the baselike Q3, the Tonale will come with Adaptive Cruise Control as a standard technology on every trim level of the SUV for more enjoyable and less tiring highway trips all around Colorado.
