Alfa Romeo has stepped up its game by revealing special Tributo Italiano versions of its Giulia compact sedan, Stelvio compact crossover, and Tonale subcompact crossover. The Italian automaker described these cars as its first-ever global special series, celebrating its Italian roots in a bold, elegant, and patriotic way.
It is no surprise that these special edition cars are only available in the colors of the Italian flag – green, red, and white. The Italian flag motifs can also be found on the side mirror caps, and tastefully integrated into various areas of the cabin, such as on the headrests. The styling is further enhanced by a black roof paired with a dark theme for the grille’s frame, front and rear fascias, and wheel arches, all perfectly matching the body color. Additionally, these special edition models come equipped with the largest wheels available for each of the models, as well as Brembo brakes with striking red calipers.
Stepping inside these special edition Alfa Romeo vehicles, you are greeted by standard ventilated and heated front sports seats, enveloped in sleek black leather with eye-catching red contrast stitching. This same contrast stitching extends to the dashboard and door panels, adding a touch of sophistication to the interior. But Alfa Romeo didn’t stop there – the Italian automaker ensured that these special editions come with several premium features as standard, including dual-zone air conditioning, a heated steering wheel with aluminum shift paddles, and a 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. Additionally, the Stelvio and Tonale also come standard with a powered tailgate, adding convenience to the list of standout features.
When it comes to performance and safety, Alfa Romeo has not cut any corners. The Tributo Italiano series comes equipped with active suspension and a suite of electronic driver-assist features as standard. Depending on the model, the driver-assist features may include a surround-view camera, blind spot and rear cross-traffic warnings, and a highway-assist feature that can control a car in its lane (when adequate lane markings are available) and maintain a gap with a vehicle in front. However, it is important to note that the driver still needs to constantly monitor the system.
While these special edition Alfa Romeo models have already created quite a buzz, it is worth mentioning that order books for the Tributo Italiano series are now open. However, as of now, availability in the U.S. has not been announced and pricing information has also not been disclosed, leaving enthusiasts eager to get their hands on these unique and exclusive models.
In summary, Alfa Romeo’s Tributo Italiano series offers a blend of Italian passion and style, creating a distinct and captivating lineup of vehicles that pay homage to the brand’s Italian heritage. From the stunning exterior design to the upscale interiors and advanced safety and performance features, the Tributo Italiano series embodies the essence of Alfa Romeo’s commitment to excellence and innovation. It’s a true celebration of Italian automotive expertise and craftsmanship, and a testament to Alfa Romeo’s unwavering dedication to creating exceptional driving experiences.
