    In the photos we see that the body shape of the Hornet is basically identical to the body shape of Tonale. The main changes are on the front panel with a simplified design of the headlights and a rectangular ventilation hole between the upper and lower grilles, similar to the view observed on the stronger versions Charger. The taillights and rear bumper are very similar to the Tonale, but this prototype Hornet has other wheels, different from the leaked images that showed it riding on the wheels of Alfa Romeo’s “telephone dial”.

    The Hornet is expected to arrive with a hybrid Tonale unit with a 1.3-liter in-line four and an electric motor on the rear axle that delivers a total of 272 horsepower. It is unclear whether Dodge will get another power unit Tonale, a non-hybrid 2.0-liter in-line four with turbocharging and 256 horsepower.
