    Alfa Romeo Giulia Interior

    Best-in-class interior by a mile in my eyes. Cadillac used a similar steering wheels design for all of their big concepts (Sixteen/Ciel/Elmiraj), but of course, it never reached production for whatever reason. I hate suede seats, and I'm sure that's just an option, but I like everything else about this car. My top choice in the segment design-wise, and likely overall depending on what the base engines look like.

    A new set of interior photos of the Giulia QV has surfaced on the internet following the only (presumably official) photo of the cabin we saw last month.

    The photos appear to have been taken during the Giulia’s reveal on June 24 and reveal many details of the cabin, including the sports steering wheel wrapped in leather and Alcantara, which also features carbon fiber inserts and a red button for starting and turning off the engine.

    Aluminum and carbon fiber accents can be seen all over the cabin, with the largest carbon fiber surfaces being found on the back covers of the bucket seats, which combine black leather with Alcantara and white stitching.

    Re: Alfa Romeo Giulia Interior

    Other than the carbon fibre (is it real?) on the back of the seats, which is a very nice touch, there is nothing particularly interesting or special about this interior. It actually surprising that the three year old ATS' interior (4 years by the time the Alfa is available) still looks competitive (to me).

    I cannot believe they used poor plastics below the HVAC controls and the misaligned parts in a pre production car. Its worse than the pre production Cadillacs.

    Very Nice.

    Modern, but still has that Alfa interior look I loved back in the 70's....

    The whole interior focuses to the instrument binnacles.

    Camaro, that is how you do twin dial instrument binnacles...

    I fail to see what's so special about it

    Smart move not to fill it with oil before the photo shoot

    I like it, but I think that using carbon fibre as a decorative surface has become cliche. It's fine as a design element in cars with significant carbon in the structure like the 4C. But, as a decorative material, it doesn't do much for me. When will a modern, high-end performance automaker start looking at new materials that are both useful and aesthetically pleasing? I'm growing weary of endless variations on wood, cf and leather. Do something different, please!

    like the steering wheel and the seats, the rest looks ordinary. The new Camaro interior details look more interesting. Unfortunately Camaro is a Chevy not an exotic Italian brand every American loves even without deeper look.

    Overall it's pretty nice. Just enough bling and it has a functional aesthetic and looks very traditional Alfa.

    It's ok, but I think the outside is better looking than the inside would have you believe.

    The start-stop button on the steering wheel is the cat's meow, I love that little feature. Very sporty-feeling.

    When will the suede go away? It's a pretty normal interior, but the cf seatbacks and the steering wheel are really cool.

    Those twin binnacles look childish and poorly executed. My 09 CTS three binnacle design is far better. Driving today, I wondered by Cadillac didn't continue to use that feature in the ATS.

    Honestly? It doesn't look like it was something to write home about.
    And personally, I hate carbon fiber as an interior accent. It is fancy plastic.

    LOL, this thing will get crashed by the Camaro. I think both cars live up to what they are.

    The thing is though, Camaro has gone high technology, probably way more that Alfa. It does not have 'dials' anymore. It has a 'computer screen'








    Plus look at the steering wheel buttons on the Alfa, straight from the Cruze.

    I know italian cows make better leather, but really, Camaro is okay, and its going to hold its own for its market segment.
