The Alfa Romeo Giulia isn’t the easiest of executive saloons to get into, due to its fairly low roofline and low-set seats. But once you’re in, it caters for larger adults fairly well in both the front and the back with a surprising amount of head room unless you’re considerably more than six feet tall.
The front seats are quite wide, adjustable and comfortable, even if they could use a little more under-thigh support. Both shoulder room and elbow room are also good. There’s an assortment of cubbyholes for stowing your odds and ends, too, including a sizeable space underneath the centre armrest.
In the back, there’s a competitive amount of head and leg room for the class – more than you'll find in the Volvo S60 but less than there is in the BMW 3 Series.
The Giulia's boot isn't too far behind key rivals, such as the 3 Series and S60, for outright load capacity. However, ultimately it's slightly smaller; we managed to fit six carry-on suitcases inside, compared with seven in those rivals.
Meanwhile, split-folding (40/20/40) rear seats are optional on entry-level Super trim, but they’re standard-fit from Nero Edizione trim and above.
