Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Due to its fairly low roofline and low-set seats, the Alfa Romeo Giulia isn’t the easiest of executive saloons to get into. Once you’re in, though, 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. Higher trims include leather and alcantara-upholstered sport seats for an even snugger fit. 

Shoulder room and elbow room are decent, and there’s an assortment of cubbyholes for stowing your odds and ends, 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 those rivals for outright load capacity; we managed to fit six carry-on suitcases in the boot compared with seven in both the Volvo and BMW.  40/20/40 split-folding rear seats are optional on entry-level Super trim and standard from Sprint or Ti trim and above.
