Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio review - interior and tech

Alfa's first performance saloon in over a decade is a winner

Evo rating

This could be the Giulia’s weakest area. Although the seats and driving position are faultless, and the design of the interior is neat if a little plain, the materials used really let it down; there are lots of tough and scratchy plastics.

The Alfa’s updated infotainment system isn’t bad. The only real issue we have found is when trying to listen to audio via a Bluetooth device, the system takes a long time to reconnect and allow the phone or iPod to play. And, sometimes it refuses to play anything at all. One of the reasons why the Alfa system is a relatively good one is that it doesn’t try to be too complicated; it does everything you need but nothing more. 

The liberal use of carbonfibre and Alcantara, both of which can be found on the rim of steering wheel, do help give the inside a sporty feel. But there’s no denying it, it’s a long way off the solid, supremely well appointed and well put together interiors of its main rivals from BMW and Mercedes.
