INTERIOR, SOLACE & BAGGAGE
If you’re looking for elegance and grace, the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia interior space is sure to delight. The cabin has materials like wood, textured metals, leathers, and soft-touch plastics worked into every crevasse purposefully. It has a passenger capacity of 5 people with a full passenger volume of 95 cubic feet. The seats are comfortable enough on the standard models but can be improved with the upgrade to sports seats. Cargo capacity is a bit lacking with the Giulia having a payload capacity of 905 pounds and trunk volume of 13 cubic feet. This does leave it slightly lacking in the storage department but capacity was never really a strong suit of luxury sedans.
The 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia and all its trim levels come fitted with an 8.8-inch Multi-Touch Display. The infotainment system itself comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity features and Bluetooth as standard. Wireless Charging Pads have also been made standard across the lineup, making sure that drivers are less inclined to be distracted during their trips. The audio system on the Giulia Sprint is an 8-speaker setup that comes with AM/FM/HD/Satellite Radio connectivity options. A 15-speaker setup from Harman Kardon is available on the Giulia Quadrifoglio and is capable of an output of 900 watts.
Drivers will find that the Giulia’s safety and driver-assistive suite comes with a good suite of standard features. Some of these safety systems include Anti-lock Braking Systems, Traction/Stability Controls, Forward Collision-Mitigation Systems, and even Parking Sensors on the front and rear of the car. Along with that, there are semi-autonomous safety features made available for buyers as optional features. This includes Lane Keeping Assists, Blind Spot Assists, Intelligent Speed Control, Driver Attention Alerts, and even a Highway and Traffic Jam Assist.
Alfa Romeo is quite infamous for the reliability issues suffered across its different lineups and products. It makes the warranty package offered by the company a bit lackluster as it mirrors the terms of other luxury car manufacturers. They offer a limited warranty that spans 4 years or the first 50,000 miles driven, whichever comes first. Next is their powertrain warranty which lasts for the same amount of time: 4 years with a mileage limit of 50,000 miles. They offer the included perk of complimentary scheduled maintenance which is welcomed by us. It can be availed of for the first year and is under a mileage limit of 10,000 miles driven.
