Scorecard

Interior: 8.3

Reviewers find that the 612 Scaglietti's cabin offers luxurious accommodations for four passengers. Still, if consumers aren't entirely satisfied, they can opt to take advantage of the "Carrozzerie Scaglietti" program, which allows them to personalize their rides.

  • "The cabin is beautifully finished in a way that makes most rivals look very mass market." -- Yahoo Autos
  • "Although Ferraris typically sacrifice some comfort in exchange for maximum performance, the 612 Scaglietti breaks with tradition by being the most luxurious and accommodating Ferrari in recent memory." -- Edmunds
  • "The quality of the materials and the way they are put together are second to none." -- Consumer Guide
  • "Inside the cabin the true specialness becomes apparent. This is a Ferrari for those who regard lesser Ferraris as being not exclusive enough, and the quality of fit and finish is exemplary -- and a clear improvement over the 456." -- Fifth Gear
  • "Ferrari says owners are able to customize the interior to their liking -- the 'Carrozzeria Scaglietti' program. As one official told us, 'If they want it to match their wife's fingernail polish, we can do it. It will cost them, but we can do it.'" -- MarketWatch

Seating

Overall, critics find the Scaglietti's front seats comfortable, but offer mixed reviews for its rear seat. However, given its 2+2 seating arrangement, this can be expected.

  • "The driving position features a decent range of adjustment and the high-speed refinement is outstanding, making the 612 a pretty much peerless place to spend serious time." -- Fifth Gear
  • "There's plenty of room on seats that are all-day comfortable. Drivers of most any size should have no trouble fitting, but the very tall may find head room in short supply. ...  Medium-size adults can fit in the rear as long as the front seats aren't set too far back. Head and leg room are merely OK, but passengers of even moderate girth may find the seat uncomfortable due its prominent side bolsters." -- Consumer Guide
  • "As with most cars of this nature, getting in and out can be a challenge for those who are less flexible, but once inside, driver and passenger will find a comfortable and efficiently designed cabin; the rear seat can accommodate small to average-size adults on short trips." -- Forbes
  • "The leather-swathed cabin is, in complete truth, roomy enough to accommodate four six-foot passengers for extended periods of time, something we've never before seen in a Ferrari." -- Automobile.com
  • "Accessing the two rear bucket seats isn't exactly easy, but once situated, passengers will find supportive seats and adequate room." -- Edmunds
  • "The rear seats are a good deal more spacious than the rather token affairs in the [Ferrari] 456 although they're still not a place you'd opt to spend any great time." -- Yahoo Autos

Interior Features

Auto writers offer little criticism regarding the 612 Scaglietti's luxurious interior features.

  • "High-quality leather upholstery and aluminum trim are used throughout the cabin. Drivers can control the car's many interactive systems via small, intuitive buttons mounted on the steering wheel." -- Edmunds
  • "The standard leather upholstery, door panels, and headliner can be matched to any color a buyer desires. Trim pieces can be made of real wood or carbon fiber. ...  Minor complaints include small radio buttons with indistinct markings and a speedometer that can be tough to read at a glance." -- Consumer Guide
  • "Inside, drivers and passengers are rewarded with glove-soft leather, superb ergonomics, and no I-drive or M-drive. We found it amazing that in such a hot performance car, Ferrari's layout could be quickly mastered when it came to the basics such as audio, ventilation and so forth. The Bose sound system in our test car, with nine speakers jammed inside the cockpit, was grand." -- MarketWatch
  • "The audio system gives clear, crisp sound reproduction, even at very high speeds. Satnav is an extra cost option, which seems a bit stingy at this end of the market." -- Fifth Gear

Cargo

The Scaglietti provides 8.75 cubic feet of cargo volume, which is fair for its class.

  • "Not much storage space in the trunk, given the 612's exterior size. It has sufficient width side to side but is quite shallow front to back. A pair of golf bags will fit but without any other room to spare. Interior storage is limited to a small glovebox and center console." -- Consumer Guide
  • "Boot is reasonably sized by supercar standards." -- Fifth Gear
