Scorecard

Interior: 8.4

Auto critics love the Scaglietti's beautifully constructed interior cabin -- where luxury comes standard. New for '09 is Ferrari Atelier, which is an "organized marketing effort to allow Ferrari customers to have their 612s tailor-made to their specific tastes," explains Automobile Magazine.

  • "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." -- MarketWatch
  • "The 612 Scaglietti's interior breaks the stereotype that driving a Ferrari requires sacrificing creature comforts. This leather-lined cabin features sumptuous seating and high-quality materials throughout." -- Edmunds
  • "The cabin is beautifully finished in a way that makes most rivals look very mass market." -- Yahoo Autos

Seating

Auto writers, on balance, agree that the Scaglietti's low-slung cabin is hard to access. But, once inside, most find the front seats provide comfortable accommodations. Its backseats, however, receive mix reviews.

  • "Entry and exit are helped by a power front passenger seat, but the low roofline requires crouching to fully reach the rear compartment." -- Consumer Guide
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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

Interior Features

Featuring a ton of modern, intuitive features, critics find little to complain about in the '09 Scaglietti -- especially when it comes to its powerful Bose sound system.

  • "As befits its lightweight underpinnings, the 612 Scaglietti's 2+2 interior is trimmed in aluminum, with impeccably handcrafted leather upholstery throughout. The contoured front sport seats are power-adjustable with a unique headrest design that can be raised and lowered electrically in conjunction with the seatbelt." -- Forbes
  • " Drivers can control the car's many interactive systems via small, intuitive buttons mounted on the steering wheel." -- Edmunds
  • "Minor complaints include small radio buttons with indistinct markings and a speedometer that can be tough to read at a glance." -- Consumer Guide
  • "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 space -- which is small, but average for this class.

  • "The boot is also bigger a good 25 per cent up on the 456 and well up to the task of swallowing a couple of golf bags." -- Yahoo Autos
  • "Boot is reasonably sized by supercar standards." -- Fifth Gear
