Ferrari is tight-lipped on the interiors of this much-awaited SUV, but it’ll have driver-focused interiors, with a room for 4 adults and a decent size boot to accommodate those bags for short trips. Exotic leather & carbon fiber trim is likely to be used inside this luxury SUV.

Just like the recent Ferraris, the Roma, and the F8 Tributo, which come with interesting in-car entertainment systems, the Purosangue will surely get a navigation system as standard too.

The manufacturer also offers a host of safety features in the SUV, like the ADAS, which consists of automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, a lane departure system with lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
