Entry-level though it may be, the Roma grand tourer is not only the most beautiful Ferrari in years, but also an accomplished and thoroughly civilised motor car.
The move to an all-glass cockpit, however, while superficially impressive, is somewhat less successful. The main display is par for the course and, on the face of it, the 8.4-inch, portrait-format central display ranks as an improvement over the smaller screens fitted to other current Fezzas. But things start getting weird with the virtual engine-on “button”, the mirror-adjustment touchpad, the electronic door openers and a range of touchscreen-operated controls that, aside from being fiddly and unintuitive, serve as uncomfortable reminders of Murphy’s Law – what could possibly go wrong? Fortunately, there are no such concerns about the physical dimensions of this 2+2 cabin. Though the pair of seats in the back should be viewed as occasional in the extreme, that also means plenty of rear storage space when travelling one- or two-up.
