For 1975, Imperial interiors were almost identical to those offered the previous year, with the addition of a Dark Red color and expanded accent colors for the optional White Leather interiors. Standard upholstery was a luxurious Brushed Velour Cloth and Leather 50/50 divided front seat with individual adjustments and armrests. The deep, pillowed upholstery style gave the interior a very elegant look and invited long drives. On Four Door models, the passenger side includes a recliner, and on Two Door models there is an automatic seat-back release. A folding rear center armrest is provided for rear passengers, and soft built-in foam pillows in the sail panels included rear reading lamps. Four Door models also provided lavaliere straps to make entering and exiting the car easier.

The Imperial instrument panel and side paneling is accented with simulated Brazilian rosewood, and color matched loop-pile carpeting covers the floor and lower door panels inside as well as the luggage compartment and spare tire.

The 1975 Imperial interior was comparable to any interior in any luxury car when it came to appearance, comfort, and luxury. And in many cases, the Imperial interior had to make owners of other luxury cars question their interiors.
