Width is ofcourse an important factor for fat or big guys...Esp for long rides. And regarding rear seat occupancy. A single long trip is more than enough for the person sitting in back to get uncomfortable. And family people definitely must consider that. - - - Merged Post - - - Im 6ft tall & I have a Linea & 2 of my close friends have Punto. For them the size is perfectly fine as they are around 5'5 - 5'7. And when 4 of our friends travel together, there is always a fight for the seats other than the one behind the driver - - - Merged Post - - - Alto is a good car in that segment. But you are really going to love the feel & ride in Punto. And Im sure that alone will make you a better traveller.
