The Matiz seats are fabulous, more comfy than the low slung Esteem.

Yeah the seats of the matiz are really good...but they might be a tad small for bigger people. The matiz had more legroom than the esteem!!!

infact the rear legroom of the matiz is more than that of the cielo.

I'm happy u guys considered the Matiz here. Except for the dashboard fouling with your left knee, i don't see any reason why its seats aren't the best. I've owned one for 5 years, spent long drives in the Zen, Palio, Indica and Alto. Haven't spent much in a Wagon-R. But i can say, for sure, the Matiz in term of underthigh, shoulder and lumbar support is up there.

From the choices I think the Palio 1.6 seats are the best.
But given more options, I would have chosen the Front seats of the Matiz.

I'm not praising it because I own one, but I feel really comfortable and It really hugs you. (I never feel strained in the Matiz front seats. Don't know much about the rear cause I hardly sit there :-).

I liked the wagonR's front seats because it is the only hatch in which i can sit with peace of mind that my head will not touch the roof (I am 6'3"+).
The seat does lack a little underthigh support but the backrest is pretty comfortable

has to be the indica - loads of space, especially at the rear
and for a tall person like me - very decent headroom as well (a big minus for the palio here)

Hi !!

I like Santro's erect postured front seats for weak backs although rear seats are the worst.

Overall I would say Palio bcoz of the car's amazing suspension and ride quality in the small segement and also amongst some of the so called C class cars.

Tata Indica, but only in the turbo DLX version

Yes!- There is a marked difference in the design and quality of seats in the DLX and the lower versions.

The Palio's seats for me. Its got the best lower back support out of all the cars I have driven.
