I'm really struggling with this. I had a bad back pain and thigh pain after a short drive. I'm 6.1 and simply can't seem to find the perfect position. The bucket styled seats makes it worse. My thighs don't touch the seats at all. If I move it backwards, I can rest my thighs, but I have to stretch to hold the steering. Can't rest my legs. Can't rest my thighs. My buttocks complain due to bucket seats. Such a pain, all this. I'm curious to know a how you did it.

I'm planning to add a little cushion by placing a thin pillow on the base to level out the bucket effect. I'm really trying hard to figure out a way out of this!!

Have you played around with the seat height ? IMO thats what makes most of the difference. I fully stretch the seat when there is no one behind me, else I set it 2/3 notches ahead. Its takes a while, but I did manage to find a couple spots. That said, the under thigh support is not all that great, but it hasn't caused me any back ache yet.

Hi,

Is the Punto 1.4L petrol version is still available? Checked with the Fiat Dealership in Chennai, they said only 1.2 L (Petrol) and 1.3L (diesel) cars are currently produced. I was informed that 1.4L is out of production from jan-16.

Is that true?

The 1.4l petrol is still listed on Fiat India's website so my guess is it is available.

The 1.4l hardly sells so the dealers probably don't stock the car. You might want to check with another dealer. Start the conversation with what are all the petrol models available for the Punto and then tell them you are interested in the 1.4l variant. It might also be a built on order variant.

Thank You Sandeepmohan.

Checked with both the fiat dealerships in Chennai. I also gave my details in Fiat's website while downloading the brochures.

It is confirmed that Punto1.4L is stopped since Dec 2015 :(
