A lot of people actually prefer a straight back. It is much better for your neck and spine, posture wise. Anyone with lumbar or cervical issues will always prefer a relatively straight back. This is one of the things people appreciate only when they have such issues or when age starts catching up with them.

For what it’s worth, my mum finds the Punch’s back seat to be the only one in the budget segment today in which her neck doesn’t start paining. I find is very comfortable myself.

Ideally, they should provide adjustable recline angle, so that people can have the best of both worlds. Unfortunately, those days of the old Jazz and Ecosport are now behind us.

I completely agree. I found the backseat VERY comfortable for the 30 odd KMs ride. It is for sure better for senior citizens both ingress/egress and seating posture. Just for comparison, my mom found it difficult to get from the i20 backseat.

Off-Topic post-

Wouldn't want to take this thread off-topic, but for the sake of letting you know, I'll let you know that the Citroen I am talking is not the India-spec C5 Aircross launched last year but the Global C3 Aircross which has been on sale since 2017 in different countries.

Hence yes, I won't rule out the case that the Tata Punch displayed as a concept in "2020" could be nothing but a pure cut paste job of the "2017" C3 Aircross except for the curves and the quarter glass. The fact that Tata has taken heavy inspirations from many other cars in the past makes my case stronger!

P.S.- If you want to discuss this topic further, please take it to a Tata Punch thread. Wouldn't want to dilute this thread with off-topic discussion of the Punch!

Agree , we should not take this off topic. Could be difference of opinion but don't think Punch looks anything like global C3 aircross.(image download from link you have provided)

We canceled the booking of Punch. The Punch creative variant was nearing 11 lakhs INR on-road, and I did not think its worth that much price. I would have probably given it a thought if Tata had given the option of the iTurbo engine in the top end.

We ended up buying another Scross for my wife, at 10.5 lakhs on-road and we are very happy with the decision.
