Poor Anthropometry...with faulty ergonomics..
Recently on 2nd Jan. 2018 I have bought Fiat Punto Evo Active-1.3 Diesel, Honestly I would like to share my experience, This could be the best car in its segment if FIAT would precisely work on Anthropometry and Ergonomics.-Steering is too hard to operate in traffic, its feels like I am driving a 2nd hand manual steering car.
-Steering wheel's diameter need to be reduced, its not as handy as other rival cars, cant achieve confident b'cos of large steering wheel.
-Even Steering rod is placed next to the clutch paddle; that causes a lot problems in traffic, my leg get stuck between clutch paddle & steering rod.
-Missing comfort in Active model on long run, I got lumbar pain in just 30 mins of drive.
-Gear rod is not comfortable; can't find easy gear shift.
-Unresponsive car in terms of steering and Gear.
-You can feel jerks on gear rod while pick up in any gear.
-Poor music system, sound get distorted on max vol;
-Interiors could be better as compared to exterior.
-Even company doesn't provide basic accessories like mud flaps
-Not worth of money; its better to increase budget and go for other. Apart from these, great pick-up, nice handling*, full of power with responsible breaks, gorgeous sporty look, adequate cabin space, best ground clearance, best suspensions, which can handle almost roads..
