This is not directed at anyone in particular, just throwing it out there...

I think that everybody is different, and comfort is going to vary drastically between individuals.

Can't really go by what other people say, but you can definitely keep the opinions in mind and see for yourself. Comfort is a little more complicated than weight & height, and for many people I would argue that it is really psychological. I have seen some pretty ridiculous scenario's where I found it a little unbelievable but..... Who's can argue with someone saying they either are or are not comfortable? :p

I am not sure I see the logic behind complaining about a lack of interior space though, when specifically picking out the smallest car in the lineup. Ford sells plenty of boats. It is unfortunate though that some people may miss out on this vehicle based on not finding it spacious/comfortable enough.

But if spaciousness is high on the needs list, I am not sure why a Fiesta would even be on a persons shopping list of vehicles.

Seat position/visibility are also huge factors in a persons level of comfort, and also vary widely regardless of size.

All I know is that I do not at all enjoy driving a vehicle if I am not happy with the driving position and visibility. So if I knew I wasn't going to be pleased with that aspect of the vehicle, I would absolutely not buy one.

Still don't have mine, but having driven the Titanium Fiesta, and the Focus ST I am pretty confident I'll be happy in the FiST.

My 2010 Camaro on the other hand.... I pre-ordered that without ever having been in one... And I think that had I had the opportunity to test drive one beforehand, I likely would never have purchased one no matter how bad I wanted it.... I never got over the awful visibility in that thing throughout my ownership of the vehicle.

Anyway, if you are already concerned about comfort/visibility/seat position and haven't been in one yet, I'd strongly suggest getting some seat time in one before committing to the purchase. That's not something you want to find out after the fact.
