Is the Fiat Panda 4x4 suitable for tall drivers?

My wife is considering a Fiat Panda 4x4. We have a narrow garage for which it would be ideal; however, I am over six foot in height, with a bad back. Would the seating and ride comfort be good enough? Alternatively, can you recommend another suitable vehicle of similar size?

The Panda 4x4 TwinAir and Panda Cross 4x4 TwinAir are great, but you had better check you can get comfortable first: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/fiat/fiat-panda-cr.../ You could also consider the Peugeot 2008 1.2 PureTech 110or 130 with Grip Control: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/peugeot/peugeot-20.../ If 4WD capability is not important, then the best small car for tall people is the Citroen C3 Picasso, now available with 1.2 PureTech engines: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/citroen/c3-picasso-2.../
