I rented a 2012 on three separate occasions and was uncomfortable for all three of them. I'm 6', 240, 36/34 pants but my legs are the majority of my height. I had to adjust how I sat every hour or so on my multiple 3+ hour trips. The worst was not having enough room for my right leg since the console is crammed next to the seats. My right knee would actually be sore from resting on the console. If I adjusted the seat any further back, I had to stretch to reach the steering wheel.

I really enjoyed the gas mileage and I liked the looks of the 08-11 Foci, so I went to the dealer to see if I fit any better in that generation than the newest ones. Sure enough, I did. I feel less cramped and both legs have plenty of room in all but the closest positions on the seat track, and my right leg can lean towards the console without resting on it.
