Quality is one of the most important factors consumers look for when purchasing a vehicle and nothing conveys top-quality quite as well as comfort. Whether comfort means a smooth quiet ride or soft roomy seating, we spend a lot of time in our cars and want to feel at ease while driving. Thankfully, luxurious comfort doesn’t have to come with a premium price tag. Kelley Blue Book recently released their list of “10 Most Comfortable Cars Under $30,000,” highlighting those vehicles that will make daily commutes much more bearable.
#10 Ford Taurus – “With supportive and spacious seating for five, a hushed cabin and a suspension that soaks up potholes, Ford’s full-size sedan is one plush cruiser.”
#9 Chevrolet Cruze – “How did a mainstream compact car sneak onto this list? By including an acoustic-laminated windshield, triple-layered door seals and wheel-well liners for a quiet cabin. And supportive front seats matched with perhaps the smoothest highway ride in the segment.”
#8 Buick Verano – “The Verano coddles its occupants with a hushed cabin and compliant yet controlled ride.”
#7 Toyota Camry – “Already a smooth-riding standout, the perennial best-selling car in the country …is now quieter on the highway and nicer inside than ever.”
#6 Buick Regal – “The Regal is as smooth and quiet as any Buick should be, but also among the sportiest cars ever to wear the badge.”
#5 Honda Odyssey – “Boasting class-leading interior volume, generous legroom for all rows of seats and a supremely quiet cabin, the Odyssey bolsters its reputation as the minivan parents actually want to drive.”
#4 Subaru Legacy – “While Subaru’s standard all-wheel-drive grips the road, its supportive, well-bolstered seats grip bodies. Add a spacious interior, good visibility and easy-to-navigate controls, and you have a car that has a fine way of putting you at ease no matter what roads you tackle.”
#3 Volkswagen Passat – “While satisfying to drive, V-Dub’s mid-size sedan is also adept at absorbing road imperfections, all the while cocooning occupants in a well-appointed interior that features a hugely roomy back seat.”
#2 Chevrolet Malibu – “The all-new Chevrolet Malibu…offers the practicality and affordability of a typical midsize sedan along with a roomy, upscale cockpit and a suspension system capable of taming America’s endless supply of dilapidated asphalt.”
#1 Chrysler 300 – “The Chrysler 300 is a quiet, comfortable, stylish, well-appointed luxury sedan missing just two things: the snooty badge and the sticker shock.”
