When it comes down to vehicles, we’ve all got different tastes. We might like speed, the loud sound of the engine, or cars with a sleek exterior shape. Some of us even like cars that appear to be frowning while others have a thing or two for the Rezvani tank.
Comfort continues to remain one of the most important factors when buying a vehicle. But each consumer has a different definition of what comfort is. We’ve even found that you should take mental notes the minute you open the door.
Consider how easily you can enter the vehicle and slip into the seat, take note of the door handles as well as door weight and height. Also, check if the cushions, paddings, and general-feel are comfortable, avoid seats that’ll cause you to slouch.
We know it can get difficult to quickly spot if a car is comfortable for you so we've gathered the 15 most comfortable cars of 2020 (and 5 that’ll leave you sore).
20. Comfortable: Tesla Model S P100D
Tesla has been spending a lot of resources in designing and producing improved seats. They build their own seats and no longer have to rely on third party seat suppliers. Tesla’s new efficient seats are made of better foam materials and also has an in-built temperature-control system. There’s a lot of cargo space, although there are no door bins. Still, there’s a little shelf under the touchscreen and a couple of deep bins or cupholders to compensate.
19. Comfortable: Porsche Taycan Turbo S
The Taycan Turbo is fast, even for an electric car, clocking 60 MPH in 2.4 Seconds, Porsche has succeeded in making The Taycan like a 911. With great interior designs that succeeds in communicating modern minimalism with very few buttons on the doors and steering wheel. The positions of the seats are very low, contributing to the racy feel. The driver and front passenger enjoy more than enough room, but the rear seats can be considered tight.
18. Comfortable: Audi RS 7
The Audi RS7 Sportback is a large luxury hatchback that combines high performance with an equally remarkable interior. There’s plenty of space. It delivers on speed, hitting 62 MPH in just 3.6 seconds.
The Audi RS7 also supplies great comfort. A massive contributor to this is the RS7’s ‘Super Sports’ seats, which are heated and come with quilted leather upholstery. The racy flat-bottomed steering wheel is also stitched with perforated leather and the dashboard is also covered with high-quality materials. This car guarantees perfect comfort for all your needs.
17. Comfortable: Honda Civic Type R
The Type R has comfortable front seats that will secure your body in place. Although you might end up feeling tight-pressed if you’re on a long journey. The Type R has a steering wheel that can be adjusted up and down as well as in and out. The sloping roof would make it difficult to get comfortable if you choose the back seats.
Its windows are small and the back seats lack enough room for three people but they can easily fit your child. It has a pretty standard load bay and can carry a few suitcases.
16. Comfortable: Honda Accord 2.0T
The Accord has an interior that is surprisingly spacious and rear-seat passengers will love the Accord over many other mid-size sedans. This Accord has beautiful interior furnishings and some creature comforts. The top Touring trim comes with heated and cooled leather front seats, heated rear seats, and a heads-up display.
Lower trim levels also have their appeal, however. Among them: Honda's got attractive and comfortable cloth seats for your maximum comfort.
15. Comfortable: Mazda CX-30
The Mazda CX-30 can seat five people comfortably and has standard cloth upholstery; it also has synthetic leather upholstery, genuine leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, and an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory settings.

14. Comfortable: Range Rover Sport SVR
This amazing car can seat five people in its standard configuration, and the available third-row increases the seating capacity to seven. It has premium leather, power-adjustable front seat. The front seats and rear seats are well heated and ventilated. The front seats also come with additional massage features.

11. Comfortable: Mercedes E-Class
When it comes to comfort, the E-class coupes and cabriolet’s trims can seat four people comfortably and the seats come with the standard leather upholstery. The Wagon models have a rear-facing jump seat and can seat up to seven people.
The front seats are Power-adjustable, well ventilated, and feature massaging qualities, heated front armrests, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, a power rear-window sunshade, and soft-close doors. The E-Class boasts a comfortable interior with supportive seats.
10. Comfortable: Jaguar XF Saloon
The exterior of the Jaguar supersedes the interior by a mile and more. The inside suffers in comparison. The seats, however, are fine, supple and comfortable, there’s a decent amount of space in the back and the boot’s a good size too, but besides that, the Jaguar XF doesn’t introduce any upgrades to this model. Everything is just normal and plain; there’s no shred of excitement when you step inside the Jaguar.
9. Comfortable: Volvo S90 saloon
The Volvo S90 comes with a 9-inch infotainment system, everything inside the Volvo S90 feels sophisticated with metal inlays covering the dashboard. The Volvo hits maximum comfort level when upgrading the standard seats to fabulous Nappa leather items. These leathers are some of the most comfortable and supportive seats you can get in any classy car and they are great.
8. Comfortable: Chevrolet sonic
The 2020 Chevrolet Sonic is quite spacious and comfortable for its size. Available in a hatchback or sedan, the Chevy Sonic has decent room in the front that fits two adults; the rear seats will accept two adults although they’ll need to squeeze in a little.
The hatchback provides 19 cubic feet behind the rear seat, not including a hidden storage bin in the cargo floor. It also has the usual cup holders and a few bins for storing small items.
7. Comfortable: Hyundai Elantra
Despite this vehicle’s size, it can seat five people, with cloth and leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat, the Elantra is designed for user comfort. The seats are comfortable, and with generous legroom in both rows. Some features in the 2020 Elantra include a 5-inch display, a USB port, Bluetooth, and a six-speaker sound system. A 7-inch and an 8-inch touch screen are available, as are Apple CarPlay and a plethora of technology that aims at providing maximum comfort for you.
6. Comfortable: Chevrolet Cruze
The 2020 Chevrolet Cruze can seat five people comfortably. The front seats have heating and power adjusting features that will offer great comfort as you drive. The Chevrolet Cruze also sports a good infotainment system that’ll keep you relaxed through or journey. It also offers keyless ignition and remote start features.
5. Uncomfortable: 2020 Chevrolet Traverse
The 2020 Chevy Traverse has very poor reliability and has been recalled due to structural issues. Several customers have complained that the 2020 Chevy Traverse has several problems ranging from its transmission, in-car electronics, and power equipment. To add insult to injury, the Traverse's has very poor fuel economy, which cannot begin to stand up against the fuel efficiency of other SUVs.
4. Uncomfortable: 2020 Buick Regal
This 2020 Buick has already had a recall. The Buick Regal is a hatchback that lacks all the racy and elegant feels of its earlier predecessors. The drivers of the Buick Regal have raised complaints that the car uses old technology and has very poor comfort for passengers coupled to a lackluster interior.
3. Uncomfortable: 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage
We guess they were seeing a mirage when they designed this one. The car has clumsy handling, and Consumer Reports says outright that you’re better off spending your money on a used car. The Mirage has a cheap and generic interior and lacks proper comfort. It's also very noisy.
2. Uncomfortable: 2020 Volkswagen Atlas
After the Environmental Protection Agency of the U.S. found hundreds of software that could falsify the VW diesel engine emission numbers when tested, VW begun undergoing trying times.
The 2020 Atlas doesn’t satisfy what VW thought it would, even though it looks like the SUV you'd want with third-row seats. This vehicle has very poor reliability ratings and anyone in search of comfort should look elsewhere.
1. Uncomfortable: 2020 Chevrolet Camaro
The 2020 Chevy Camaro has the unimaginative feel you’d expect from a low-end sports car. The design is clichéd and inexpressive sadly it's built with just one person and gets really uncomfortable when a second person joins the ride. This is not the most comfortable ride out there, despite its legendary reputation.
