The Best Cars For A Comfortable Commute

While the world of work has changed considerably over the past few years as a result of the pandemic, one thing that hasn’t changed much at all is the commute. For those of us who haven’t been able to continue working remotely, the commute to and from the office or place of work can be a long and tedious process in the mornings. Busy roads and impatient drivers can lead to uncomfortable and often stressful drives full of traffic that are often far longer than the journey should typically take. While nothing can truly fix the stresses of commuting, there are a number of cars that can make the process just a bit easier and more comfortable, transforming the drive from something you dread to something you might not mind doing every morning and evening. Here are some of the best cars on the market today for a comfortable commute.

Volkswagen Up

For the budget-conscious commuter, the Volkswagen Up is an ideal car for city drives. Its smaller size and swift handling make it perfect for navigating small spaces and weaving in and out of morning traffic as you need with minimal trouble. It comes with the benefit of low running costs, making it an ideal option for those wanting to save a bit on their commute and to top it all off, it’s comfortable too. It can come with ample storage space, convenient and reliable temperature control including air conditioning and pretty impressive infotainment options via the We Connect Go, offering smart driving and easy phone connection for navigation, music, driving analysis and more.

Honda Civic

For a stylish car that works and plays hard, the Honda Civic is a must. With a new hybrid set to be released in Autumn 2022, you could be out on the roads in this luxurious vehicle within a matter of months. The new hybrid offers fuel and electric power without the need to plug in, as the powertrain offers self-charging functionality. There’s enhanced sensing too, offering safety for you and other drivers and pedestrians while driving busy streets through the new front and rear sonar sensors. You are guaranteed a comfortable commute in the Civic, with enhanced Bose audio, a digital driver display with quick and easy information, responsive smartphone connection via the CONNECT infotainment system and even traffic jam assist, which will take away the stress of traffic by utilising acceleration, braking and even steering while in slow traffic.

Mercedes Benz C-Class

For the long-distance commuter, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is certainly worth considering. While the price tag can be a little high for some, it certainly packs a punch and proves worthy of every penny. The C-Class is effectively a miniature version of the S-Class, with a high-tech interior that offers all the best in infotainment and navigation technology, as well as the ‘Airmatic’ suspension for a comfortable, smooth drive. It has enough power to send you easily flying along the motorways, with adaptive cruise control to keep you within speed limits and a safe distance from the car in front of you in heavy traffic. It truly takes the stress out of the commute and lets you relax and enjoy the drive.

Volvo XC40

The Volvo XC40 is perfect for those with busy, family-packed mornings. Need to drop the kids off at school before setting off to work? The XC40 has enough comfort to go around, making the school run and the commute a breeze. It’s not only stylish on the outside but offers plenty of smart storage options for bags and other bits and pieces, a panoramic roof that can brighten up even the gloomiest of mornings and is even designed with improved energy efficiency. The hybrid option offers reduced emissions and fuel savings while maintaining smooth mobility with refined acceleration for both city and motorway journeys. To top it all off, this car is a comfortable one to sit in, too, so even if you do get stuck in traffic, you can do so in the comfort of leather seating, built-in google assist, air purification, Harman Kardon premium sound and plenty of driver assistance technology.
