SUVs are rising in popularity, and it’s not without reason. They are practical, spacious and in the past few years, manufacturers have even made them stylish. With that in mind, we realize that the SUV is not just a family car, but chances are if you have one, you have a heart for practicality. After space and reliability, how comfortable a car is for the driver is a question that comes to mind, and you don’t realize how bad of a time you could be having until you have a truly uncomfortable driver’s seat.

Volkswagen Tiguan

The Volkswagen Tiguan is on the top of many lists for most comfortable front seats among the various small SUV contenders this year. The Tiguan has a starting price of around $25,000, making it an affordable option for comfort. Appearance-wise, the Tiguan interior and seats are nothing to look twice at. They are pretty basic and don’t have the ‘wow’ factor of some more expensive higher-end cars. The seat design is overall comfortable with a decent amount of padding, and they can be adjusted in several ways.

Dodge Durango

The Dodge Durango is up next and takes the place of the most comfortable front seats among midsized SUVs. The front seats of the Durango were designed with comfort in mind. Plushly padded with lots of support, you could spend hours commuting to work, driving to soccer games, or on a road trip without getting a stiff back. The material used for the padding makes the seats a little bit stiffer, giving them a more ergonomics-first feeling than making you want to relax into a La-Z-Boy recliner. The base models start at $30,000, and higher-end models top out at around $62,000 but offer more adjustments that can be made to the front seats.

How Reliable Is the Dodge Durango?

The BMW X5 is the luxury SUV with the most comfortable front seats of the year. The X5 has a beautiful interior with mostly decent-looking seats, not as luxurious as some high-end Mercedes but still incredibly comfortable. The front seats feature a number of electronically adjustable seating options, and the bottom seat cushion can be manually extended for additional leg support. The leatherette material covering the seats is comfortable to the touch and rigid enough that you don’t have to worry about much wear or tear after a few years.

While many more SUVs still have comfortable and beautiful interiors, these might be the cream of the crop. All three SUVs are great options for more than just their comfortable front seats and offer all of the styling and practicality you could dream of from an SUV – but being comfortable is definitely a great, underrated perk.
