What should be the best part when buying a car? Styles, Performance, Safety or Comfort? If you are among the avid travellers who prefer the fantastic long-distance weekend getaway, a comfortable car must top off your preference list. In the world where car fanatics are being driven crazy by a decent pool of SUVs and compact cars, people might find it confusing by which model would offer them the utmost convenience and comfort. IndianAuto gives you a list of most comfortable cars in India for your perfect far-away commutes.
1. Maruti Vitara Brezza
Price: Rs 7.34 – 11.4 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi)
Maruti Vitara Brezza is the company’s first model in the subcompact SUV in India but it is surprisingly comfortable to drive due to the ample space and a long list of creature-comforts. The new Brezza’s 3995 mm length, 1790 mm width and 1,640 mm height translate into a superior cabin space on the inside, turning the Brezza into one of the most comfortable cars in India.
That said, the Brezza’s cabin is quite convenient with the proper seat's height for the driver and front passengers. There’s also plenty of room for the rear passengers who will enjoy the good visibility through the large windows. The automatic version might have to compromise on the rear foot space since the lithium battery is placed under the front seats but it does not affect so much. The 60:40 split option on the rear seats also offers more space when needed.

Maruti Suzuki has already given the Vitara Brezza a facelift that is packed with a wide range of comfort goodies including windscreen wipers, engine start/stop push button with smart key, smart entry system, rear seat headrest, rear centre armrest with cup holder (for the higher-spec variants), ac vents, vanity mirror, electrically adjustable ORVM, front and rear power windows, front accessory socket, 1000 ml bottle holders in all door trims, electronic power steering among many others.
2. Mahindra XUV300
Price: Rs 8.3 - 12.68 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi)
Mahindra’s successful sub-four-metre SUV, the XUV300 has a lot going for it, one of which is the comfort. In fact, there’re four key points defining the comfort in the Mahindra XUV300, including seating comfort, good visibility, an easy ride and light driving controls. As a result, the Mahindra XUV300 deserves to be here, in the list of most comfortable cars in India.
Albeit having a pretty compact size (almost as big as the Vitara Brezza), the baby SUV is capable of making your city commutes simpler with a high level of comfort. The XUV300’s cabin is an ideal place to stay in by the convenience of advanced features, many of which are segment first. The seats are very supportive and comfy. There’s plenty of storage spaces all around the indulgent cabin of the XUV300. The space for your head and knee are roomy, the backseats are large enough to accommodate three adults on the go.
There are some grouses in the Mahindra XUV300 that are worth noting. The thigh support might be less at the rear while the rear air-con is given a miss. The boot is a bit small compared to the segment.
The Mahindra XUV300 employs both petrol and diesel engine options including a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel unit. Mahindra is currently gearing up for the Sportz variant of XUV300 that is claimed to be more powerful than the 2020 Hyundai Creta.
Hyundai cars have been well-known for scoring big in the comfort department and the Hyundai Creta is one such vehicle. Hyundai Creta has been an acclaimed car name in India for quite some time now with its comfort being one of its unique selling points. The mid-size SUV is set to come back in a new avatar and the 2020 Hyundai Creta is promised to bring the comfort quotient of the previous car to an all-new level.

Being a spacious mid-size SUV, the Hyundai Creta brings in an array of passengers-oriented features that are up to par. While the predecessor has already scaled high in terms of comfort, the 2020 Hyundai Creta endears itself with extra features like air purifier, automatic AC, cooled glove box, paddle shifter, 8-speed Bose premium sound system, panoramic sunroof, driver rearview mirror and so on.
Hyundai has revealed the exact dimensions of the new-gen Creta for India but we expect to be proportional enough to accommodate more spaces on the inside. Particularly, Hyundai’s BlueLink is expected to make it to the Hyundai Creta that would further enhance the entertainment quotient of the car to a greater level, making it a masterfully comfortable car for the long journey.
4. Tata Harrier
Price: Rs 13.69 - 20.25 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi)
Next up in our list of most comfortable cars in India is the country’s pride – Tata Harrier. Tata Harrier is a badass car, not only in terms of engine performance but also in the comfort package. Putting aside the stylish look of the Harrier’s cabin, the perfect seating comfort and space to store many items in the Harrier’s boot are something that makes us fall in love with the home-grown car.
The Harrier gets a nice height for the driver while the cushioning plus is just flawless. The enormous fleeing of room inside the Harrier’s cabin is really cool. In fact, the cabin of the SUV is large enough to seat three abreast like a breeze.
Speaking of the easy drive, the Harrier’s suspension which is co-developed by Jaguar Land Rover and Lotus engineering offers the perfect balance between off-road manoeuvre and high-way stability. The Tata Harrier can dampen the speed breakers and undulations with potholes seamlessly while providing great spaciousness for five adults inside. Overall, the Tata Harrier should be a brilliant choice for your long drive in case you give top priority to comfort.

When it comes to the most comfortable cars in India, it’ll be a sin if the MG Hector is not included in the list. The Hector’s great street presence also means the superlative spaciousness on the inside. The sense of space is even complemented by the massive windows and large panoramic sunroof.
The front seats of the Hector are super-large and decently cushioned. The artificial leather-wrapped steering if good and comfortable to use as well.

7. Toyota Innova Crysta
Price: Rs 15.36 - 23.02 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi)
SUVs aside, MPV also fits well in the list of most comfortable drives in India. The Toyota Innova Crysta might not be the most stylish. However, that couldn’t stop the Innova Crysta from qualifying as one of the most comfortable cars in India.
There’s no need to introduce much about the Innova Crysta’s spacious cabin which has become its own traits. The cabin of the Japanese MPV is very premium and smartly-designed to escalate the highest level of convenience and comfort.
With a capacity to seats 6 people, the Toyota Innova Crysta’s captain seats for the middle row is a benchmark. The front and second-row seats are not only large and cushy, but they are highly adjustable and comfortable for everything so it’s great for long-hour running. Space-wise, there’s giant headroom and knee room available for every occupant. The cargo capacity is also excessive.
Toyota Innova Crysta is a great people mover. It can be easily transformed into a perfect move-around ‘hotel’ just by an act of dropping the second row.
8. Kia Carnival
Price: Rs 24.95 - 33.95 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi)
Filling the decent gap between the luxurious Mercedes-Benz V-Class and the Toyota Innova Crysta, the Kia Carnival is the last name to be called out in the list of most comfortable cars in India. The Carnival is big, stylish and extremely comfortable.
It offers a commanding view out of the road for both drivers and passengers. The space is really ample while the quality of materials is very good. The rear sliding doors make it easier to getting in and out. The seats are all well-cushioned while the range of comfort-focused equipment is just brilliant.
