Try a Citroen. They focus on comfort rather than sportiness, with cars like the C3 Aircross and C5 Aircross particularly good for a smooth ride. Most crossover SUVs on small wheels will be pretty good at tackling potholes, too.

Very practical. Comfortable thanks to extra foam in seats and Progressive Hydraulic Cushions. Three individually sliding and folding rear seats good for child seats.
Very spacious with a flexible cabin. Soft ride quality means it's mostly comfy. Interesting looks.
