What's the most comfortable, fuel-efficient SUV?

I'm looking for an SUV that's easy to get into, comfortable to drive for hours at a time and has good fuel economy. Long journeys would be on motorways/dual carriageways. I'm looking at Nissan Qashqai 1.5 diesel, Peugeot 2008 and 3008. Any help, please?

Skoda Karoq, Toyota C-HR, Lexus NX and Peugeot 3008 are the best for comfort. Might also want to consider the Mazda CX-30. We're running a CX-30 long term currently and it's very good - but there's no diesel-engined models in the UK.
