What's the most comfortable car you could recommend?

I'm 69 with arthritis and sensitivity to vibration. I need a very comfortable ride/seat with a high seating position. My comfort standard is a Citroen XM. Is there anything at all that comes close?

You could try a Citroen C5 with Hydractiv 3 suspension that is like driving a mattress (they don't all have Hydractiv 3). But I was noticeably very comfortable indeed in a 2007 Honda C-RV that I ran in 2007. Big, soft seats. Big 18-inch wheels. And I think 60 profile tyres.
