Lexus NX (2014 - )

Comfort rating: 9.30

The Lexus NX is a very commodious car and there’s enough space for a family, with plenty of legroom and headroom in the back. Owners say the NX does a great job of ironing out bumps, making it a confidence-inspiring companion on rural roads. Engine noise is also kept to a minimum, thanks to the refined hybrid system.

Skoda Kodiaq (2016 -)

Comfort rating: 9.25

The Skoda Kodiaq is everything a family car should be. Comfortable, spacious, affordable, well-equipped, practical and safe. Owners praised the Kodiaq for its low levels of wind, engine and tyre noise. And even when driving on a rough road, things remain calm for the most part with just the occasional thunk from the suspension over potholes.

Skoda Superb Estate (2015 -)

Comfort rating: 9.21

This offering from Skoda has the quality feel of a premium car, yet costs the same as a family hatchback. But that doesn't come at the expense of passenger space, with the Superb Estate boasting the kind of rear legroom you'd find in the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Then there's the superb ride quality, with the suspension dealing effortlessly with potholes and poor quality roads.

Jaguar XF (2015 -)

Comfort rating: 9.20

The suspension in the XF is impressive, striking a good balance between comfort and engagement when it comes to tackling challenging corners. The cabin is also comfortable and well-equipped. Although not as plush or exciting as a Mercedes-Benz E-Class inside, the interior of the XF is finished to a generally high standard and owners tell us they are very happy with the level of comfort on offer.

Toyota C-HR (2016 -)

Comfort rating9.18

The interior of the C-HR isn’t quite as radical as the exterior, but it has some fun flourishes like vibrant dashboard inlays and a sort of cubist motif on the door cards. It’s very well put together, with a sense of hardwearing longevity. The driver’s seat offers a lot of adjustment, too, so getting comfortable is easy, while ride comfort is rated highly.

Skoda Superb (2015 -)

Comfort rating: 9.06

Well-designed for family life, the Skoda Superb is praised for its rear seats that provide a limo-rivalling legroom, which means even tall passengers will be able to stretch out and relax in the back over long trips. Sound proofing is also excellent, cutting road and wind noise to a mere whisper, while even the diesels operate with a quiet buzz under the large curved bonnet.

Citroen C4 Grand Picasso (2014 - 2018)

Comfort rating: 9.00

The C4 Grand Picasso is extremely spacious, with mountains of front and rear legroom. If you're more concerned with comfort than B-road dynamics, you can't go too far wrong with the Grand Picasso. It's huge, family-friendly and relaxing, plus it comes with a good level of equipment even in the basic trim level.

Mazda CX-5 (2017 - )

Comfort rating: 9.00
