While Dallas has many wonderful traits, neither visitor nor citizen has ever gushed over sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the city’s highways. While the traffic can sometimes seem to go on forever, modern vehicles have enough comfort and entertainment built in to you keep you comfortable during touch-and-go traffic. We’ve listed our four favorite vehicles to keep you and your passengers as comfortable as possible — read on to discover our favorites!
The Hyundai Elantra is a stylish compact vehicle that is not only affordable but also incredibly comfortable. It comes with all the touches that customers have come to expect from the Hyundai brand. Top-of-the-line infotainment means that riders can stream their favorite music or podcasts from their phones to the infotainment unit without fiddling with aux cables. Hands-free calling also makes it easy to keep your family or work up-to-date on how the traffic is flowing.
Tesla Model S
While in the pricier range, the Tesla Model S is a tribute to Tesla’s renowned car design. Sleek and modern on the outside, the Model S is spacious and comfortable on the inside with more than enough room to stretch out during long waits in traffic. Plus, the Model S gets a crazy 102 MPGe in the city and 105 MPGe on the highway, so you don’t need to worry about wasting your money.
The Model S also comes with tons of entertainment technology, like satellite radio and music streaming. Listen to podcasts while you wait out the traffic, and forget about breathing in smoggy traffic air: the Model S features a medical-grade HEPA air filtration system that removes close to 100 percent of exhaust fumes and other nasty chemicals from the air.
With an acoustic windshield to keep the traffic noises at bay and an upgraded, luxurious interior, the 2017 model of the Subaru Forester is an affordable and roomy vehicle that can make even the most frustrating traffic a little easier to bear. A loaded infotainment system comes with optional navigation, so you can see how far the traffic goes on while listening to your favorite tunes.
Nissan Titan XD
Nothing says Texas like a huge truck, and the Nissan Titan XD delivers on that front. Colossally large, the Titan XD is also remarkably comfortable. Quilted leather seats and a commanding view of the road ahead makes the truck feel more like a room on wheels than a vehicle. Plus, the beastly V8 engine makes the truck a joy to drive when the road does clear up.
The interior of the Titan XD is the true shining point of the car. Heated and cooled front seats make sitting in traffic, whether its freezing or sweltering out, a breeze. Hands-free texting means you can communicate with coworkers and friends without taking your eyes off the traffic, and its full suite of integrated apps includes music services so you can listen to your favorite satellite radio channel or stream music from your phone.
Traffic isn’t fun for anyone, but these vehicles can make dealing with frustrating commutes easier and more comfortable than ever.
