The Best Used Cars to Buy If You Get Motion Sickness

Used Cars Motion Sickness

For people that suffer from motion sickness, even on the shortest car trip, riding in a vehicle can prove to be unbearable. What’s great is that there are a number of cars on the market that can help to greatly decrease, if not eliminate your motion sickness all together. Let’s take a closer look.

Must-haves

Motion sickness can occur even in a short journey, so with that said, the car needs to be built to perform on all terrain, in all weather conditions, and no matter what the length of the drive is.

  • A smooth ride without bumps and jars
  • Smooth braking and accelerating
  • Independent climate control
  • Plenty of windows
  • Easy to clean interior

Top five cars

Here’s a look at some cars that combine a number of the must-haves and work to provide drivers with a comfortable ride.

  • Chevrolet Impala: Sure this one may not be much to look at, but it is well known for its comfortable ride. The ride itself is described as "soft," which means you won't have to worry about those jarring and bumpy moments. As Kelley Blue Book describes the 2012 V6 3.6 liter engine offers a "velvety-smooth, silent, and strong" ride. Shifting gears is "seamless."

  • Buick Lucerne: You'll have to dig back a little further to find the Lucerne. The last year this model was made was 2011. This one was meant to look like a luxury car with sporty features.

  • Audi A6 Premium Plus: Audi had to make the list and this sedan model is an excellent option. The interior is as plush and rich as you can imagine, which plays into the ride itself. Even the fuel economy is good on this car.

  • Chrysler 300: Upon first impression the Chrysler 300 is a very luxurious looking car, but as you look closer you'll see there is much more. The design of this car is due to a partnership between Chrysler and Mercedes-Benz, which means you're getting all the comfort, quality, and smoothness of a Mercedes.

  • Hyundai Azera: Hyundai really hits it out of the park with the Azera, which appears on the Kelley Blue Book 10 Most Comfortable Cars list. This one has a soft ride, plenty of space inside, and the seats themselves are roomy. Hyundai includes many features as standard rather than optional, so you get plenty of bells and whistles.

Final thoughts

Unfortunately, when it comes to motion sickness it’s a little bit of trial and error and testing the waters. You may want to ask for advice from a professional to help lead you in the best direction.
