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.

Lexus ES300 - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Garden Grove, California
Very professional, but although cool in a sense. On time actually arrived at site earlier than expected that was a plus. Also very thorough, and gave recommendations. Thanks alot Chriss.
Jaguar F-Type - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Mission Viejo, California
If I could give Chris 100 stars I would. Above and beyond in every way. He's super knowledgeable, informative, responsive and above all patient. He doesn't hesitate to make sure all your questions are answered and that you feel comfortable taking the plunge buying a car sight unseen. He was our eyes when we couldn't be there to inspect the car, and informed us of any red flags regarding how the car operates now and what to look for in the future. Ask for Chris, he's fantastic, an expert in automotive knowledge, and a first class professional.

Ford Explorer - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Las Vegas, Nevada
Very happy with the pre-inspection service. He was in contact from when he left to when he arrived at dealership to a FULL Sheet of info right after the inspection. Raymond helped make me feel at ease buying the car after having his professional opinion that everything was good. The one thing he did recommend I mentioned to the dealership and they took care of it before I even bought the car. :) Thanks so much for your expertise. I would definitely use this website again for any future services I may need.

Honda CR-V - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Marietta, Georgia
Prompt and knowledgeable. David arrived early to do our pre-purchase car inspection and completed it in a timely fashion. He communicated his findings, recommendations by phone and text message, which was nice. I appreciated the information and details he provided.
Mercedes-Benz E400 - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Kennesaw, Georgia
David called when he arrived and called shortly after he finished inspecting the vehicle. Unfortunately, due to the inefficiency of the sales representative at the dealership, David was not able to drive the vehicle as the final phase of the inspection.
