    How comfortable is a car, how can it be decided?

    It is generally seen that the price of a car is its comfort. If we have to manually check which car is so comfortable, then what facts should we consider at that time? For choosing the comfortable car in low amount, I know its quite tough but anyone explain it.

    Car is basically meant for a comfortable journey from one place to other. Let us try to distinguish luxury from comforts. When we travel for long hours then we might get backache and other bodily inconveniences which may indicate that the car seats are not designed in a proper manner. Some car manufacturer claim that their seats are ergonomically designed. If it is so we can have a comfortable journey in them. Another thing is the heating and cooling systems in the car because when we go out in winters or summers then these systems should work properly and the comfort of the car can be found from these two factors as one should not feel hot or cold inside it in different seasons.

    In my perception the car should not be big enough for comforts but it should have simplified internal design so that the space is utilised properly. In emergency if we have to manually tow or push the the car to the side of the road then that time a small car becomes a boon. From technical point of view the air filter and fuel filter in the car should be cleaned and serviced so that they should not pose any problem while travelling. That of course helps in fuel efficiency also. Let us see the comfort from the view of the person who is driving the car. He would like a good brake and smooth accelerator for manoeuvring the car with soft touches. It implies that before a journey we must get the car serviced thoroughly.

    Another point which is to be understood in this context is that the tyre air pressure is a crucial thing which makes us comfortable in a journey because it will have a bearing on the jumps and vibrations in the car while plying on the roads which is definitely related to our comforts while sitting inside. So, it is imperative to keep the tyre pressure as per the guidelines for that particular car model.

    Next consideration is the luggage space in a car. A small car is generally more comfortable but when it comes to luggage keeping, one aspires for a bigger one. So, that is one consideration we have to ponder over and decide the size of the car we are going to buy.

    Based on all these consideration, I would suggest to go for a mid segment car not very small and not very big, preferably in hatchback model, capable to take at least 5 people (including the driver). This would be a comfortable car in my view.

    Knowledge is power.
