“If a comfortable ride is a top priority, you need to look for vehicles with a few different options: lumbar support, an adjustable seat, and possibly heated seats. With these three features, you can adjust the seat to your liking, and the heated seat may soothe any pain you start to experience during a longer drive.
In general, luxury cars tend to have the most comfortable seats thanks to a number of adjustable seat features. Top choices include the following:
  • BMW 7 Series
  • Lincoln Continental
  • Mercedes-Benz E-Class
  • Kia Optima
The Optima is the most affordable option of the four, and it’s consistently ranked high for those with back pain. “
