Default crossovers

What is the most comfortable crossover out there? Reading reviews of crossovers, many say things like, "firm ride" (Nissan Juke), "stiff ride" (Mazda CX-7, Mitsubishi Outlander). So which ones make a long trip comfortable?

My dad has a Ford Flex and I'm very impressed by the ride and the amenities offered to the passengers. His is loaded and has (4) bucket seats (all heated, all with the ability to recline and move forward/backward), loads of headroom and legroom, easy ingress/egress, and so many gee-whiz techno toys you don't know what to do with yourself. The ride is firm, but not in the rough sense. Unlike pillow-cushion rides of old, you feel comfortable yet attached to the road all at the same time.

The only issue I have with it is that I find the mid seats to be a little short on the leg portion. I feel like I have to recline the seat back to keep from sliding off the front. Then again, I'm a pretty tall guy so my experience probably varies from most. Other than that, this is the one family vehicle he's owned over the years that I really wouldn't mind borrowing from time to time.

Mike

Budget? Subaru Outback is nice in the 'affordable' category.

That's about what we paid for our Rogue. It's one step below the high-end package. I really like it. It's comfortable, yet still fun to drive, and has nice features.

I'd definitely agree with the Lexus, Buick, and would throw in the Audi and Cadillac. However, I think each are going to be around $35-40K.
