Best medium SUV for rough roads?

Asked by Mark Petersen

I've been a sedan lover all my life and still am. However, due to the shocking state of our roads I am looking for a soft-riding SUV to drive to work as I do about 800km a week. I have been looking at a Mazda CX-5 Maxx, Hyundai ix35, Jeep Cherokee Sport or a Nissan X-Trail. Which of these would be the softest riding over the rough potholed bitumen surfaces that our Gippsland highways have become?

For your main requirements, I'd avoid all four of your shortlisted models and go for a Subaru Forester or Outback. They are more car-like but will still handle the rough roads.
