You know, your gridlock commute doesn't have to be so bad.
Jalopnik reader/American Hero 3.14 rad/s fit a Keurig between the seats of an AW11 MR-2. Would could be better than the sweet taste of coffee, and victory in traffic?
We should all aspire for such greatness.
A new diesel Golf is comfortable enough to sit in for a while, and you won't burn too much fuel doing it. Plus, when the traffic clears up, you can enjoy all that delicious torque.

Any older American boat would be acceptable, but Cadi-Lackidaisical can tell you why an old Fleetwood is the best:
"[It has] a front bench seat so you can actually stretch out, seats that are like a sofa, and when the road opens up you can haul ass home with the LT1 under the hood."
Not the most fuel efficient option, but the plushness will more than make up for that.

From reader nermal:
"A big-ass truck. Any of the newer ones will do, as long as it's a crew cab and a higher trim level. Since you're up off the ground, you can see farther ahead, which helps you determining if the traffic jam is clearing up, or you're going to be there for a while. If you need to change lanes, just put your blinker on and go for it. People won't leave space, but they'll get out of your way.
Also, their interiors are designed for sitting in for long periods of highway drives, so you'll be comfy."

With a nice Westy, you've got more than plenty of room to stretch out, and if traffic is really bad, you can make a quick meal.
It's even better if you're not the one doing the driving.
A Range Rover is one of the most comfortable, luxurious trucks on the road today, which makes it more than capable to creep along in traffic. Plus, if you ever found a dirt road to your office, it would be more than up to the task.
If you've sat in a modern Volvo, you know exactly why this car is here; the seats.
Patrick described the seats in a 2015 V60 as "the pinnacle of human achievement," and he's not exaggerating at all.

Whether you're the driver or passenger in a new S-Class, you'll be cocooned in luxuriant comfort. Set the seats for massage, put some Mozart on the Burmester stereo, use the in-car perfume system, and relax.

No, the Model S isn't as comfortable as an S-Class, but that's not to say it's like a Lotus Elise. Combine that with the fact that you're hardly using any electricity as you creep along, and you have a pretty great gridlockmobile.
Traffic sucks. Having a comfortable car with an automatic makes it much better, but it'll be fantastic when we can kick back and relax as if we're on public transport in our own cars.
