As for comfort - I was fine in the left seat. The trip included everything from 70mph interstates, 50mph divided highways, big city streets in traffic, suburban streets and business districts, local, state and national park roads, flats and mountains, and CA-1 from Morro Bay to Monterey and in Marin County as well as through Mendocino and the redwoods. My only discomfort was major commuter traffic stoppages for which the nav system provided no info or help. (in fact when I managed to get off a blocked freeway, it just told me to get back on immediately). Meanwhile in the right seat, my wife made the adjustment to the shorter leg room and very low dash to knee clearance. Less than perfect for long legs but tolerable. She was less happy with how the seat backs hit her shoulder blades.
The AC and heat were superb.
The voice control was helpful for getting the radio tuned to those low power AM travel advisory frequencies.
In a couple of parking lots, a car that arrived after us seriously crowded our driver door (BMWs taking max driver side space both times). It's easy to get in or out when the door opens wide but not if it only opens 8 inches. One of those times, I had to climb in from the passenger side.
Overall ride quality and handling - excellent.
