Whether you commute 10 blocks or 10 miles, the car you drive in rush-hour traffic doesn't have to be insufferable. Traffic is an unavoidable evil for many, but the cars driven by commuters can make a big difference in whether they are comfortable and stress-free when they reach their jobs.

Commute to work in a gas-guzzling, loud and clunky car, and chances are you'll be gripping the steering wheel and cursing to the heavens.
