Well, I suppose comfort is a matter of taste... but I've found Mercedes seats to be more comfortable than any other car's by far, when in good shape (springs not sprung and padding not compressed). The problem is that you have to maintain them, like the rest of the car, and most people don't. VW-type seats, on the other hand (foam over a stiff metal bucket) are comfortable until the foam collapses, and then feel like a church pew---at which point they are basically not fixable unless the entire seat is rebuilt from scratch by a competent upholsterer.
