Agree with you, Gas filled shock-absorbers are more sophisticated and more effective in maintaining comfort while driving on bumpy roads,compare to the conventional one.

Mechanically, the damping effect of oil-filled gas absorbers decreases with prolonged usage, because air keeps mixing in oil and oil gets thinner due to heat.
However, re-filling the oil based shocks is much more economical then gas-filled shock-absorbers.
So besides durability, there is no major difference in both type of shocks.

Hi Digvijay, As far as bumpy rides are concern the SUV's are best suitable vehicles for them. However, these days small cars are coming with powerful and new generation suspension systems, like the recently launched Maruti A-Star, Ford Figo and Volkswagen Polo model is equipped with Mac-Pherson Strut and Coil Spring type of shock absorber, which makes it very efficient in handling the power sequence while on the drive. Among these cars Volkswagen Polo is the best car as far as comfort on bumpy rides is concern.
