Heated rear seats was a good call for them to make when configuring these since it's going to be geared towards people that will have rear seat passengers more often. Now they just need to keep this up and keep making vehicles more geared towards a better in-cabin experience.
That's a nice added touch. Kids will be happy about it. Canada is cold and those heated seats can make a lot of difference.

They almost have to do it since it's one of the angle they can target hard, other angles require moving much more away from what they've established about the brand so far.
