    Seat heaters are not really a new technology and this is one of the easiest features for the manufacturer to add to their list of options if they see profit from it. It's the new tech like auto cruise control or automatic brakes that manufacturers like Honda/Acura have issues with...

    A heated steering wheel should be the priority over heated rear seats in my opinion. I am not sure why Honda did not included a heated steering wheel in the Civic or Ilx. I'm looking to replace my Dart that has one and really would rather not have to give that up.

    My 2010 TSX doesn't even have this, to the chagrin of my kids. I hope this feature makes its way into the Si, which I expect to be a strong candidate to replace the TSX in a couple of years.

    It's not on. There are LEDs for high or low.

    I find it interesting that they heat the rear seats, but upholster them in different-looking and probably cheaper material than the front seats.

    I think this car's interior actually looks quite nice. It's not BMW or Lexus nice, but considering the price, I have no complaints.

    It cost less than $28,000.00. I would like you to list other cars that costs less than the Civic Touring with all the same features. Automatic Cruise, forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane keep assist, LED headlights, sunroof, remote start with keyless access, automatic climate control, navigation, power driver and passenger seats, heated seats front and rear, rain sensing wipers and many other features.

    I'll wait.

    I would rather have rear AC outlet for the people back there. You need AC like 50% of the year, heated rear seats? Like maybe 5-10%?
