As long as there have been cars, there has also probably been the debate of who gets the front seat. Whether it’s because the back seat makes a person sick, someone feels left out sitting in the backseat or you have kids that are constantly arguing who gets the honor of sitting up front, you have probably heard many, many times the argument that goes on over that coveted front seat. Well now, automakers seem to be coming to the aid of those back seat passengers.
A new trend has heated up in the auto industry: seat heaters for rear passengers. Whether this trend is due to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommending kids ride in the backseat until the age of 13 or 80 pounds in weight, or that families want to transport their families in sedans once again, the auto industry is answering the call of consumers. Rear heated seats used to only be available in luxury cars, but this is changing. The best part of this trend is that rear seated heats are now available in more affordable sedans. One such mid-size sedan that is now offering rear-seated heats is the 2013 Kia Optima. Starting at $21,350, you can get this luxury sedan at an affordable price. The 2013 Kia Optima EX starts at $24,425. By adding on the EX Premium Package for $2,950 you can get the rear seated heats across the back seat bench, plus a panoramic sunroof for an added feeling of space. All this is available for $27,375.
