2011 Infiniti M56: Climate-Controlled Seats

June 21, 2011

I've experienced ventilated seats before and they work okay. They aim to prevent your butt, thighs and back from becoming a sticky, swampy mess in sultry weather, and they accomplish this by pushing ambient air from the seats.

Our Infiniti M56 has climate-controlled seats. It's an approach that takes the whole ventilated-seat concept and does it one better. 

Instead of ambient air, the M56's seats send blasts of cold air into your butt and back area.

I cranked it all the way up and it did such a good job of keeping things chilly that it left the back of my pants feeling almost damp. Felt like I was sitting on an Igloo cooler, and when the mercury rises, that's a lot more pleasant than it might sound.

All in all, this feature is a pretty sweet antidote for oppressively hot days.
