2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Split-Zone Heated Seats

March 27, 2013

2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged

Sometimes it's nice to have some heat on your back, especially during a long drive when things can get a little stiff. The downside with heated seats is that although you'd like some back heat, you most certainly do not need butt heat. With a vast majority of cars, that's the reality.

Not so with Jaguar, as well as many GM vehicles off the top of my head. If you press the "Seat Zone" button, it turns off the butt zone and instead focuses the heat on the back section.

This is an excellent feature and I wish more cars offered it.
