2016 Honda Civic: Heated Rear Seats

by Cameron Rogers, Associate Editor on May 26, 2016

2016 Honda Civic

Our long-term 2016 Honda Civic's sticker price may seem steep at $27,335, but I think it's perfectly reasonable given its roomy interior and surprisingly potent powertrain.

Another plus is a plentiful features list, which includes automatic headlights, remote start and dual-zone automatic climate control. The Civic Touring also includes a feature that is fairly rare for this class: heated rear outboard seats.

There are only a few competing cars that also offer heated rear seats. The following rivals allow your backseat passengers to toast their buns:

- Chevrolet Cruze Premium with Enhanced Convenience Package: $24,860
- Hyundai Elantra Limited with Tech Package: $25,685
- Kia Forte EX with Premium Plus Package: $26,135
- Kia Soul + with Primo Package: $24,850

The heating function in the Civic is activated by hitting a toggle switch located on the back of the center console. It offers two adjustment modes as opposed to the front seats' three modes, and unfortunately the "Low" is barely perceptible. "High" is the sweet spot though and it provides a good amount of heat without being unbearable.

Well done, Civic.
