2014 Nissan Rogue: Seat Heater Review
September 30, 2014
Too many car companies do seat heaters wrong. Not Nissan. The bun warmers in our long-term 2014 Nissan Rogue are the template for others to follow.
The Rogue's seats heat up quickly and get nice and toasty. But not too hot. Even on their highest setting, the Rogue's seats never get too intense.
They also distribute their warmth evenly with no hot or cold spots. And unlike some seat heaters that concentrate only on the tush, Nissan's seats perfectly warm the small of your back along with your glutes and upper thighs.
Even the control button is well thought out. It's not only conveniently placed on the console, but it can be left on either the "LO" or "HI" setting. That way the seat is always active and warming you up as soon as you fire up the car. In most vehicles, you need to manually activate the seat heater each time.
This feature, along with the Rogue's well shaped seats, make this a very comfortable crossover.
