5. The Heated Steering Wheel

Buick-Heated-Steering-Wheel

Heated seats are becoming commonplace these days, with even cheap cars like the Mitsubishi Mirage sporting the convenient feature. While our butts appreciate the warmth, it’s our extremities – our hands – that need some extra attention. That’s why we’re thankful for cars that feature a heated steering wheel. These tend to warm up quicker than heated seats and have just as noticeable of an impact. Some cars even automatically turn on the feature if the outside temperature is low enough.

Do you have any other features or trends that you’re thankful for, like LED headlights, or the increase of diesel offerings in the US? Let us know in the comments. From all of us here at AutoGuide.com, we’d like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.
