Buying used Skoda cars is a great way to get all the latest features for a fraction of the price that you would pay if you drove the car off the lot new. It’s easy to focus on the latest toys and what’s hiding under the bonnet, but there are other things that you may want to consider. Here, we will be talking about features that will make your life easier and more comfortable when the colder weather sets in. Let’s take a closer look at three of the best cold weather features to look for in your next used Skoda car purchase.
- Heated Seating
A heated driver’s seat used to be a feature that would only be found on premium and luxury models. However, the technology is now far more ubiquitous, and it’s quite easy to get hold of on a pre-owned car. In fact, the heated seating may even go beyond a simple heated driving seat. Perhaps both front seats have heating or maybe even the rear seats too. The best heated seats heat up very quickly to get you comfortable fast and then they back the heat off a little to prevent you from becoming uncomfortably hot. This is a feature well worth having during winter, and it will certainly make your journeys on cold days far more comfortable.
- A Heated Steering Wheel
This is another excellent feature that was previously found only in the top specification models. The steering wheel warms up to get your hands up to temperature and make the steering wheel easier to grip in cold conditions. Some heated steering wheels only warm the sections of the wheel that are gripped most often. Other more luxurious versions heat the entire wheel so that your hands stay warm whilst turning and parking.
- Demisting Door Mirrors
A demisting windscreen is very handy and a fairly common feature on many modern cars. Demisting door mirrors are equally useful, but they can be a little harder to find on a used car. The effort is worth it, try to clear a door mirror can be a real pain on a cold day. These door mirrors contain a heating element that can dry off any mist and get the mirrors clear in just a few minutes.
