As the mornings become darker and colder, it's getting harder and harder to crawl out of bed and into the car.
However, in the sleepiness of this early morning routine, there is something that can help. Heated seats. It's a pleasant surprise that our medium-level ASX, which has a generally average spec, features this handy little extra. But it would be easy to miss: the slightly rickety button is almost hidden to the inner side of your seat and has two settings, though both seem to offer the same temperature. Staying in bed is better, but heated seats certainly make the transition to reality easier.
