If you are someone who spends a lot of time in your car for one reason or another, then you are going to want to ensure that your car is as comfortable as possible. The good news is, many modern cars come equipped with lots of creature comforts that really do make them a delight to spend time in, and those that don’t can often be fitted with some of these creature comforts too.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best creature comforts that you are sure to love if you have them in your car:
One of the simplest creature comforts that are likely to give you the most pleasure when driving your vehicle is seat warmers. It’s never much fun getting into a cold car on a chilly morning, but if you have seat warmers installed, then you will be toasty warm in no time at all. Many cars come with seat warmers as standard, so look out for them at car dealerships when buying your next car. In the meantime, you can buy and install removable ones that are just as good, so even if you don’t plan to upgrade your vehicle any time soon, you can have toasty buns too!
Heated steering wheels
As if heated seats were not enough, you can also get heated steering wheels, which are great for those of you who tend to feel the cold in your hands more than anywhere else., They’ll warm up icy hands on cold mornings and help you to feel much more comfortable behind the wheel, so they are always worth paying extra for or having installed if you possibly can, especially if you have conditions like Reynaud’s or arthritis, where the cold weather can really do a number on your hands.
Adaptive cruise control
Cruise control has been around for quite a while now and many of us would not consider it to be a creature comfort at all, but it really is. When you have adaptive cruise control in your vehicle, you can have a much more pleasant time when you’re on the expressway, not having to worry so much about navigating the traffic flow and flowing down and speeding up constantly as the traffic moves and changes; you can simply set the speed control and the car will do most of the work for you, which makes for a much more relaxing drive in most cases!
Hot and cold cup holders
If you are someone who enjoys a beverage when you’re on the road, cup holders that can warm and cool your drink depending on what it is, will feel like the lap of luxury for you.
Individual heater controls
Back to the subject of heat which seems to be a very common feature here, having individual heater controls can help to make your car much more comfortable not only for you but also for your passengers. Most cars are fine at heating up the vehicle as a whole, but they are not always good at spreading that heat evenly or allowing both driver and passenger to ensure they are at a comfy temperature. Individual heater controls change this by allowing the driver and front passenger to each have their own controls to set the temperature just right for them.
If you are someone who loves listening to the radio, whether it be a talk station or your favorite oldies channel, then having a satellite radio is a must. Satellite radios are much more stable, so you are far less likely to lose the signal or experience a drop in the quality of the broadcast, even when you are driving out in the wilds of the country.
If you have to be in your car, then you might as well make it as comfortable as possible, and looking for a car that has, or adding the above features to your existing vehicle is a good way to do just that. Happy driving!
