4 wheel drive by far the most important one on this list. Who the hell needs heated arm rest and cup holders? Stupid!!!

Most of this is pretty ridiculous with the exclusion of heated windshield, mirrors, remote start, wipers and having snow tires. I won't ever be paying for a heated scarf, foot warmers, steering wheel, seats and such, lol, after the vehicle is running for ten minutes my feet, hands, neck and butt are warm anyway.

I know 2 they missed - a bottle of windshield washer fluid and a good ice scraper/brush !!

Things like engine block heaters, remote start, 4 wheel drive, snow tires, and headlight washers have been around since before, and in some cases just after the hippies went extinct.

The car's best weapon against winter? Keep it in the garage!

Winter tires and all wheel drive are 13 and 14?  All those heated accessories are okay, I suppose, but job one is to GET THERE.  Your heated steering wheel won't seem so great if you are neck deep in a snow filled ditch and can't even get the door open.
Get some decent tires.  If you are buying a car you might consider 4 wd or "all wheel drive".  Know that "all wheel drive" sometimes is set up to brake a spinning wheel, and as hi tech as that sounds, when you are on iffy icy traction, the braking effect can cripple your forward progress.  As can traction control.  Positraction (limited slip) will help you all the time, and if you have a pickup a locked rear axle in back will help.

I love how "winter tires" are actually listed as a feature.

Studded snow tires are best for handling snow & ice, for both front & rear wheel drive cars, and even for 4x vehicles.in wintry states.

OK...we are officially a nation of light weights......all wheel drive and good tires are what came to mind...plus sand and shovel in the trunk. Their list makes me think no wonder we are a nation of teletubs.

 

My "other" needed a 500 buck remote starter because it was cold in the car, and hot in the summer...sheez.

The features are nice, I just can't afford the price. Plain n simple.
