Cooled seats are still surprisingly rare in the lower price bracket, but here are seven models worth considering with that feature.
2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Leather Plus ($37,390)
The highest-priced vehicle on our list still comes in at under $40,000. This Cherokee is plenty adept at offroading, but if you're not too proud to admit you want luxury features while traversing trails, Jeep will give you that option in this car.
2017 Ford Mustang Ecoboost Premium ($35,398)
Next on our list is this Mustang equipped with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Mustangs of yesteryear certainly weren't known for their luxurious amenities, but things are a lot different in 2017.
2017 Ford Fusion Titanium ($35,048)
Another Ford that offers cooled seats in the mid-$30K range. If you're more a family man/woman, the Fusion will offer more usable rear seats. It's the people at the front who will reap the benefits of cooled seats on a hot summer day, though. Just make sure to opt for this $600 option.
2017 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L Limited ($34,649)
If Fords aren't your thing, Hyundai offers ventilated seats in the Sonata's 2.4L. The only catch is that you'll have to move way up the Sonata trim and equipment levels to get them. To be fair, that's the case with a lot of the cars on this list.
2017 Chrysler 200S ($31,235)
The 200S is a good-looking machine that offers ventilated seats in the low-$30K price range. Cooling your bum is a $995 option - we'll leave it up to you if Canada's summers are worth that price.
2017 Kia Soul EX Tech ($28,095)
The first vehicle on this list that comes in under $30,000. Kia has long been known for its high-value models, and while competitors are catching up in that regard, there aren't a lot of choices in this price range if you want cooled seats. The Soul is already kind of a cool car; this only makes it cooler.
2017 Kia Forte SX A/T ($27,295)
The most inexpensive model on our list is another Kia, in the form of the Forte SX compact car. We're confident it's only a matter of time before the Forte's many competitors begin adding cooled seats, but until that time, Kia has itself a virtual monopoly when it comes to ventilated chairs.
