Off-roaders are usually antonyms to comfort and most of them are specifically developed to be rugged and tough while providing the minimum level of comfort. You could consider yourself lucky if you got some seats for your off-road vehicle...

Premium leather upholstery has been used for all seat surfaces, heat restraints and upper and lower door-trim inserts, while heated front and rear outboard seats are there to be sure you have the right cabin temperature when climbing some rocky mountains.
As optional and only on specific markets, the car is offered with heated wood/leather steering wheel, as well as with hand-polished Burl Walnut wood trim on console, doors and on dashboard-mounted passenger assist handle.
