What cars have heated cloth seats?

I don't necessarily like leather seats but would like to have heated seats. All manufacturers seem to install heated seats on cars with leather interiors. Can heated seats be added to a cloth interior car, and what are the pros and cons?

There’s nothing like walking out to your car in the morning in the dead of winter, getting into the leather seats then cursing aloud as your uncovered lower back reaps the wrath of leather-induced frost bite. What, it’s never happened to you?

Cloth seats are more forgiving in weather extremes, but aren’t commonly equipped as heated seats. There are automakers out there that do offer cloth seats, though. We’ve compiled a list below, but if any of our readers owns a car with heated cloth seats, feel free to leave a comment below.
