In Calgary's four-season climate, the latter may seem to be a better option - allowing you to better adapt to the constant shift of sleet, slush, and showers. 

Still not sure whether a hardtop is the right option for you and your Jeep? Let's take a look at the pros and cons. 

 
Jeep Wrangler Hardtop: Pros

1. Hardtops offer better noise control so, if you value a quiet ride, they are the obvious choice. 

2. Due to its superior insulation, this option is better able to handle winter weather.

3. Hardtops are also easier to clean, and they do not require any special washing solutions. 

Jeep Wrangler Hardtop: Cons

1. Hardtops take longer to remove and reinstall.

2. They do not have the classic "convertible" look. 

3. They take more space to store, which means you will be getting less cargo room than with a soft-top.

There are distinctive advantages to the hardtop choice - though, drivers may be quick to note the potential problems. If you would like to this option in action, contact our Calgary dealership today. We will happily schedule a demonstration on a new Jeep Wrangler.

This feature is also common on luxury vehicles, and it usually comes standard for the front row, though some cars offer it in the rear seats for outboard passengers, as well. 

Ventilation features typically rely on small fans or blowers that draw chilled air from the cabin and circulate it through the cushion. The surface of the chair is porous, allowing the cooling flow to directly contact the driver and passenger. You can easily control the temperature with a dial on the dash or centre console. 

This feature can be especially useful on long trips, and it proves invaluable when you park outdoors in the warm sunshine. Without this element, the solar heat gain would make sitting almost unbearable. Ventilated seats can also reduce sweating and dry any moisture between the body and the seat, which is especially helpful to have during hot Alberta summers.

Most vehicles that offer this cooling feature, including the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, have both heating and ventilation units for year-round comfort. If you would like to try one for yourself, contact our Calgary dealership today to schedule a test drive.
