In Calgary's four-season climate, the latter may seem to be a better option. 

Is a hardtop really more suitable? Let's take a look at the pros and cons. 

 
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. 

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.

However, for smaller sedans, these units are typically a luxury rather than a necessity. 

A three-sector climate control system allows the driver, passenger, and rear-seat riders to create their own temperature bubbles independent of the others in the van. 

With automatic systems, like the one on the Pacifica Touring, you can set the temperature, and the vehicle will keep it at that level until you change it. Some cars, however, require you to make adjustments manually. 

It is important to make a distinction between tri-zone climate controls and rear vents. Many minivans and SUVs have back-row heat and air-conditioning outlets behind the centre console. In single or dual-sector cars, these do not have separate settings, so they release air at the same temperature and speed as the front.

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, as well. 

Ventilation features typically rely on small fans or blowers that draw air from the cabin and circulate it through the seat. The surface of the chair is porous, allowing the cooling flow to directly contact the driver and passenger. You can 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 sunshine. Without this element, the solar heat gain would make sitting almost unbearable. 

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