upholstery comes with heated, cooled, and massaging front seats. Not forgetting
the passengers, the rear seats are also heated and cooled. The mixture of
comfortable seating, spacious room, and an ample trunk space make the Taurus an
excellent purchase for families or those who will be going on road trips.
