I got a Quote from Katzkin for my 2016 Pilot EX - Cloth Seats, for 4 Seats Heating Only with Leather Upgrade would cost $ 1895. But with the Big Bend the Mid Package gives a lot of Options for $ 1495 including Heated Seats. Ofcourse No Leather Seats, but its a good deal in my opinion.
I am one of those people who moved to Big Bend, but I welcome this change if it is True that Base gets Heated Seats Standard. Now I am thinking either to get 2.7L engine or go for Sasq. with the extra cash I would save with Base.
