GLE 350d Ventilated Seats?

Can anyone tell me if you can get Ventilated (Cooled) seats in the 350d? I've looked at a cpl testers at the lots and none seem too have them. I know you can get them in the coupe or the higher end models. Haven't been able to find a pic of the SUV 350d with the Cooled seats option though...

Thank you

Yes - you can get Ventilated seat option with either Leather or MBTex for this 2016 model year - prior year Ventilated feature required leather interior - frankly, MBTex material does not get as "sun hot" as leather can get - MBTex has a cotton webbing layer/component that distributes sun warmth - where leather tends to "clump" heat at heated spot - just my 2 cents from expereince..

Perfect! Thanks for the response. Do you know where on the build and price it shows cooled seats? Maybe a part of a package?

Having had both materials I disagree. I found the MBTex lead to sweaty *** on a hot day while the leather seems to feel cooler, even without the ventilated seats turned on.

Just my opinion however.

Went into MB to build my GLE350d. Like said above, you can only get the Comfort Seat Package with the leather interior. Option 401

Thanks guys
