I can't find it now but I thought I read somewhere that US/Canada versions get heated seats/seat backs while vehicles destined to my neck of the woods, Colombia get ventilated seat backs. I have the latter with three settings and it's really great in a city where the temperature year round is 90F and above.

I've only used each of those features briefly in my Reserve. I couldn't tell you if the backs are heated/ventilated as well as the seat bottoms. I don't believe that they are, but I could be wrong. I can't find anything in the descriptions other than "heated/ventilated seats." 3rd party reviews seem to just copy/paste the unspecific Mazda specs.

Backs are also heated in the US. My wife uses the heated seats all the time and loves them. I can't use them for more than about 5 minutes, before it gets too hot.

Haven’t tried the heat, but the backs are definitely ventilated in addition to the seat bottoms in my Reserve.
