I would love the Remote start that would be great , start it via your phone perhaps , and allowing you to change all your settings so it's nice and cosy before you go out.

I would love to see Heads Up Displays become more common on cars, having common readouts on the screen, and also less analog dials and more digital.  I have torque on my phone and its great having all the stats of the sensors etc, think that would be nice to have built into a system for the car.

 

Another good feature, for estate users that have kids.  An extendable cover when you open the tailgate, to offer a good surface to keep you dry when putting buggies and shopping and such like.

Definitely heated steering wheel!
Some thing I'd like to see on more cars but do actually exist are the driver assistance pack: auto city stop especially.
I would also like to see every option on every trim level, not just on higher models. The run-lock idea seems good in theory, but I'm sure it won't catch on as it'd waste fuel. However, I agree that e.g a button for a heated windscreen that comes on without the engine would be viable.

Had a Corsa (sorry to use the c word) as a hire car it had a heated steering wheel and seats, was lovely on a freezing cold morning, can't remember which model it was on.

Not sure, had the ford link saved as I was thinking of getting some, mind they aren't cheap. Got some stainless "S" sills from Lockwoods in Leeds, they are really good, give them a call they might make you some, link below.

I like the thought of remote start too! America gets it on alot of vehicles but I don't think it's legal to have a car engine running unattended here.

 

As for setting the climate via you phone, the Nissan Leaf I had for 24hrs could do this, as can the forthcoming Ford Focus Electric...
