instant cabin heat?

I have noticed on my 00'S that the radiator doesn't need to warm up before I get heat. It is almost instant from a cold engine. Any of you out there experience the same thing? It is a great feature.

I never experienced this!

Is there an electric heater in the S I don't know about?

I would think the thermostat will not cycle fluid to the radiator until the engine heats up first. The engine heats up faster...and you do too!

Then again, bluelagoon is in California. In a cold weather state, the heat-up is not soooo fast!
