Absolutely worth every penny! I really didn’t think I would use most of the features, but now I couldn’t live without them. The Forward Collision Avoidance has already saved me once when a driver unexpectedly pulled out in from of me! That alone was worth the upgrade, but I also learned to love the smart cruise combined with the active lane assist. On the highway the car basically drives by itself! After customizing the settings it’s unobtrusive and helps a lot more than I ever expected. The blind spot and cross traffic warnings are a must as well, so I can’t think of any feature I’d be willing to give up. Maybe I got a little spoiled, but it’s nice to finally enjoy the finer things in life.
