Looks like all the high-tech (ACC/FAB/LK etc.) is in the Premier trim.

My wife and I did one of the extended test drives today of a 2016 Volt Premier... Four hours later, I think we have found the replacement for our Leaf and will likely order a 2017 for lease... Both of us liked it much more than we expected to...

How well does the electric cabin heater perform in the Volt? I hate the idea of forced engine starts (the Prius PHEV is really bad in this way), but if the start temp can be set to 15F, that isn't quite so bad...

All I know is that it was a cool 48 degrees (about as cold as it typically gets here) and windy for our test drive, but the cabin stayed a nice warm 70 and the engine never started...
