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 did you get an extended test drive of one? Seriously considering one (a '17, too), to replace the Prius...
