In performance, the four trim levels are almost identical, but the same cannot be said about safety features. The Essential trim level has fewer safety features than the other trim levels, with more safty features being added on for every trim level as the prices increase. For example, the Essential is the only trim level without Blind-Spot Collison Warning (BCW) with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW). The Essential also lacks Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), which is optional on the Preferred and standard on the Luxury. The Ultimate gets a more advanced version, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with Pedestrian Detection. The Pedestrian Detection features allows the vehicle to even sense pedestrians crossing the street in front of it, rather than only sensing vehicles. It takes a more refined sensor but adds another layer of safety.
