The mid-range Essence doesn’t look too different from the Preferred from the outside, but from behind the wheel, the larger touchscreen interface and the leather seats are certainly noticeable. Along with dual-zone climate control, it also gets an in-vehicle air ionizer with an air quality indicator. The heated front seats are a welcome addition for chilly mornings, while the hands-free power liftgate makes life more convenient. If you want a power panoramic sunroof, you’ll have to go for the Essence at least, since this feature isn’t offered on the Preferred.
