Hi folks,

I ordered a CLA 220 CDI and I still have a couple of weeks to change the options.

Regarding the line detection and blind spot assist, for those who have it, is it worth it?

Same question for Distronic Plus, is it worth it? especially since by default we already have the collision prevention assist (I know they don't offer the same capabilities, but in terms of safety, collision prevention assist may be enough?)

I'm hesitating to take none of them, some of them (e.g. line detection only) or all the them, but them the price tag is slightly different.

Thanks in advance.

I've tried them all in the new C class. The only one I might consider getting if I could go back was the blind spot assist. The CLA is somewhat hard to see out of. However I am fine without it. It all depends on your driving style and position how hard it is too look. I will say, it is quite good, but not perfect. So I would not assume it is always right when there isn't someone there.

I would also consider whether or not your insurance gives you enough of a discount for any of it to make it worthwhile.
