I think cross traffic alert is a '14 and up option when 360 cameras were added by Merc, but I'm far from expert on their newer model years. Are we comparing the newer more expensive LS or the...

The double wide, high(ish) res screen in the GS (and new S Class) is absolutely fantastic. I hope it catches on in other reasonably priced cars.

That wood is so good that I'd have to skip the F-Sport with its metal trim.
I prefer the LS F-Sport on most things, but the wood is a show stopper.
