Hypothetically, if it were possible, what would you suggest for purchase?

A new, <10 miles, 2017 Volt Premier with Adaptive Cruise Control for $34k + tax, tag etc. but before fed and state incentives.


A 2014 ELR with Nav and Adaptive Cruise Control with 8k miles, that's an MSO so it qualifies for the Fed and State tax credits and rebates for $33k + tax, tags etc., but before fed and state incentives.

I never heard of an ELR until I started reading this forum. After months of reading about the Volt, I started reading about the ELR. I don't think I've ever seen one in person, I'm not a Cadillac fan. But after reading all the raves about it, I think I want one over a Volt.

I've read that some people have found old left over MSO 2014's so I'm curious as to what people think.

Thanks in advance.

The ELR is interesting as it has the first generation Voltec engine/tech but the instrument cluster was clearly the inspiration for the second generation Volt.

Assuming all things equal, I'd go with the '17 Volt. For my needs, that fifth seat (however loosely worded that might be) is a requirement. In fact, I have made a trip with my family of five in the Volt and we fit reasonably well. The ELR being a four-seater, along with the lower AER and worse fuel economy is not worth it to me.
