I've tried searching on this and haven't had much luck - I understand 2016 is the first year and may be prone to more issues - I'm curious if there were any significant changes - (such as new options added, etc). Any insight would be appreciated.

In case you're wondering, I'm keeping the 2013.

Thanks.

No difference between the 16 and 17 that I am aware of.
I understand that there will be atleast colour changes for the 18.

Luv our 17 but I never drove a gen1 so I can't compare.

Starting with 2017 model year Volt, Driver Confidence Packages A and B were both available, not sure if both A and B were available on the 2016. This includes not only collision detection but collision avoidance/automatic braking. Starting in the May 2016 time frame 2017 Volts started to be available with optional Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) (an option on the Premier Volt only), ACC requires A and B. ACC is a big deal for some, it is the reason I waited for and purchased a 2017 Volt instead of a 2016.

That comes standard with me in all cars :)


Jan 24, 2016 picked up my Gen 2... no problems whatsoever. Flawless.

There's a new driving data screen on the '17 model. Tells you how the terrain, driving style, climate, etc affected your range. Besides that, I don't know.

1, 2, and ACC in my red 2017, I also love my Gen 2 and ACC. Part of me misses my 2014 Brownstone, with jet black interior. It was a bit more cozy and felt like a little personal space ship (with all the lights and buttons). But, I do not miss so often turning something on or off by accident with those capacitive touch buttons. The Gen 2 extra range is really helpful too.
