If Uber‘s current ride options for you just doesn’t quite cut it, you’ll be glad to know that the ridesharing giant is now offering a new Uber “Comfort” tier for those willing to pay a little more for a better experience.

Sitting snugly between its current UberX and Uber Black services, Uber Comfort seeks to provide those willing to pay a small amount extra for an elevated ride experience with amenities like extra legroom, the ability to set temperatures before pickup, and a guarantee for a newer car. The ridesharing company has said that the upgrades will come with just a 20-40 percent increase in price over the more economical UberX option, and will also come with the recently-announced “quiet mode” — where drivers will not engage in conversation with you — that was previously exclusive to Uber Black.

To guarantee a newer car for you, Uber has limited eligibility for the service to those drivers with a car less than five years old, and to pre-approved models as well: currently on the list is the Toyota Camry, Dodge Durango, Audi SQ7, Chevy Tahoe, and Honda Odyssey. The quality of service from drivers also come into play, with Uber setting a minimum of a 4.85-star average for drivers to enlist for the feature.

Uber Comfort is now available in 43 cities and some smaller states across the US, as well as Ottawa.
