Using $_SESSION vs $this->session

It would seem that using $_SESSION may be more efficient as it is already available to the controller, models and views.
However, if using the CI session class, the session library would need to be loaded in the constructor of every class referencing the session variables.

Is this accurate?

The session library can be autoloaded in the config so that it's always available.
