2017 Nissan Leaf Review

Gas stations: who needs them? Embrace the freedom of the road and power your drive with all energy no exhaust. The Nissan LEAF is America’s best-selling fully electric vehicle and it’s no wonder why. With an available range of 107 miles sporty acceleration and standard perks like heated fronts seats the future looks fun. Choose from 3 models the S SV and top-of-the-line SL. You’ll never have to stop at a gas station again. Recharge right at home or on the go. And no gas means zero emissions. Not one puff. Think electric cars can only creep? Think again. LEAF’s electric engine can do things a V8 can’t like spring to life with instant torque. There’s no lag… and very little drag thanks to its incredibly aerodynamic body. Plus LEAF is a roomy hatch with seating for 5. Interior treats like heated front seats and hands-free text messaging make your drive comfortable and convenient. Available in a rainbow of color and interior trim combinations your LEAF can be customized to your liking. The Nissan LEAF… electrify your life.
LEAF’s signature power-up chime means the fun is about to begin. Ultra-modern gauges and an easy-to-read Display Drive Computer put the right information front and center. Take a seat on available black leather and get comfy. Available 60/40 folding rear seats give you flexible cargo space. The available Nissan Navigation System helps you find places to charge up and available SiriusXM and BOSE premium audio will keep the good times rolling.
You know safety is first and foremost. That’s why LEAF looks out for you. Available rearview camera watches your back and the available automatic headlights maximize your visibility. The Vehicle Dynamic Control and Traction Control System reduces engine power and increases brake pressure if it senses over- or understeering. Nissan’s Advanced Air Bag System includes supplemental front air bags that move with seating adjustments. Plus LEAF’s LATCH System and child-safety locks keep even the smallest passengers safely inside.
LEAF’s standard battery has a range of 84 miles so you won’t have trouble with your day’s to-do list. Step up to the larger battery and a 107-mile range. Leap into action. LEAF bolts off the line with 100% torque better than a V8. And its low center of gravity makes it easy to hug the curves. LEAF has fewer moving parts than any car you’ve owned which translates to less maintenance and fewer pricy tune-ups. Manage your drive with the available NissanConnect EV and Zero Emissions menus.
