2020 Nissan LEAF

What's New For the 2020 Nissan LEAF?

The new LEAF Plus model debuted in 2019, and this version carries over to the new model year. Both the regular LEAF and LEAF Plus are still available in a total of three trims, so the buyer will have six different options. The LEAF Plus is expected to gain a bit of driving range for 2020. Otherwise, the models continue into 2020 without any significant changes, and this includes the sticker price.

What Are the LEAF Trims & Features?

The 2020 Nissan LEAF is a four-door hatchback-style vehicle available in three trims. These are the S, SV, and SL. The regular LEAF S comes with 16-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, LED taillights, and a rear spoiler. Inside, one finds keyless entry and ignition, a tilt steering wheel, height-adjustable front seats, air conditioning, and 60/40-split rear seats. High-tech features include a 5-inch screen display, a USB port, Bluetooth, and a very nice four-speaker sound system with a CD player and satellite radio. The uplevel SV trim gets 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 7-inch screen display. Navigation is also standard.

The SL trim comes with a power-adjustable driver's seat, the Technology package that includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror, LED headlights and running lights, and a power-adjustable driver's seat with two-way power lumbar. This package is also available as an option on the SV trim. The All-Weather package, available as an option on the lower trims, comes standard on the SL and includes heated exterior mirrors, heated front seats and steering wheel, and rear heater vents. The SL also comes with leather upholstery and a Bose stereo system. These trim specs are the same for the LEAF Plus model.

Raw Power and Stellar Performance

The regular LEAF trims are powered by a 40-kWh battery that promises a driving range of around 150 miles. The total output is 147 horsepower. The LEAF Plus gets a more powerful engine that gets its juice from a 60-kWh battery pack. The 2019 LEAF Plus gets around 226 miles of driving between charges, but the new 2020 model will get a minimal boost in the driving range. The regular LEAF and LEAF Plus S trims can be purchased with an optional Charge package that includes a DC fast-charging port and a portable charge cable that is compatible with both 120- and 240-volt outlets. This charge package is included on the SV and SL trims.

The new electric motor that debuted in 2019 is a real improvement over the weaker motor of previous years' LEAF models. Acceleration is much better, and the car responds more quickly to the pedal, the result being a better freeway driving experience and the absence of shifting means a more comfortable driving experience.

The 2020 Nissan LEAF Has a Long List of Safety Features

All six versions of the 2020 LEAF come with a rearview camera, dual front airbags, rear curtain bags, stability control, child seat anchors, and driver alert icons on the screen display. The aforementioned Technology package, available on the SV and standard on the SL, includes blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The package also includes the ProPilot Assist suite of driver aids. These are automatic high-beam control, stop-and-go capability, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and pedestrian detection.
