Nissan Leaf Review for 2015 Model Year

The Nissan Leaf is the bestselling all-electric car in the world. Boasting a fun driving feel, an impressive amount of power and, of course, excellent fuel economy, the Nissan Leaf has taken the world by storm. The 2015 model is continuing the Leaf's dominance by adding new features such as a new regenerative braking mode that is more aggressive, 17-inch wheels and voice-to-text messaging and navigation commands.

The 2015 Nissan Leaf offers Decatur drivers three trim options: S, SV and SL. The base S model includes 16-inch wheels, keyless ignition/entry, heated front and rear seats, cloth upholstery, a heated steering wheel, a 4.3-inch color touchscreen, automatic climate control and a rearview camera. Upgrade to the SV trim and you'll get 17-inch alloy wheels, a 7-inch touchscreen with navigation, cruise control, partially recycled cloth upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a six-speaker sound system.

Our 2015 Nissan Leaf review suggests going with the top tier SL trim, which offers features such as LED headlights, a solar panel mounted on the rear spoiler, foglights and a cargo cover. The SV and SL trims also come with faster charging ports that cut the Leaf's charging time in half.

Going further under the hood, electric car shoppers will find the 2015 Nissan Leaf in Decatur uses an 80-kW electric motor and a 24kW lithium-ion battery pack. This impressive combination allows a fully charged Leaf to go up to 84 miles on a single charge. Each trim offers three transmission settings: Normal, Eco-Mode and B-Mode.

Standard safety features include stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, side curtain airbags and front side airbags. These features as well as the optional 360-degree-view parking camera system and standard rearview camera earned the Leaf a "Good" rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which is their highest rating.
