Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Nissan LEAF

Kimberly Smith
Automotive Editor - February 9, 2020
  • 2020 LEAF is here; 2019s are still available
  • Rebates: $1,000 off select trims + eligible for tax credits
  • Lease: From $229 per month for 36 months
  • Finance: From 0% APR for 60 months + $1,000 bonus

Choose your range:

The 2020 Leaf is arriving as a carryover of the 2019, which is still available in stock. Both model years include the 40kWh lineup, which can travel up to 150 miles per charge, as well as the 62kWh PLUS lineup, which costs $6,000+ more but can travel up to 225 miles per charge.

Current offers are regional (our examples are based on a Los Angeles location) and available through March 2, 2020.

Extra credits:

Nissan is offering a $1,000 rebate on 2020 models, or $1,000 bonus cash on 2019 SV Plus and SL Plus trims.

In addition, all versions of the LEAF are eligible for a Federal tax credit worth up to $7,500. In California, buyers can enjoy a Clean Vehicle Rebate (CVRP) worth $2,000 subject to income-based restrictions.

Great lease specials:

Lease a 40kWh 2019 LEAF S from $234 per month for 36 months (10,000 miles per year) with $2,929 due at signing. This equates to an effective cost of $315/month, which is an outstanding value.

If you prefer a 2020 40kWh S, the payments are $229 per month for 36 months with $3,979 down (10,000 miles per year). This, too, is a fantastic value.

Zero-interest financing:

The 2019 LEAF features wonderfully low 0% APR financing for 60 months, with zero down and no payments for 90 days. Plus, there’s a $1,000 bonus for financing at this great rate, which can be combined with the bonus cash for a total of up to $2,000 off.

2020 models can also be financed at 0% APR with zero down and no payments for 90 days, but the loan term is only 36 months, so your payments will be higher. 2020 models are eligible for the special APR bonus of $1,000, as well, but it cannot be combined with the rebate mentioned above.

2020 Nissan LEAF: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - January 13, 2020

Model Preview

The Nissan LEAF has been through a fair number of changes lately, including its redesign in 2018 and the introduction of the longer-range PLUS models in 2019. When the 2020 Nissan LEAF hits showrooms, it’ll bring in another handful of changes, including more standard safety equipment, new standard interior tech, and more.

When the second-generation LEAF arrived in 2018, its goal was to abandon the funky styling of before and bring in a more traditional look with the legendary Nissan twist. The new LEAF may not be quite as traditional looking as the Chevy Bolt EV, but it is a far cry from the odd-proportioned first-generation model. We expect this design to carry on unchanged to the 2020 Nissan LEAF.

Inside, Nissan’s aim at traditional design took hold when the second-gen LEAF rolled out. The cabin boasts all the features expected in just about any Nissan model, including a flat-bottom steering wheel, a clean dashboard design, and simple HVAC controls. The only area that gives up its identity as an advanced electric vehicle is its nontraditional gear shifter and the EV-focused gauges.

Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid

The 2020 LEAF’s interior design will carry over, but it’ll bring in some updated tech and features along the way. First, Nissan will scrap the current standard 5-inch infotainment screen and optional 7-inch touchscreen, and it’ll replace them with a standard 8-inch touchscreen. With this new touchscreen infotainment system will also come standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, which are currently standard only on SV and higher trims.

Underhood, the 2020 Nissan LEAF will remain unchanged. Standard models will continue with an electric motor that produces 147 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque and Is fed by a 40-kilowatt-hour battery. LEAF PLUS models will bump up to a 62-kWh battery pack and a motor that pumps out 214 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. With the base 40-kWh battery, the LEAF can travel up to 149 miles on a charge, and the 62-kWh pack bumps this to 226 miles.

Safety will also get an upgrade in the 2020 LEAF. The current model already boasts standard automatic emergency braking, but the 2020 model will enhance this with standard Nissan Safety Shield 360. This suite of safety equipment will add standard pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beam headlights. Also, Nissan will add its 360-degree camera to the optional SV Technology Package.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2020 Nissan LEAF is heading to showrooms now.

It’s pricing ranges from $32,525 to $44,825 (destination fees included).

This EV hatchback will compete with the Chevy Bolt EV, Tesla Model 3, and Hyundai Kona Electric.
