    5 reasons to buy the 2023 Nissan Leaf

    1. Standard driver-assistance features

    Every 2023 Nissan Leaf is equipped with a long list of driver-assistance features that you'd expect to pay extra for. This includes automatic emergency braking, rear sensors with automatic braking, a lane-departure warning system with lane-keep assist, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The 2023 Leaf also comes with innovative blind-spot intervention, which will steer the car back into its lane if the driver attempts to change lines while the vehicle's blind spot is occupied or obstructed.

    2. Impressive electric range

    As a small electric hatchback, the 2023 Leaf delivers plenty of range to power your driving adventures. Even on its base S model with a standard 40-kWh battery pack, the Leaf offers an EPA-estimated 149 miles range on a full charge.

    If you need to travel farther between stops to charge, the 2023 Leaf SV Plus with its upgraded 62-kWh battery delivers an EPA-estimated 212 miles of range on a full battery.

    3. Available engine upgrade

    The 2023 Nissan Leaf comes standard with a 40-kWh battery pack and electric motor that puts out 147 hp. However, for those who want a little more power and excitement behind the wheel, the Leaf SV Plus trim includes a mightier 62-kWh battery pack that's paired with its electric motor to crank out 214 hp. Regardless of which Leaf motor/battery combination is right for you, it's nice to have options.

    4. Comfortable cabin

    Inside the cabin of the 2023 Leaf, you'll find plenty of creature comforts and room for up to five passengers to spread out. Thanks to its electric motor and drive components, there is virtually no mechanical noise inside the Leaf's cabin—and any road noise is minimized by this electric vehicle's insulated cabin. Drivers and passengers alike will also enjoy the 2023 Leaf's supportive seats, which are cozy even on longer car rides.

    5. Ample storage space

    Despite its spacious cabin, the 2023 Leaf doesn't skimp on storage space. Behind its rear row, you'll enjoy a dedicated 23.6 cu-ft of cargo space in the hatch. With rear seats folded down, you can extend cargo storage up to 30 cu-ft when needed. This is plenty of room to accommodate your daily grocery runs, weekender bags, and everyday gear. Meanwhile, a center console, glove compartment, and cubbies built into each door offer additional storage for small items.
