Hatchbacks are underrated on performance and luxury, but it’s hard to dismiss the performance and style of the new Nissan LEAF near Denver. Wherever it appears, it reminds people that the 5-door hatchback is still fashionable and capable of serving families and singles alike. At our dealership serving Denver Lakewood Aurora Littleton, we believe in helping customers discover models like this through brief reviews. Why are people buying the Nissan LEAF this year? Just take a look.
As an all-electric model, the LEAF is worthy of lots of attention thanks to its powertrain and performance features. If you’ve never driven an electric vehicle, you might not be familiar with features like the LEAF’s e-Pedal. Your model is capable of driving with just that one pedal. To accelerate, you press the pedal. To decelerate, you reduce tension on the pedal and let your regenerative braking take over. Don’t worry, though. There’s still a brake pedal there until you get the hang of this magical pedal. The new Nissan LEAF near Denver gets 212 mile range with a full charge. Your 60 kWh battery gives you this performance. Even better, you’ve got a trio of ways to charge the LEAF. If you’d like to go with the 40 kWh battery, it has a nice 149 mile range. Just how powerful is a Nissan LEAF? Well, you have two choices of power for your model. If you opt for the 40 kWh battery, you get 147 horsepower performance and 123 MPGe. The stronger 60 kWh battery delivers 214 horsepower and 121 MPHe. Unlike noisy, messy gas powertrains, the Nissan LEAF’s electric motor and battery combination delivers a quiet performance and instant torque to your wheels. There’s no middle man to create unpleasant noise or a wait time before your power hits your wheels. With an all-electric vehicle, you’ll have power right when you decide you need it. Charging the Nissan LEAF is as easy as plugging it in. If you’ve had a smartphone for awhile, you already know the drill here. The payoff for charging your LEAF is much more exciting, though.
The wide NissanConnect 8″ touchscreen of your Nissan LEAF is just one perk you’ll find on the inside of the model. It’s positioned so that the driver can easily reach out and find their destination, make a phone call, or put on their favorite song. There’s a whole world inside the LEAF’s infotainment system. The LEAF isn’t just innovative with its all-electric power. The model also delivers excellent driver-assist features to keep you and your family safe. PROPilot Assist delivers features like Lane Centering and Adaptive Cruise Control. You’ll also get the powerful protection of Nissan LEAF Safety Shield 360. This adds Rear Automatic Braking, Lane Departure Warning, and High Beam Assist to your safety platform. Hatchbacks are old pros at managing any type of cargo you need to take along. In fact, the original hatchbacks were made mostly for people who needed places to conveniently transport their gear from place to place. The LEAF manages both passenger and cargo capacity beautifully in its newest edition. Even with all your seats up in the LEAF, you still have 23.6 cubic feet of cargo capacity.
