2020 Nissan Leaf Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.8

The 2020 Nissan Leaf has a roomy, upscale interior with intuitive technology and ample cargo space. However, some controls look outdated, and the second row of seats doesn't fold down flat.

  • "The Leaf's cockpit is a nice blend of comfort and high tech. It's not so futuristic as to be distracting, but its mushroom cap-like shifter and upright touchscreen in the center of the dash lets you know something different is going on." -- Autotrader
  • "Although the cabins of the Leaf S and SVs are a sea of black plastic, the well-assembled and uniform textures help it avoid looking cheap. The SL model offers an optional light-gray leather interior with a matching dash pad that breaks up the monotony." -- Car and Driver
  • "Inside the 2020 Nissan Leaf electric you’ll find a handsome, modern cabin with supportive seats, logically arranged controls and — wonder of wonders — a proper blend of touch-screen controls alongside hard buttons and physical knobs." -- Kelley Blue Book

Seating

The five-seat Nissan Leaf has comfortable front seats, and head- and legroom in both rows is mostly sufficient. However, the rear middle seat doesn’t have much legroom because of the placement of the battery. Outward visibility is generally good.

Cloth upholstery and manually adjustable front seats are standard. Optional features include leather upholstery, heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a heated steering wheel, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

For securing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the Leaf’s rear outboard seats. There’s also a single tether anchor for the rear middle seat. The lower anchors are set deep in the seats, and there’s not a lot of room to maneuver your hands.

  • "Nissan provides seating for five, but four is a more realistic (and comfortable) figure. Rear-seat legroom is on the smaller side, and foot space is somewhat impeded by the battery pack’s access panel." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The Leaf's seats are deeply cushioned and La-Z-Boy comfortable; the spacious rear seat offers plenty of room for adult riders, too." -- Car and Driver
  • "We found plenty of front and rear legroom, and headroom is generous as well. The Leaf's cabin isn't terribly wide, but it feels appropriate for its size. … It's easy to see out thanks to the generously sized windows. Cornering sight lines are aided by peekaboo windows ahead of the front windows, but the rear roof pillars produce a bigger blind spot. The bottom edge of the rear glass is nice and low." -- Edmunds (2019)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2020 Leaf include proximity keyless entry, automatic climate control, and an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, three USB ports, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and a four-speaker stereo.

The infotainment screen has a simple menu structure and fast processing times. Some of the physical controls have a plain, outdated look, but they're clearly labeled and easy to reach.

Standard driver assistance features include forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, automatic high-beam headlights, a rearview camera, and a rear door alert.

Optional features include navigation, a six-speaker stereo, a seven-speaker Bose premium stereo, HD Radio, adaptive cruise control, driver attention monitoring, a surround-view parking camera system, ProPilot Assist, a universal garage door opener, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

  • "Nissan's latest Nissan Connect software interface, while not particularly pleasing to the eye, is intuitive and quick to respond to inputs." -- Car and Driver
  • "A new 8-inch touch screen is now standard across the model range. It looks great and features easy-to-use icons to navigate audio, Bluetooth and navigation settings as well as vehicle information." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The infotainment system is straightforward, and even though the climate controls look dated, their use is self-evident." -- Edmunds (2019)

Cargo

The Nissan Leaf has 23.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats and 30 cubic feet with the second row folded down. Those values are excellent for the hybrid and electric car class. However, the back seats don’t fold flat.

  • "Cargo space is generous for this class, but the Leaf’s 2nd-row seatback doesn’t fold flush with the cargo floor, making it more difficult to slide in items like a bike or large box." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Despite the fact that the Leaf's back seat doesn't fold to create a flat load floor, we found the cargo capacity to be among the best in its class. We fit seven carry-on suitcases behind the back seat and a whopping 19 with the back seat folded." -- Car and Driver
  • "The Leaf's standard cargo space is impressive when the rear seats are in the normal position due to a very low floor. Fold them flat, however, and the picture worsens because the overly simplistic folding mechanism merely piles the seatbacks atop the bottom cushions to create a 10-inch tall barrier." -- Edmunds (2019)
