The following preview/review on the new 2017 Nissan Leaf features, specs, price, and release date for the S, SL, and SV models is all there is to know.
2017 Nissan Leaf Features and Specs – S, SL, and SV Models
The 2017 Nissan Leaf features and specs will continue on the same trend of increasing the styling options, while maintaining optimum efficiency. The four door hatchback with enough seating for five is believed to be slightly bigger, offering more leg room for those in the back seat.
Some of the top features including an intuitive dash display, great illumination, backup camera, faster charging option, and no exhaust emissions. One of the biggest drawbacks is the inability to charge the Leaf in public locations, even though there are more and more places that are integrating electric car charging technology. Over the years we’re expecting this to only increase, but at the present time there are limited locations to plug in for more juice.
The 107-hp engine seen in the previous models is expected to get a slight bump in horsepower to maybe 110. The standard 1 speed automatic transmission should give consumers more than 130 MPGe/city and more than 104 MPGe/highway.
