2020 Nissan LEAF: What’s New?

By Justin Cupler | January 16th, 2020

The second-generation Nissan LEAF stormed the Garber Nissan Hyundai showroom in the 2018 model year with a more traditional design, updated powertrain, and more. The following year, it brought in a PLUS model with a more power-dense battery that helped it deliver a longer range and tons more power.

What’s the 2020 Nissan LEAF has in store for EV shoppers in the Saginaw area? Here’s what you can expect.

Safety Comes Standard on the 2020 Nissan Leaf

The current Nissan LEAF already boasts standard automatic emergency braking, but the 2020 LEAF will gain standard Nissan Safety Shield® 360. This suite of safety equipment will add standard pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beam headlights.

Other newly standardized safety features on the 2020 LEAF will include intelligent forward-collision warning, intelligent lane intervention, blind-spot intervention, front knee airbags, and rear side-impact airbags.

The final safety update is moving the optional 360-degree Intelligent Around View Monitor and Intelligent Driver Alertness to the SV Technology Package. In the 2019 LEAF, you must go with the SL trim to get the Intelligent Around View Monitor.

Connect Your Smartphone to Any 2020 Nissan LEAF

The current LEAF boasts available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, but it is standard only on SV and higher trims. The 2020 Nissan LEAF will now come standard with these popular smartphone integrations so you can connect your devices and stream audio, run navigation, or take calls right through the infotainment system.

Speaking of the infotainment system, that gets an upgrade too. Gone are the standard 5-inch display screen and the optional 7-inch touchscreen and in comes a standard 8-inch touchscreen across the entire lineup. Previously, this was standard only in PLUS models.  

New Look and Sound

The 2020 Nissan LEAF will also arrive with a new look and sound with its all-new Sunset Drift ChromaFlair® color option and the updated tone and volume of the pedestrian warning sound the LEAF emits when driving under 18.6 mph.
