From what I've seen of US model specs, they seem to have dropped the CD player in all 2018 models. I could be mistaken.

Good catch. I forgot to look for that on the fully loaded '18 SL brought to me for test drive.

From http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... -press-kit Specs tab, SV stereo doesn't mention CD player ("AM/FM with MP3/WMA playback capability, 6 speakers, 7.0-inch color LCD display") and the SL stereo is even more nondescript ("Bose Premium Audio system with 7 speakers"). Only the S stereo mentions CD.

And, from the pics I've seen of the '18 S center stack, it's the carryover stereo from the '13 to '17 S and common in many other non-nav Nissans.

The SL may still have it. Does the 2017 MY Bose system still have the CD player? Anyone...? Given that they just limited the Premium Package to the SL and made it standard, it wouldn't make sense to delete the player, unless Bose wanted to do so, had already done so in 2016 or 2017, or offered Nissan a deal if they could do it in the 2018.

I can see it now: "The Latest Compact Disk Technology - available only in the SL!"

I don't think the Bose head unit on the '17 Leaf is the same as any '18 Leaf w/Bose.

For '17, http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... -press-kit under Specs says for SV and SL "AM/FM/CD with MP3/WMA CD playback capability, 6 speakers, 7.0-inch color LCD display".

The head unit on the '18 Leaf SL looks nothing like any pre-'18 Leaf OEM head unit I've seen.

FWIW, I don't think Tesla has included nor even made it option to have a CD player in any of their vehicles after the original Roadster. There are numerous complaint threads on this over at "TMC" starting with the Model S.

My ‘17 has it hidden behind the flip up faceplate. The ‘18 has one two but it’s just a slot at the top of the faceplate and not hidden underneath.

I wonder why they dropped any mention of it from the specs. Too archaic for their PR people, I guess?

I can confirm that the 2018 SV has no CD player. There is a styling line above the faceplate that looks a little like a CD slot, but it isn't one. There was no SL for me to look at.
