In playing around w the options the price difference between the loaded SV and SL is minimal.


According to this, heated rear seats are no longer an option, even in a fully loaded Leaf SL. Is this true? If so, that would be disappointing. I often have my kids in the back seat, and they will both be out of car seats in another two years. It would be ironic if I had a Leaf with heated rear seats that I could never use (due to car seats), and then replaced it with one without heated rear seats just as I could make use of them.

"FR Heated Seats" in the Cold Weather Package Option stands for "Front and Rear Heated Seats" Heated seats are options on the S & SV and standard on the SL.

For the Gen1, front and rear heated seats were an option through 2013 on SV. Starting in 2014, only the SL came with front and rear heated seats. All other trims I believe only had the front heated seats.

I'm pretty sure when I read the specs the 2018 SL would also be the only trim that allowed rear heated seats which would be annoying as I found it useful to have.

Go back to the specs at the start of this thread and take another look. "FR" stands for "Front and Rear".

Yes, you said that. But where did that list come from? I am looking at the configurator on Nissan's website, and it explicitly states front only.

The online configurator appears be in error.

The list I published came directly from Nissan and is used with their permission.

I hope this is true. I could really use those seat heaters!

Of course, I'm not in the market for a 2018 anyway. I need that longer range, or there's no point in upgrading my 2012. So I really care about the 2019.
