Adaptive Cruise Control
The general quietness
The cameras and the overview mode where you can see as from 15’ up.
Headlights auto mode and dimmer
Big fun to drive
The hatch back and cavernous capacity and automatic tonneau rising when you open the hatch
Never having to go to a gas station again!
The outside look and design
Safety!! Actually safety was my main justification for selling my wonderful 2007 Prius and buying the Leaf.
As an 80 year old, I know that I’m not as responsive a driver as I used to be, and besides I get distracted with anything from fiddling with my iPhone to the radio or smoking a duby on my way home. Blind spot warning, lane wandering alerts and emergency braking are valuable to me.
Whoever designed the interior should be fired or sent back to design school!
My previous Hondas and Prius had all these wonderful little cubbies where I could keep things organized. The Leaf has 1 huge glove box that will end up hard to find what in there, one dinky uncovered cubby under the center console and 1 small cubby under the center arm rest.
More important is that the center arm rest is too high and too far back! Then in between the arm rest and the shift are the water bottle holders where your arm should be resting. I’m amazed that no one else has mentioned this.
I think I can fix it by removing the armrest top, which is pretty thick and replace it with a thinner, padded top which extends forward almost to the shifter (over the water bottle wells), then affix a water bottle holder by the passenger’s left knee. But I shouldn’t have to do such a thing!
