Any real difference between the 2019 and 2020 SL Plus?

Fri Apr 10, 2020 6:07 pm

My 2016 SV is down to an 80 mile range. While that sounds like a lot, it's not enough to get me to the kids' school and back with the heater on. I've found a couple of 2020s around me and a 2019 that's advertised for about $3k less. I didn't really find much difference between the 2 years on the stickers, but reality is often different. Figured I'd see if anyone had some input.

The SV+ got Around View as an option. I think the SL+ just gets rear USB ports...$3000 USB ports, in your case.

There are a few more safety features too I believe.

Was the rear door open traffic warning added in 2020 or 2019?

I think Nissan said mid 2019. I think the 2020s added a couple of airbags and rear sensors for the cross traffic alert with emergency brakingas well. Anyone know any changes to ProPilot?

Someone here said that their 2019 (IIRC) Pro Pilot was better than the 2018 had been. No official changes, but possible software improvement. I also don't know if this was for all 2019 leafs with PP, or later builds only.

Thanks everyone. Looks like the answer is no, not really. Found one in Fairfax, VA for $31K. Trying to talk a closer dealer down into that price range. I figure it wouldn't cost me all that much to have it shipped to me.

A lease doesn't work for me. My 2016 has 55K on it, and it sat in the driveway for 4 months this fall while I was recovering from a motorcycle v. drunk SUV engagement. A paltry 12k a year is laughable mileage. For me, it's what's the difference, and is it worth $3k? In any case, I'm getting a blue 2019 SL Plus delivered in the morning.
