S+ benefits over SV/SL+

Fri Jul 03, 2020 4:06 pm

1. Range (smaller lighter wheels)
2. Range (Lower ride height)
2B. Range (lighter car)
3. No Piano black plastic..grey stays cleaner
4. Better AC...it’s too cold, so just keep it off.
5. Faster AC.
6. Manual seats...so much faster to adjust
7. No leather (for the vegan crowd)
8. Fewer menus to distract the driver (namely me)
9. Same super sexy exterior

Well...my SL Plus AC has been great in the Summer heat in Louisiana.

Not sure of your comment the S is so cold you leave it off :) not down here.

The steering wheel is leather if it is heated. Is it not heated?

The left over Leaf didn’t have the cold weather package, so no leather on the steering wheel, and no leather on the center console cubbie..it black vinyl with blue stitching. Looks very close to the leather, but you feel the difference when touching it.

Similar to what Olympia Dave has been reporting the range on the S+ feels more like 10-15% thank 5-6% like epa suggests.

From a quick look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyvBa25wWaE, don't you just push the left knob on the stereo?

I'd found the above video at the bottom of https://www.nissanusa.com/vehicles/elec ... llery.html.
