The cruise control in my previous '14 Leaf held steady speed so well on hills and in heavy traffic that was constantly messing with small speed adjustments as ICE vehicles bogged down slightly on hills. This is basically as set it & forget it feature now that works well for my needs. I would list adaptive cruise control (and ProPilot) among several key reasons why I chose the Leaf over a Chevy Bolt.
I Totally agree. I went from a 2018 Leaf with Propilot to a 2019 Leaf Plus in order to gain range and eliminate range anxiety for a routine 120 mile trip I make between 2 homes. I choose to go with a Leaf Plus rather than a Bolt only because of my positive experience with ProPilot’s adaptive cruise performance.

I found that ProPilot’s Steering assistance and adaptive cruise significantly reduces fatigue on long trips.

The $7,500 tax credit for the Leaf made the decision more palatable.

Agreed. Without the 7500 and heavy discounting i would have likely waited the year to compare with the Niro.
