I called my Leaf Certified Nissan dealer and asked them. They say it is very close to being the same size as the Versa.

Agree, nice graphic, I assumed that the Leaf was smaller than Prius. Any idea on the interior width compared to Prius?

Here we go. I'll update the sheet if I get more specs.

Good stuff...thought I knew about this car, but didn't appreciate how close it's dimensions were to Prius.
Still interested in an interior cargo and passenger space comparison if you find it.

Is this the 2010 Prius, or the 2009 model?

Excellent news and I love the graphic! It looks like I will be able to fit more stuff in than I thought. The cargo area is quite deep, but I was concerned about the length as we often cart around photography equipment in the Prius.

The Prius uses some of the cargo volume for a spare tire.

I suspect the Leaf does not have a spare, right?

Also, it will be interesting to see how the back seat folds down in the Leaf.
