Nissan Leaf makes the list of the best hot sedans of 2021
When shopping for a new car, you are probably weighing the benefits of a car over an SUV. But, if you get a hatchback, you’ll get the best of both vehicle worlds. Why? Because a hatchback offers an agile ride similar to a sports car, but offers the cargo space you crave from a small SUV. Then there are the incredible fuel efficiency ratings you’ll get from a hatchback, and the quirky styling can’t be beat. And, if you go for the 2021 Nissan Leaf, which was on the US News & World Report’s list of 13 best hot sedans of 2021, you will never have to pay for gasoline.

Nissan Leaf 2021
The Nissan Leaf brought electric driving to the masses when it debuted in December 2010. Since then, the Leaf has improved in every way – design, technology, range and style. For 2021, it offers two versions so that you get the desired autonomy. The Leaf offers a range of up to 140 miles while the Leaf Plus variant has increased the EPA range to 226 miles. The Leaf 2021 offers 23.6 cubic feet of space for your cargo and goes up to 30 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down.
“Convenience isn’t all the Leaf is good for. The acceleration of this electric vehicle may surprise you, and its one-pedal drive system is a fun alternative to foot training that driving can become from time to time. The Leaf has compound handling, but its ride does little to protect pavement imperfections, ”according to Blair Travers, News & World Report editor.
The 2021 Nissan Leaf also offers modern technology to help you and your passengers stay connected and entertained. Apple CarPlay and standard Android Auto offer seamless smartphone integration so your apps, contacts, and playlists are always accessible on the go. The user-friendly NissanConnect infotainment system offers a touchscreen with bold graphics and lets you easily switch between your limitless entertainment options.
