2020 Nissan Leaf
#46 of 2020 Sedan/Hatchback/Wagons
#110 of all 2020 vehicles
The Leaf, a mainstay of Nissan's lineup since 2011, is a midsize hatchback with seating up to 5. The Leaf provides superior EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, easing fuel costs and reducing pollution. The Leaf has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Nissan offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.
We estimate that the 2020 Nissan Leaf has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0442% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.0422%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0442% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.0422% chance of being injured.
Compared to the average vehicle, the 2020 Nissan Leaf is 5% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2020 Nissan Leaf is 12% less likely to result in a fatal accident.
Active safety features with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. The following active safety systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2020 Nissan Leaf: Automatic Emergency Braking w/ Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Warning.
Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.
