2020 Nissan LEAF® Vs. 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric In Fremont, CA

When it comes to choosing the best new electric vehicle for you and your commute, you've likely encountered a market with several quality options. So, it becomes a question of which new electric car is best for your needs. Since you're considering the 2020 Nissan LEAF®, you might be wondering how the new LEAF® compares to the competition. Let's take a moment to see how the LEAF® electric compares to its chief rival from Hyundai: the 2021 Kona Electric.

To help you see which vehicle gives you more features and performance for your money, we've put together a side-by-side comparison of the 2020 LEAF® and the 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric. Of course, the best comparison is how the car drives. We invite you to Premier Nissan of Fremont in Fremont, California, and take a test drive of the new Nissan LEAF®.

The 2020 Nissan LEAF® Vs. 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric

One of the biggest competitors to the LEAF® EV is the 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric. Both vehicles give you the convenience and versatility of a hatchback, so it can be hard to make a decision at first glance. As you start to compare these vehicles, one begins to rise above. When you want seating for five, 92.4 cubic-feet of interior passenger volume, and 116 cubic-feet of total interior volume, then you want the new LEAF®. This Nissan electric car gives you the room for your crew and your gear while giving you aerodynamic efficiency for maximum range. Exterior styling elements include wind-diffusing side mirrors and an aerodynamic rear spoiler.

The Nissan also looks after your comfort and convenience with a host of standard features in the base model. Starting with a Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Start, when you climb inside, you'll have a tilt and telescoping steering column and sun visors with vanity mirrors and extensions for tailored comfort in the driver's seat. The variable intermittent windshield wipers and intermittent rear window wiper will help keep your vision clear when the weather turns. Be sure to talk to our sales team about how to trade-in your car during your visit.

When it comes to keeping you and your passengers safe behind the wheel, both the LEAF® and the 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric come with a suite of standard safety features. In the LEAF® S, we find the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System with dual-stage supplemental front airbags, as well as the LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren). Other key safety highlights include an energy-absorbing steering column, a tire pressure monitoring system with easy-fill tire alert, and Zone Body construction with front and rear crumple zones.
