Power Ranked 2016 Nissan LEAF SV worse.
"the spark feels like a performance car. the leaf feels like a higher performance family car. "
Looks/Style Ranked 2016 Nissan LEAF SV worse.
"the leaf is cute, but spark is objectively much funner and cuter looking 😊"
Front Seats Ranked 2016 Nissan LEAF SV better.
"more legroom, more comfortable "
Back Seats Ranked 2016 Nissan LEAF SV better.
"the leaf seats 3 in the back. the spark only seats 4. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2016 Nissan LEAF SV better.
"the leaf has tons more cargo space "
Family Car Ranked 2016 Nissan LEAF SV better.
"more cargo volume, better range, more comfortable interior "
Value Ranked 2016 Nissan LEAF SV worse.
"given how cheap the sparks ev are, and their level of performance compared w/ the leaf, the spark offers way more value for me "
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Nissan LEAF SV worse.
"overall, the spark EV has better performance, cuter looks, Significantly more robust battery management, which means the battery should last much longer without losing a significant amount of capacity (ie driving range). but most importantly to me the spark is a much better drivers car than the leaf. Since I am interested in cars that are fun to drive and are powered by electrons, on the used market the spark is one of the best deals and for me offers much more value than the first generation leaf. but they’re both awesome cars!"
