2014 Lexus CT 200h vs. 2015 Nissan LEAF Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Lexus CT 200h than in the Nissan LEAF, due to the Lexus CT 200h's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Nissan LEAF will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus CT 200h.

Convenience
With the Lexus CT 200h you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan LEAF, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Lexus CT 200h or the Nissan LEAF, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus CT 200h will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan LEAF.

Dimensions
The Lexus CT 200h is about the same width as the Nissan LEAF. The Lexus CT 200h is slightly shorter than the Nissan LEAF, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Lexus CT 200h has much less torque than the Nissan LEAF, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus CT 200h has about the same turning radius as the Nissan LEAF, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus CT 200h has less horsepower than the Nissan LEAF, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus CT 200h and the Nissan LEAF.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus CT 200h than that of the Nissan LEAF.
