Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan LEAF will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan 370Z.

Convenience
With the Nissan 370Z 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). The Nissan 370Z is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan LEAF. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan 370Z and the Nissan LEAF have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan 370Z is much wider than the Nissan LEAF, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Nissan 370Z, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan LEAF.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Nissan 370Z transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan LEAF.

Handling
The Nissan 370Z has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan LEAF, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan 370Z has a much more powerful engine than the Nissan LEAF. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the Nissan 370Z seats a lot fewer people than the Nissan LEAF. The Nissan 370Z has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan LEAF, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Nissan 370Z comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan LEAF.
