2018 Nissan Leaf's Interior Changes

The interior has changed a bit since the 2017 model year. Some of the standard options from the 2017 model are now considered optional equipment, which helps to bring the total cost of the standard equipment on each model year down. On the SV trim, you'll still get cloth seats, Bluetooth technology to stay in touch with friends and family and a navigation system that comes standard. You'll also get cruise control, but on the 2018 model it's been upgraded to adaptive cruise control so that the vehicle will automatically slow if someone gets in front of you on the road. Adaptive cruise control was not available on the 2017 model year. Heated seats are now optional on the 2018 model, which is one of those features that can really increase the overall cost of a vehicle.
