Roadshow's Brian Cooley tested the next generation Nissan LEAF in SL trim with tech package. His take is that it's very much improved and worth a look.

The first part of the review focuses on the interior. The cars looks better within and it's truly quiet. Cooley adds that the new LEAF is enjoyable to drive.

Commenting on the e-Pedal. Cooley likes it because you rarely need to use the real brakes.

Nissan ProPILOT was called advanced assist at its current stage. Cooley notes it's far from autonomous driving, but it can be useful in traffic or on the highway.

Of course what will attract consumers is the 40 kWh battery for around 150 miles of range at a price of $30,875 before $7,500 federal tax credit. It's that price that will be the main draw, we think.
