2015 FIAT 500e vs  Nissan LEAF near Norfolk, VA

The LEAF is surprisingly fun to drive, the quick acceleration off the line gives a sporty feel to the beginning for the drive but as you keep going that feeling gives away to a very consistent and smooth drive. Driving a Fiat 500e is what you'd hope for and more. The low-end torque of being an EV gives you a lot of pep at speeds up to 40 mph and then the power you need for accelerating on the freeway. Electronic Stability Control and a low center of gravity also makes the Fiat 500e a blast on mountain curves.

Nissan LEAF Features & Design

From the moment you hear its signature power-up chime, you are in for a blast behind the wheel of the Nissan LEAF. A heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel will keep your hands warm on chilly mornings. Ultra modern gauges and an easy-to-read Display Drive Computer puts information like range, battery charge level, and power usage info front and center. Fun that's efficient. Practical that's cool. The best of all worlds, all in one car.

Conclusions

The 500e gives the driver & passenger plenty of space with comfortable racing-style leatherette seats. While it's not built for long distance drives, the Leaf is well equipped and a lot of effort was put into making it comfortable for the driver and the passengers. The LEAF has more than enough hip room and headroom for the driver and can easily carry the entire family.
