Safety Features of the 2020 Nissan Leaf
The Nissan Leaf has a number of safety features added as a standard in the 2020 year model. The car is roomy and well equipped. With five trims available of the 2020 Nissan Leaf, you are sure to find a trim that suits you the best. The trims available are S, SV, S Plus, SV Plus, and SL Plus. Here we take a look at the safety innovations that this model offers.
Safety Shield 360
The 2020 Nissan Leaf comes with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 suite as a standard across all the trims. The Safety Shield 360 offers driver-assistance features including rear automatic braking, pedestrian-detection, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warnings, and lane departure warning.
The ProPilot Assist is available as a standard feature on the SL Plus trim and can be added on to the SV, SV Plus and SL trim as a part of the optional technology package offered by Nissan. The assist system has a centrally mounted radar module and a camera behind the windshield. The system improves the adaptive cruise control of the vehicle and allows auto lane-centering as well as automatic braking and accelerating in relation to the automobile in front.
The 2020 Nissan Leaf is equipped with anti-lock brakes that detect when extreme braking causes a tire to stop rotating. The brake pressure is automatically modulated to let the tire rotate, improving the Leaf’s ability to brake while turning.
The car comes with front impact airbags, side-impact airbags, overhead as well as knee airbags. The airbags protect the driver as well as the passengers in case of a collision from various directions. The knee airbags have been added as a new feature in the 2020 model of the Nissan Leaf.
The 2020 Nissan Leaf also comes with a stability control system. The system detects when the handling limits have been crossed and automatically reduces engine power. The system also applies select brakes to help the driver maintain control.
In the 2020 model, the pedestrian safety warning has been updated in volume and tone. This system warns pedestrians of the presence of the vehicle around them.
