Onward and upward: Nissan Leaf version 2 reviewed

Posted on

The new Leaf has made progress in other technical areas. A new ProPilot function fitted to Tekna models (or a £400 option on N-Connecta variants) provides active cruise control with lane-keeping. It uses a camera to spot lane markings on dual carriageways, keeping the Leaf neatly centred at a safe distance behind other vehicles. I found the system easy to use and simple to adjust using wheel-mounted controls for adjusting maximum speed and the gap ahead.

ProPilot works right down to zero and will make sure you keep your hands on the wheel – the software will flash up warnings, beep and then start slowing the car down if you remove your hands from the wheel for more than about 10 seconds.
