The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Nissan Leaf has outgrown its nerdy, commuter-car phase and steers now toward mainstream. The 2020 Tesla Model Y adapts the formula of the best-selling Model 3 and applies it to a more popular crossover style for a winning combination.
