Luckily the Leaf has changed with the times, and it’s still a bit ahead of its newer rivals in terms of range, that all-important measure of an EV’s real-world usability. For 2016, the Leaf’s uplevel SV and SL trim levels now come standard with a higher-capacity, 30.0-kWh battery pack that replaces the previous 24.0-kWh battery, which is still offered on the base Leaf S. The new, larger battery affords an EPA-rated range of 107 miles, a useful improvement over the 24-kWh Leaf’s 84 miles.

All-new or updated electric cars are imminent from Ford , General Motors , BMW , Hyundai , and Volkswagen , all of which promise to deliver 100 miles of range or better. But as of this writing, the Leaf is the only non-Tesla EV that tops the century mark. The Kia Soul EV is next-best, at 93 miles of rated range, while others such as the Volkswagen e-Golf and Ford Focus Electric —in their current forms, at least—are rated at only 83 miles and 76 miles, respectively, on a full charge.

The Leaf’s new battery lived up to its promise in our experience. In mixed driving, including some battery-sapping highway stints, we measured a maximum driving range of 100 miles. Introduce more variables, like a highway-intensive commute or more extreme temperatures, and that number would decrease, predictably. But if it’s to be driven exclusively around town at lower speeds, it doesn’t seem far-fetched to see the Leaf match, or even beat, the EPA-rated 107-mile figure.

The Altima is Nissan ’s long-running midsize sedan. Bigger than the Sentra and Versa, the Altima slots below the Maxima in the automaker’s sedan lineup in both price and size.

The 2017 Nissan Altima gives consumers a choice of a fuel-efficient 179-hp, 177-lb-ft of torque 2.5-liter I-4 that delivers an EPA-rated 27/39 mpg city/highway (26/37 mpg for the SR trim). For quicker acceleration, the 270-hp, 251-lb-ft of torque 3.5-liter V-6 engine is available and is rated at 22/32 mpg. Both engines are mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that routes power to the front wheels of this sedan.

Nissan’s 4.0-inch Advanced Drive-Assist Display, Bluetooth Hands-free phone system, push button ignition, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, and active grille shutters for improved fuel efficiency are standard features on the 2017 Nissan Altima. The available NissanConnect features navigation, Mobile Apps smartphone integration, a 7.0-inch color display screen with voice recognition, and turn-by-turn navigation integrated into the Advance Drive-Assist. Additionally, the available Remote Engine Start system includes Intelligent Climate Control, which automatically sets the Altima’s interior to ideal settings.
