I just got a 2013 Leaf S and I am very happy with it. I also have a 2011 Prius Hatchback and I have made several comparisons between the two cars. In most of the feature comparisons I prefer the Leaf design. There is one feature where I think the Prius is better designed. It is the outside rear view mirrors. I could describe all of the ways that they differ but the easiest thing to do is compare them yourself. I think the most important way the Prius mirrors are better is that you can see better with them. But all in all I have to congratulate Nissan on making a wonderful car.
