2019 Volkswagen e-Golf vs 2019 Nissan Leaf

2019 Volkswagen e-Golf vs 2019 Nissan Leaf

Years ago, we compared the 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf to the 2015 Nissan Leaf, and today we are revisiting this comparison with the newest model of each vehicle. We want to show you how each of these vehicles has changed in the last four years, by comparing the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf to the 2019 Nissan Leaf.

Let’s start with the price. The price has not changed much over the years. Now, the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf has a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $31,895 for the SE trim level, and the 2019 Nissan Leaf has a starting MSRP of $29,990 for the S trim level. Sticking with these two trim levels, we will compare some basic features in the chart below. Continue reading for more information on the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf and the 2019 Nissan Leaf with our comparison page.

Both of these vehicles are hatchback style vehicles with a capacity for five passengers. Hatchback vehicles are similar to sedan vehicles, but they have more cargo space in the rear. With such an emphasis on cargo space, we are happy to say that the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf has a maximum interior cargo volume of 52.7 cubic feet of space, while the 2019 Nissan Leaf has a maximum interior cargo volume of just 30 cubic feet. The 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf also has two seat-back storage pockets, which are not available for the 2019 Nissan Leaf.

Another comparison that we love to make is warranty. The Volkswagen e-Golf is the only Volkswagen vehicle excluded from The People First Warranty, which is a shame, but it still wins in the warranty category in our eyes. Both of these vehicles have the same power-train warranties and roadside assistance, but the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf has a longer corrosion warranty at 144 months and unlimited miles, compared with 60 months and unlimited miles.
