Styling Matters More – 2018 Nissan Leaf vs Chevy Bolt

By  | 

We have yet to hear of the longer-range second-generation Nissan Leaf’s launch date but it appears that this model has been spotted by AutoBlog‘s spy photographers.

Although the car’s overall size and shape seems similar to the existing Leaf, it appears that the Nissan IDS electric concept car design has been injected into the next-gen Leaf, from its roof, angular headlights and taillights.

Over at the front fascia, the Leaf’ futuristic headlights have been toned down and it looks smaller and less vertical than the existing Leaf, while its rear looks aggressive with a big spoiler. This model looks almost like a small, electric Murano.

But, how does it compare against the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV?

The all-new Bolt shares pretty similar design cues with other small Chevy models, such as the Spark and the Sonic. Its blanking plate grille in front is alike the Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid.

The Bolt EV appears to be upright and a tall hatchback sporting a rising window line, body creases and other elements that give it a racing profile. Its overall design hides its basic shape while its interior is surprisingly huge.

So, which do you think is the better looker?
