The Leaf SV/SL has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver\'s house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 doesn’t offer a remote starting system.
To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Leaf has a standard rear fixed intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.
Both the Leaf and the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 offer available heated front seats. The Leaf SL also has standard heated rear seats to keep those passengers extremely comfortable in the winter. Heated rear seats aren’t available in the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4.
On extremely cold Winter days, the Leaf’s optional heated steering wheel provides comfort, allowing the driver to steer safely and comfortably before the car heater warms up. The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 doesn’t offer a heated steering wheel.
