The Nissan Ariya. My first EV. I'm never going back to ICE
There's so much to like about the Ariya, but in a crowded electric SUV market, is it the best car for the money?
This is the entry level Advance trim with the smaller battery option. It's basically the cheapest Ariya money can buy however despite that it's includes a multitude of features.
As standard the car includes the same 12.3 inch screens you see across the whole range, privacy glass, Pro-Pilot (adaptive Cruise Control), collision mitigation, a heat pump, blind spot warning indicators, wireless Apple CarPlay, a wireless phone charger, kick opening rear hatch, auto dimming rear view mirror, auto dip headlights and much more. Not bad for an entry trim level car!
The build quality is excellent - it feels premium. The only downside in the interior are the small glove boxes. Yes, there are 2, however both a small and come to a narrow point meaning the available space is minimal. Is this a dealbreaker? Not really, it just means you have to carefully select what you store in them.
