Nissan Ariya 2023 – the next SUV to take over Europe?

Nissan Ariya is the first fully electric SUV announced by the Japanese company. Initially presented at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, the SUV received a lot of mixed signals from users all over the world. Let us dive deeper into the details of this crossover SUV.

Size and Design

Looking at the size of Nissan Ariya, it can be placed somewhere between Qashqai and X-Trail. A length of 4,595 mm and a wheelbase of 2,775 mm guarantee enough space for both front and back seats. The ARIYA design is sleek and futuristic, with small LED headlights that glow brightly at night and fade away during the day.

Nissan’s new vision is complemented with the new lighted emblem located at the center of the front mask, which is a distinctive element. When looking at the car from the front, it is most resemblant to the Mercedes EQ series of vehicles. A pair of 19-inch alloy wheels comes standard on the ARIYA Nissan. 20-inch alloy wheels are available on higher-spec versions. 5 geometrical angular shards with a chrome finish make up the unusual alloy wheel design.

The back view of the car is different compared to the front, slightly more aggressive and sharp. The roof spoiler and full-length rear taillight are sporty additions to this family SUV’s overall appeal. Because of its design, the boot had to suffer a little. 466 liters of space will be sufficient to cover the basics, but for a longer trip, one might opt for a rooftop cargo carrier. In comparison, Ford’s Mustang Mach E has 402 liters of space, while Volkswagen’s ID.4 is at 543 liters.

The dashboard has two 12.3-inch digital screens side by side, similar to Hyundai IONIQ 5, but with elegantly refined lines. The instrument panel is replaced by a screen immediately in front of the driver and the infotainment hub is the screen to the side. The hub has voice controls, with instructions activated by saying “hi Nissan” or “hey Nissan.” Touch-sensitive controls embedded in the materials replace standard controls such as buttons and dials.
