New Nissan Ariya vs used Audi Q4 e-tron practicality
The new Nissan Ariya may have sci-fi style, but for similar money, a lightly used Audi Q4 e-tron also looks very tempting. So, which is the better buy?...
Space and practicality
Front space, rear space, seating flexibility, boot
Most people will be comfortable in the front of both the Nissan Ariya and the Audi Q4 e-tron, although if you're exceptionally lanky, it's worth noting that there's slightly more space in the latter.
In the rear, meanwhile, you get a bit more leg room in the Ariya and a bit more head room in the Q4, but once again both are spacious enough for most needs.
The Ariya and Q4 are available with height-adjustable boot floors, but only the former gets it as standard; the latter's original owner would've had to pay extra. Both models have rear seats that fold flat in a 60/40 split.
It's worth noting that, while officially smaller in capacity, we managed to fit more carry-on suitcases in the Ariya's boot, due to its more practical shape.
