Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The Nissan Ariya is more expensive than the similar-sized Skoda Enyaq but costs less than any Tesla Model Y or Volvo C40.

While the range of the entry-level 63kWh battery version is nothing to write home about, you do get loads of standard equipment. Dual-zone climate control, a 360-degree parking camera, heated front seats, LED headlights and a heat pump (for more efficient warming of the interior) are all thrown in, and you get loads of standard safety kit too. 

Overview

So far, we’ve only tried a late-stage prototype of the Nissan Ariya. It’s easy to drive and the interior quality is impressive but some rivals have longer ranges and can charge up more quickly. Ride comfort could be better too.

  • Stylish high-quality interior
  • Even entry-level models are well equipped
  • Well-judged brakes
  • Choppy ride
  • Rivals can go further and charge quicker
  • Relatively small boot
