Overall Auto Express Rating - 5.0 out of 5

Verdict

The Ariya is a great leap in the right direction for Nissan. It's more premium-feeling than anything we've yet seen from the brand, and it backs this up with some great engineering and technology underneath the stylish body. Performance and refinement are impressive, as is the Ariya's range from even the smaller battery model. Individual touches inside and plenty of functional features combined with interesting design and materials make it an appealing choice that proves Nissan's electrification push is really gathering pace.

...

It's this mix of strong performances in every area where a new car – and an all-new EV – needs to score highly that makes the Ariya such an appealing proposition. Revolutionary new electric cars are few and far between these days, but as a successful evolution of the formula, Nissan's first next-generation model is a convincing line in the sand for the Japanese brand.

4/5

Late entrant to a burgeoning segment shines by virtue of its slick drive, attention to detail and on-paper performance

... first impressions suggest the Ariya takes the dependability and rational appeal of the pioneering Leaf, while injecting a substantial dose of kerb appeal into the bargain. Certainly, the Ariya is much more than an electric Qashqai successor: it feels like the beginning of a brand's transformation, and – on the basis of its strengths – there's good reason to be excited about what will follow.

I realise there's now a separate Ariya forum but our readers might like to look at this comparison test:
