Comfortable, quick, quiet and feature-packed!

This review is based on a lengthy test drive, but I'm likely to buy one soon. The trim levels are a bit confusing, but if you're looking to get the most value for your money, I would go with the Engage version. It stickers at $44K, has 216 miles of range and includes: heated front and rear seats, heated steering wheel, heads-up display, radar adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, power folding outside mirrors and much more! It also has a pretty decent sound system. I really enjoyed driving it, finding the Ariya to be quiet, comfortable and fun to drive. I think Nissan did a great job with this car. My only caveat is that the top-end Platinum e-4orce stickers at $63K, which is a lot of money, especially compared to other similar cars from Audi, Hyundai, Genesis and Volvo.

Ariya lives up to the hype

I'm one of the few lucky early reservationists for the Ariya who got the vehicle delivered in mid-December 2022. I placed the reservation all the way back in November 2021. The whole experience, with reserving the vehicle online until delivery, was really pleasant. Multiple times during the very long waiting period Nissan reached out to check on me, sent me a few Ariya branded swags (a branded tote bag, a Nissan t-shirt, a Ariya branded Yeti cup, and I think some other reservationists depending on time of order got an Oculus VR headset pre-loaded with a virtual Ariya experience game in it). Nissan also held an in-person driving experience event which allowed the reservationists to test drive the vehicles. Overall, it was a cool experience through the launch process. About the ownership so far, I'm surprised how much I'm enjoying the EV ownership. Nissan provides a 1-year free charging with EVgo network. That's a wonderful incentive over most of the competitions. My Ariya is a Premier trim with 2WD. Stated range with 100% SOC is ~320 miles. Actual driving miles is around 280 so far based on my driving experience. Being a new EV owner, I don't really know if this is good or bad yet in terms of efficiency compared to other competitors, I need more education on this, but it works for my needs so far. The interior of the Ariya is the highlight of the vehicle. I'm impressed with the large glass moon-roof, the ingress/egress power driver seat function, the wireless AppleCarPlay, the heated seats front and rear seats, heads-up display, camera-view rear mirror. And to me, the best feature is the ProPilot 2.0 that allows hands free driving on interstates and freeways. It makes driving so much less tiring/stressful. I don't know if I'll ever buy another daily driven vehicle without this feature. Overall, I'm loving the Ariya and I definitely recommend it to anyone.

We went in to buy a Rogue and left with an Ayira. Ended up with the Evolve+ trim line in the super cool North Lights color that will change colors in different light. Had not planned on making the EV change yet so we had to scramble to make the needed adjustments at home with charging. The car is so easy to drive and makes a great daily driver as you will be less fatigued due to the ease of driving the Ayira. The dealership needs to spend more time educating new owners on how to use the EV. Our first stop at a charging station was super interesting as we could not figure out how to get the charger off the car. Overall we love the car. We are getting about 300 miles on a full charge.

Worth the Wait

Got my Premier edition in early January and I can only say it was well worth the wait. This car is incredibly smooth, nimble and fun to drive. Nissan incorporated a lot of technology and it is easy to learn and use. Very roomy, quiet, comfortable and stylish inside. The two driving screens are easy to see, manipulate and manage without distracting from the drive. If you can get a model with ProPilot 2.0 it is well worth it. Took like 5 minutes to get the hang of and it drives the car hands free really well. At first I thought the back storage might be too small, but it fit everything I had in my larger previous SUV with room to spare. Great job Nissan!

Very smooth ride

We got the base engage model as it was the only one available in stock and it's really nice! The drive is amazingly smooth. It does take some getting use to for the new type of stick shift and takes some time to explore all the features. I do wish the side mirrors were heated since it already has electric wires through it for the autoclose function. The phone slot in the center console is still there but doesn't do anything. It's originally for the wireless charging capability but the base model doesn't come with it. Storage is minimal. The center console is GIANT and it's cool that it moves but it does cut into the backseat leg room and I wonder what's in there? For such a huge console, there is zero storage in it. Maybe some coins when you open it.
