Overview of the Nissan Ariya

The Nissan Ariya is an impressive electric SUV that will be a popular choice with families and is packed with equipment. The cabin is spacious, the dashboard and displays are futuristic, and the overall impression is of an EV to impress.

Why choose a Nissan Ariya?

There are two electric motors for the stylish Ariya with a range of outputs and a maximum range of 310 miles.

The entry-level model has two-wheel drive and a 63kWh battery offering 223 miles thanks to the power output of 215 bhp. The longer range comes from the 87kWh battery producing 239 bhp. This model is also available with all-wheel drive which sees the range falling to 295 miles.

And if you want a high-performance electric SUV, then there’s the e-4orce model that uses the larger battery to produce 389 bhp and a range of 248 miles - with a 0 to 62 mph sprint time of just five seconds.

As should be expected, both batteries are capable of rapid charging with the larger battery adding 186 miles of range in just 30 minutes.

Nissan Ariya in a nutshell

Leasing a Nissan Ariya is an easy process, with Nissan having a track record in delivering ground-breaking cars. For example, they delivered the first family-friendly SUV that was cheap to run in the shape of the Qashqai, and the new Ariya will also cause a stir.

What to expect when you lease a Nissan Ariya

From the head-turning futuristic exterior styling, this eye-catching look extends to the impressive cabin. As with most EVS, there are few buttons to press, and Nissan has opted for touch-sensitive areas on the dashboard for operating the climate control - the button vibrates sightly when depressed.

The cabin is spacious, with a flat floor and the dashboard holds a pair of 12.3-inch displays for the infotainment and virtual instruments. Both screens can be customised to suit the driver and there’s also a large head-up display to show the car’s most important information.

There’s also Nissan’s impressive semi-autonomous driving system, ProPilot, that sees the car controlling the distance between it and the vehicle in front, its speed and lane position. The system can also be used as a parking assistant.

With so much technology onboard, Nissan will deliver software updates over the air without the driver needing to visit a dealership. The infotainment system has a virtual assistant that’s one of the best currently available and utilises natural speech so the driver can quickly check on the state of the car’s battery.

Handling is a dream with the e-4orce system delivering torque between the rear and front wheels and the system also controls braking and power output. The result is a ride that is more stable than most rivals and it’s a smooth experience - driver confidence will undoubtedly increase in what is a large vehicle.

Essentially, the Nissan Ariya is a head-turning creation that is designed to impress; if you’re looking for an excellent battery-powered SUV to lease that has just about everything you need, then this is the car for you.
