First impressions of the 2023 Nissan Ariya

Nissan pioneered electric vehicles in North America with the Nissan LEAF. The 2023 Nissan Ariya is the logical follow-up to the LEAF, a model with more range, better performance and more interior space. It’s a compact SUV that’s quite a bit roomier than the LEAF with a large trunk and lots of interior space, especially in the back.

The dashboard has a modern, clean look. You’ll quickly notice the digital buttons embedded in the wood of the dashboard, which add to the refined and luxurious look of the interior. From the outside, the Ariya has similar dimensions to a Nissan Rogue, but its silhouette is sportier with a sloping roofline in the back.

The success of the Nissan Ariya will come from its generous range and performance, especially the performance of the top-of-the-line models. With 382 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque in addition to a range of over 400 kilometers (248 miles), the Ariya will be able to compete with more exclusive models like the Tesla Model Y and the Audi e-tron, although its price should be more accessible.
