Auto Express' judges highlighted the ARIYA's all-round attributes, praising its head-turning looks, premium appeal and composed driving dynamics, as well as its long range.

For business users too, it was judged that "the newcomer goes straight to the top of the class".

Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief of Auto Express, added:

"The ARIYA is the most premium-feeling Nissan we've seen yet, but it backs this up with impressive technology, punchy performance and clever storage. It mixes style and substance seamlessly, and is an advanced EV right for the modern era, as many motorists seriously consider - with many making the switch - to all-electric motoring. It's our Car of the Year 2022."

The All-New Nissan ARIYA is built on an all-new dedicated electric vehicle platform and offers stunning styling, a high-quality and spacious interior, as well as a long range of up to 310 miles WLTP.
