Nissan ARIYA Shortlisted for Car of The Year 2023

Fusing together futuristic Japanese design and innovative powertrain technology, the Nissan ARIYA’s place in the shortlist is well-earned.

The Nissan ARIYA is a fully-electric crossover utilizing e-4orce technology, dual motors, and an all-wheel drive to produce a vehicle with greater control that is capable of anything.

With a range of fantastic features, it’s no wonder this impressive machine has made it onto the shortlist for such a prestigious award.

Read on for a closer look.

Minimalist, practical design

Utilizing elements of traditional Japanese design and craftsmanship, the Nissan ARIYA presents a minimalist design, opting for a single horizon-line instead of more complex contours.

The result is a focused, practical interior aided by other features such as a flat floor giving a more spacious, inviting feel for both driver and passengers.

Inspired by the Japanese concept of sei (meaning ‘clever treatment of design or function’), the Nissan ARIYA incorporates haptic controls to provide a more tactile response, and a clutter-free control unit.

On the door panels, you may also notice intricate black and white patterns inspired by the Japanese Kumiko, which plays on the concept of light and shadow.

This coordinates with the front shield which features the pattern in 3D, with the new illuminated Nissan brand logo sitting proudly in the centre.

Super-thin LED headlamps and light blades also bring a stylish, modern touch to the Nissan ARIYA, alongside sequential turn signals giving the car a unique design that stands out on the road.

When using the ProPILOT feature, you will also benefit from wrap-around ambient lighting which changes colour above the dashboard and door panels.

Modern technology with a twist

The Nissan ARIYA features a dual curved 12.3” display resting atop the single-line horizon dashboard, reflecting the concept of engawa, meaning “an undefined space between the inside and outside.”

This gives the driver cockpit a seamless, flowing look with plenty of breathing space creating a truly focused interior for each journey.

Featuring the BOSE premium sound system with active noise cancellation, you will also experience an immersive acoustic experience like no other, with 10 strategically-placed, high-performance speakers.

Connectivity inside the Nissan ARIYA is also impressive with an in-car virtual personal assistant activated with Nissan Voice Control. In a few simple words, you can ask your personal assistant to turn up the A/C or read your latest text messages to you.

The integrated display interface can also be personalised according to your needs, and with the NissanConnect Services App you can remotely lock or unlock the doors or adjust the climate control, so that you start each journey the way you mean to go on – effortlessly.

The Nissan ARIYA also allows you to connect in whichever way suits you, offering AndroidAuto and wireless Apple CarPlay, as well as wireless charging for your smartphone.

ProPILOT Park also makes parking a dream, allowing you to easily manoeuvre your way into a parking bay, taking over the steering, accelerator, and brakes – making parking far less of a hassle.

You will still have plenty of control however with the Nissan ARIYA thanks to a suite of other advanced driver assistance features.

The Intelligent Rear View Mirror allows you to see the road behind you when there are objects such as luggage blocking your view, while the Intelligent Around View Monitor provides four cameras giving you a virtual composite 360-degree view from above.
