​​In 2022, the independent safety experts at Euro NCAP evaluated the Nissan Ariya's safety credentials and awarded it their top five-star score. Nissan's family EV received an 86 per cent score for adult occupant protection, 89 per cent for child occupant protection, and 93 per cent for safety assistance systems.

Standard kit includes the ProPilot semi-autonomous system, which assists the driver with steering inputs, acceleration and braking. Its intention is to help make motorway driving and navigating through town traffic a little easier and less stressful, with individual functions such as Blind Spot Intervention, Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Intelligent Cruise Control and different levels of automatic emergency braking that recognise pedestrians and cyclists as well as other cars on the road.

Top-spec models also come with a ProPilot Park system. Tap a button and the Ariya takes over steering, accelerator and braking to bring you into a parking space.

The Ariya has yet to appear in our Driver Power owner satisfaction survey. Nissan, as a brand, finished in a middling 19th position out of 32 brands in our best manufacturer ratings.

Warranty

Nissan offers a standard three-year/60,000-mile warranty for the Ariya’s standard components. This increases to five-years/60,00-miles for the dedicated EV parts. The lithium-ion battery is covered for eight years/100,000 miles. Other manufacturers such as Hyundai and Kia offer five and seven-year warranties respectively, while Toyota customers benefit from up to ten years cover.

Servicing

The Ariya benefits from Nissan’s Enhanced Service Plans, which includes two, three and four-year servicing packages. Customers can make a single payment, or take up the option of flexible monthly instalments. 

Servicing for the Ariya is required every 12 months or 18,000 miles.
