The new Nissan Ariya has been named a double winner at this year’s Auto Express Awards, securing both the ‘Best Mid-Sized Company Car’ trophy and the coveted overall ‘Car of the Year’ title.

Now available for customers to order, with a fully electric range of up to 329 miles, the Ariya features Japanese-inspired design, a luxurious and spacious cabin and advanced technologies.

Andrew Humberstone, managing director at Nissan GB, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to receive this recognition for our incredible new 100% electric crossover and would like to thank the judges for this fantastic award. The Ariya perfectly encapsulates the design, tech and performance of our next generation EVs and will continue Nissan’s pioneering journey in electrification and support our route to carbon neutrality.”

Auto Express’ judges were keen to highlight the Ariya’s all-round talents and praised the car’s compelling blend of head-turning looks, premium appeal and composed driving dynamics, plus a range of well over 300 miles.

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.”

Drawing on Nissan's leadership in electrification and segment-defining crossover capabilities, the Nissan Ariya seamlessly delivers advanced driving capabilities and a premium EV experience.

Opinion piece from Auto Express now available too;

For those of us who’ve driven and judged this year’s Auto Express Car of the Year, it didn’t take us long to realise it was a winner. The very best cars are always like that – within moments of sitting in them and driving away, you know you’re in something special. And that’s definitely the case with the Nissan Ariya.

I really do love that colour on this car.

I am not surprised it has been awarded like this. I was reading different comparisons and it seems like Nissan is really making some amazing changes to their vehicles which are hurting bigger, more expensive brands like Telsa.
