I agree it's an interesting choice. I think the VW wins out on looks, especially the backside, but this has some features going for it, including a heads up display and heat pump. It's also at the same price point as the ID.4 so should be a competitive offering. I like the driver info display behind the steering better on the Ariya, but like the main screen of the VW better so far ( independent of the functionality ).I am considering this along side the VW. I like both cars. I want four wheel drive so the Ariya and the ID.4 will be arriving around the same time next year. The Ariya looks to be more powerful and it’s 4 wheel drive perhaps more sporty.
In time there will be more reviews of both vehicles and I can make an informed choice. I think Nissan will start promoting the Ariya in the US next month.
