Has anyone tried transporting large dogs in an Ariya? Especially in an E4ORCE variant that has a smaller boot capacity. I wonder if the boot is big enough for my German Shepherd to be able to freely jump in, lie down, get up while the boot is closed, turn around stretch out etc? I'm a bit worried about switching from my BMW X3 which has a larger boxier boot compared to an Ariya.

Also does anyone know where exactly 60 litres are lost in the boot in the all wheel drive E4ORCE variant, is it only under the floor?

Thanks in advance

I'd think that you'd want to remove the privacy cover and then also flip down the back seats to give a larger dog more room to move. Thank you for considering the comfort of traveling pets -- that can often make or break a deal!

Many thanks for your response and inputs.
I agree entirely with pnwariya thoughts on this matter. I own a slightly smaller version of your German Shepard (Belgian Malinois). I’ve measured the interior height and width myself and there is plenty of room for your pup. (the AWD version deck height is virtually the same as FWD but loses some under floor storage space in the boot.) One thing to consider however is that the entry egress is a bit on the high side as compared to some crossover/SUV’s. So hopefully your Shepard will be able to spring up into an Ariya without your assistance.

I would just keep the x3. The Airya is probably the smallest in cargo space compared to competitors.

My 80-pound mostly yellow lab claims the back seat of our 2017 Leaf as his own. We have a pet seat cover and large towel in place to protect the leather seats. Already have a new seat cover for the Ariay when it arrives.

We bought the 4Knines Rear Seat Cover for cars, trucks and SUVs. It is fitted to extend down the front and sides of the seat, with head rest straps for fastening at the top. It appears to well made and comes with a "lifetime warranty." We purchased it through Chewy.com for $59.99. The seat cover, our dog and the two of us are still awaiting the Ariyas arrival.
