After getting more photos yesterday, it definitely looks like a competitor. There isn't much in the way of specs to compare yet, but it should be on par with the Ionic 5 I think. I still prefer the Ariya in styling/looks, I don't like the tail lights or seats I've seen in the Kia so much. Will have to wait and see how Ariya compares on price, last rumors made it sound cheaper but that's not official pricing, will they see their competitors and raise prices to match?
All indications are the Ariya will be less money across the board. I do believe the Kia offers more,
which would be in keeping with the brand. I wanted to like the EV6, but I’m just not fond of the rear, at all. The color choices are lean too.
Nissan won’t raise their prices to “meet” the competition. Kia‘s brand has a better reputation. Nissan
will need to prove they can build a better EV first, then, we will see.
I am all over the burgundy and black, and hope to secure the Ariya by March!
