Jonny Smith reviews the Ariya on The Late Brake Show and gives a detailed look of what the Ariya has to offer against the likes of the Tesla Model Y, Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Volkswagen ID.4.
could be that the id4 and mach e trunks were measured with the seats down?He says the "boot" (trunk) is 468L. That's about 16.5 cuft. That's barely half the space that an ID4 or Mach E has. The 3 cars have almost exactly the same exterior dimensions. 16.5 cuft is less room than a Kona. Which is a much smaller car. How can the trunk be so small?
Don't forget that Nissan won't be holding out a carrot in front of you with IOU'sthe reason why i prefer the ariya out of these is for the following:
ariya over model y because i can still get federal incentive, handsfree autonomous driving, and better build quality.
ariya over mustang mach e because more effective drivers assistance features, especially automatic braking (check out the iihs testing videos).
ariya over id4 because id4 interior looks to be pretty plasticky, and doesnt offer great autonomous driving.
however, if i cant get the ariya by the end of this year, i will probably have to get the mach e or id4, or maybe the upcoming ioniq 5
It may be the way that he is measuring the amount of storage space. According to Ford, The Mach E has 29.7 cuft of trunk space with the seats up and 59.7 cuft with the seats folded. However, in a Late Brake Show review of the Mach E they say that the Mach E has 400L of boot space. That's only about 14 cuft. So, based on his measuring method, the Ariya boot should have a little more space that the Mach E. I guess well need to actually see one with a luggage test.could be that the id4 and mach e trunks were measured with the seats down?
