I think it's a way to get more headroom in lower-profile cars by not having a headliner. Might even be easier to assemble.Another big plus is the Ariya comes with a sunroof that actually opens and has a sunshade. What use is a sunroof you won't see as a driver, doesn't provide a nice breeze, but does allow for sunburn? Looking at you Tesla.
Such a disappointment. So close to being a great EV Crossover -- maybe the best EV crossover -- and then Nissan misses on a key aspect that helps make EV's great -- an aspect that they nailed so perfectly in the Nissan Leaf.I was able to take the Ariya for a (20m) test drive yesterday and can unfortunately confirm e-Pedal has creep, and I was unable to find an option in the settings to disable it. There's an e-Pedal menu section but the only thing there was whether to remember e-Pedal setting mode (when restarting the car).
That's a darn good question. There is ProPilot and ProPilot2. How do they function when the car in front stops? The Leafs come to a complete stop when in the Pilot mode without having to use the break pedal.I'm curious to find out if you are using ProPilot whether the car will be brought to a full stop. Logically it should as it has been doing up to this point, but maybe not with the Ariya.
I went to a drive event and the sales person said on ProPilot it will come to a complete stop and automatically restart if traffic moves within 30 seconds. Any longer that 30 seconds and pro pilot turns off and you have to manually move forward.That's a darn good question. There is ProPilot and ProPilot2.

he is so correct on my 2020 Leaf e-pedal is a dream and I love the 1 pedal driving on traffic MUST HAVE ON ARIYA! I may just keepI have a 2018 Leaf and recently ordered the Ariya because it matches my requirements, I love the looks and I'm very happy with the Leaf.
After watching the various first drive reviews, one thing really baffled me: e-Pedal has creep on the Ariya. That's a regression compared to the Leaf because it means the Ariya can't actually do one pedal driving. Why even call it e-Pedal then?!
I really really hope Nissan will allow us to disable creep using a software setting (like it is on my brother's Polestar 2) because I absolutely love one pedal driving. It's like they didn't even consider their existing customer base when designing the Ariya.
Absolutely ridiculous, I'm considering cancelling the order.
Thank you and - so sad - just drove literally 10 miles around town in my 2020 SL Plus and did not touch the brake pedal while in e-pedal once - so great!If you have a Leaf and are considering an Ariya, try driving your Leaf around town with e-pedal and e-con both off, and in the B driving mode, not the D mode.
Be super careful as it is dangerous as hell if you've been using the Leaf e-mode, especially if you stop on up or down hills.
