Pro pilot 2.0 may be a must have feature for some, but ofmthere are strings attached. First and foremost the trial period included with all Ariya trims that offer this feature does eventually expire. Thereafter an ongoing subscription fee must be paid to Nissan for 2.0 mapping. Exact cost for the ongoing mapping fee has yet to be disclosed by Nissan. However I assume it will be competitive with GM by coming in around $25.00/month or $300.00 annually. Secondly I many insurance companies are keeping a close eye on the potential liability factor for vehicles equipped with the hands free feature. Seems early indicators may suggest that some drivers may end up relying too heavily on this feature. So increased premiums anyone?

ProPilot 2 is a big selling point for me and I’ve been worried that it won’t live up to expectations. This review has been more assuring. I still question whether Nissan is committed to making continued improvements over time through OTA updates. I worry they won’t upgrade existing cars even if they have the hardware so as to push people to buy the latest model. I wouldn’t mind paying $20/month as long as I see continued improvement and features over time.

That is an interesting article as FWIW good hands on (or off) driving assistance was at the top of the list of features I was looking for when choosing a new car. I have been driving a Hyundai Ioniiq for the past three years and that has a virtually flawless hands on system. The adaptive cruise control works on all roads but lane control only works on motorways and A roads in Scotland as they have a white line marking the edge on the road. This and the center lane markings are needed to keep the car in the lane and it will go round quite sharp bends without problems. It sounds like it might be better than the Tesla system but not as good as Pro-Pilot as it will re-engage itself if you accelerate but more often or not you need to press a switch on the steering wheel if you have braked.

I am not sure if all grades of car will benefit from any firmware upgrades to hands off but I ordered the Tech Pack just in case the Heads Up display is required. Anyway, I'm not sure how much I would feel comfortable driving fully hands off. I'm able to do that now using a simple dodge to fool the car but rarely do it despite it never having misbehaved in thousands of miles of motorway driving.

So looking forward to getting the Ariya :)

Welcome to the forum! How did you spec your Ariya?

Just got the smaller battery and Advance Grade with Tech pack and Sunroof and the Green colour which was free!! We were lucky as there was a brand new green car just arrived from the factory and it really was an amazing colour - nearly black but with green lustre in the sun. Would never have ordered it without having seen it and it is a refreshing change to have another colour other than white as the no-charge option :)

Hey @8thDay, thanks for sharing your experience with the Ioniq 5. Are you going to keep it along with the Ariya? Or will the Ariya replace it?

Hi Chris
This is not the Ioniq 5 but the facelift of the original Ioniq. We would love to keep the Ioniq as we really need a second car and it would be hard to go back to fossil fuels but it it will be a stretch financially. I guess when it comes to it we will find a way somehow !
