| Category: General

The Nissan ARIYA has clinched the title of the UK’s Best Car for Long Distances at the AutoTrader New Car Awards 2024, outpacing the Volvo XC60 and BMW iX3. Unlike other automotive awards, the winners of the AutoTrader New Car Awards are determined by the most crucial critics: car owners themselves.

Over 200,000 UK car owners participated in an online survey, sharing their real-world experiences and opinions, which formed the basis for determining the winners. This year’s recognition for the Nissan ARIYA is a testament to its growing list of accolades, highlighting its impressive range and performance.

The all-electric coupe crossover, capable of up to 330 miles on a single charge, has already been recognized by several prestigious organizations, including the Caravan and Motorhome Club, Company Car & Van, and The Car Expert. The ARIYA also holds a previous title from Auto Express as Car of the Year.

Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s Editorial Director, praised the ARIYA, stating, “With its long range, comfort, and sleek looks, it’s no wonder the Nissan ARIYA is the car of choice for those travelling long distances. Owners love how cost-efficient it is to run, and its features and technology make driving long distances a breeze.” One satisfied owner remarked, “It’s a comfortable long-distance cruiser. Excellent performance and cheap to run. Very environmentally friendly. Can’t fault it.”

Nissan GB Marketing Director, Fiona Mackay, expressed her delight at the ARIYA's recognition, saying, “It’s particularly pleasing because this accolade is based on the real-world opinions of ARIYA owners from across the UK. It will help dispel any remaining myths that electric vehicles are suitable for short journeys only.”

The ARIYA, a stylish and fully electrified crossover, offers the practicality of a versatile SUV combined with the comfort and styling of a premium city car. Mackay emphasized, “Aside from its long-distance cruising credentials, ARIYA has so much to offer. We’re incredibly proud of it and, as I say, thrilled to have won this Auto Trader award.”

Participants in the AutoTrader survey rated their cars across 16 categories, including reliability, performance, appearance, and running costs. They also shared their overall satisfaction and likelihood to recommend their vehicles to others.

Erin Baker highlighted the uniqueness of the awards, stating, “The Auto Trader New Car Awards set out to achieve something different than other awards, and that is to recognize the brands and cars that are achieving excellence in the eyes of real-world car owners, not just industry experts. The awards are now in their eighth year and in 2024 we saw over 200,000 car owners telling us exactly how they feel about their cars, making them the most accurate indicator of consumer opinion. Many congratulations to all of this year’s winners and finalists.”
