Our Best Car for Long Distances 2024 is the Nissan Ariya, which gets the prize for its combination of long battery range, excellent comfort, high quality and distinctive looks. As one owner puts it, “it’s a comfortable long-distance cruiser [with] excellent performance and cheap to run… can’t fault it.”
With two battery options, Ariya buyers can choose to keep their costs down with a smaller 63kWh model, or go for the maximum range 87kWh version. That one offers up to 330 miles from a charge, helping make the Ariya an excellent long-distance car. Its quiet refinement at motorway speed helps, too. It’s a wonderfully tactile car to be in, thanks to high-quality flourishes like its haptic touch panel on the dashboard, and a ‘hidden’ storage drawer that emerges from the dashboard at the touch of a button. They’re the reasons why the Ariya has taken our award ahead of the super smooth Volvo XC60 and the high-tech BMW iX3. Congratulations to Nissan. Return to the Auto Trader New Car Awards Homepage
