Sleek and stylish are the name of the game when it comes to most crossover EVs on the market. But two newcomers are bringing aggressive styling and performance into the conversation, and they're doing it with style and class. The 2023 Nissan Ariya and the 2023 Toyota BZ4X are two of the most hotly anticipated crossover EVs coming to the lots across the North Tampa area soon. But which one of these powerful electric driving machines is best for you?
That's exactly what we wanted to look at today with this shocking street fight between the 2023 Nissan Ariya and the 2023 Toyota BZ4X. After all, buying an EV isn't just about cutting out the crazy high gas prices. Instead, it's become more about driving performance, interior styling, and creature comforts. And these two crossover EVs are two of the best, but which wins in this head-to-head? Let's find out.
At first glance, both of these aggressively styled crossover EVs look like they're more sports-inspired design and driving than environmentally friendly driving experience. So today, we're going to dive into the differences between the two with a comprehensive head-to-head fight until a clear winner is crowned. And when the 2023 Nissan Ariya is the clear-cut winner between these two crossover EVs, be sure to come down to the showroom at Maus Nissan of Crystal River to take one for a spin!
Would the best crossover EV please stand up?!
The 2023 Nissan Ariya comes with four model options along with different ranges. All of them are powered by the same available 87.0 kWh battery pack. If you choose the Venture model, you'll love the long 300-mile range. For the Evolve and Premiere models, you can expect to get up to 285 miles on a single charge. And for the ultimate in performance with the AWD Platinum model, you'll have to exchange precision and performance for range with only up to 265 miles on a single charge.
Again, the Toyota BZ4X comes up short with only a 64.0 kWh battery pack that delivers up to 250 miles on a single charge. Now, that's for the standard front-wheel-drive model. However, Toyota has yet to release what is expected to be a shorter range on the dual-motor all-wheel-drive option.
The bottom line is that there is no real comparison between these two crossover EVs. While they both look sleek and stylish, all the performance and safety features you want are only found in the 2023 Nissan Ariya. Here's a quick breakdown of the ways the Ariya beats the BZ4X:
