Nissan Ariya Testing in India
This post comes from carwaleindia on Instagram. It captures the entire visuals of the electric crossover. As is the case with the testing of most new cars, the silhouette is camouflaged. Still, the front and rear profiles, along with the side section, give away its identity to the keen-eyed observers. The rear section has sleek LED taillamps with a split setup, a roof-mounted spoiler and a sloping roofline. Other exterior bits include things like stylish alloy wheels, LED headlamps at the front with integrated LED DRLs and a large radiator grille area. I find the resemblance to the new international model quite impressive.
