So my model is being sliced but it leaves empty spaces. I tried a lot but it doesn't seem to work

Even changing the angle does nothing. I am using Cura 5.2.1 but also in 5.0.0 the same issue is there

    This mesh seems faulty. You can see this in the discoloration of the model

    Have you tried doing a quick mesh fix with the Meshtools Plugin? 
    You can get it here: https://marketplace.ultimaker.com/app/cura/plugins/fieldofview/MeshTools
    If that doesn't fix it you can try a more elaborate mesh fixer like https://myminifactory.github.io/Fast-Quadric-Mesh-Simplification/. or the Make Solid feature from MeshMixer.

    This model does not seem to be made for 3D printing, but for gaming instead. 
    Where did you get the model? Was someone else able to print it?

    Have you tried fixing it in MeshMixer? 
    It's a bit extreme but it seems to be your best option:

    STL file Nissan Ariya 2020・3D print design to download・Cults (cults3d.com) I got it from here. It should be printable right?

    Oh wow, it's a paid model 😮

     

    I would really contact the seller to help you 3D print it, or help to make it watertight so it can be printed better.
