So we bought a 2009 Mercedes-Benz S550 Lorinser

2009-Mercedes-Benz-S550-Lorinser-in-the-UAE-1-600x450 So we bought a 2009 Mercedes-Benz S550 Lorinser  Let us get this straight — we didn’t intend to buy a Mercedes-Benz of any sort. Aside from a couple of AMG models, Mercedes-Benz is mostly the default choice of brand-biased individuals who grew up listening to their parents wax lyrical about how they aspire to own a car with a three-pointed star on the bonnet.

2017-Volkswagen-Beetle-R-Line-in-the-UAE-1-600x450 So we got a 2017 Volkswagen Beetle R-Line  The second generation of the “new” Volkswagen Beetle is a much more interesting car than the one before it, but it’s struggling to make headway in our GTI-loving market. Read More >>

2017-Nissan-Patrol-Nismo-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Nissan Patrol Nismo  It’s been about a year since the Nismo version of the Patrol took the UAE by storm. A sporty version of a legendary body-on-frame offroader? Read More >>

So we got a 2017 GMC Acadia Denali

2017-GMC-Acadia-Denali-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 GMC Acadia Denali  The previous GMC Acadia was an odd one. Essentially a minivan in functionality, but disguised as an SUV, the Acadia was actually more practical and spacious inside than the Yukon. Read More >>

2017-MG-GS-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 MG GS 4WD  Morris Garages, the well-known (in Europe at least) British brand that’s best known for making little sports cars back in the day and hopped-up Rover-based sedans most recently before they shut shop. Read More >>

2017-Toyota-Fortuner-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Toyota Fortuner  When the all-new Toyota Fortuner debuted a year ago, it created waves with its new-age styling that still somehow looked like a tough offroader (unless, say, the poor attempt that is the new Land Rover Discovery). Read More >>

2017-Ford-Edge-Sport-600x450 So we got a 2017 Ford Edge Sport  The Ford Edge Sport has been around since late last year, as the top dog in the redesigned Edge line-up. While we did drive the regular Edge Titanium in Jordan in 2016, the Sport is an entirely different beast. Read More >>

So we got a 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR

2017-Jaguar-F-Type-SVR-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR  If you look beyond the hype, the Jaguar F-Type isn’t anything ground-breaking when it comes to sports cars. Based off of a decade-old chassis with carryover engines, its claim to fame was always the noise rather than the dynamics, at least when compared to various rivals. Read More >>

So we got a 2017 Geely Emgrand X7 Sport

2017-Geely-Emgrand-X7-Sport-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Geely Emgrand X7 Sport  The name doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, but then again, most car names don’t nowadays. The Geely Emgrand X7 Sport is the latest player from China to take on the Middle East crossover market. Read More >>

So we got a 2017 Skoda Octavia

2017-Skoda-Octavia-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Skoda Octavia  The Skoda Octavia is long forgotten here as a viable contender in the compact segment, but when we finally took one for a spin, we found it to be a value-packed alternative to the venerable VW Golf. Read More >>

So we got a 2017 Bentley Bentayga (video)

2017-Bentley-Bentayga-in-the-UAE-13-600x450 So we got a 2017 Bentley Bentayga (video)  We’ve been following the development of the Bentley Bentayga quite closely.
