When we asked for an Infiniti M as a long-term car, it was unavailable, but Nissan Middle East offered us a QX56 instead, for a month. We hadn’t driven either the Nissan Patrol nor its sistership Infiniti QX56 yet, so we jumped at the chance.
Al-Futtaim Motors, the exclusive distributor for Toyota, the UAE market leading automotive brand, has launched its biggest ever Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) promotion in addition to an existing New Year promotion that already offers incredibly competitive monthly repayments across its entire model line up.
Few cars we test ever attract an obscene amount of attention from bystanders. But that’d require something like a Challenger or a CTS-V Coupe. So it may be a bit of a surprise that our 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee caused such a ruckus everywhere it was parked.
Ferrari has broken tradition and made their first ever four-wheel-drive “thing”, the FF, short for Ferrari Four. Or it could stand for Ferrari Ferrari Four. Or it could mean Ferrari Front-engine Front-wheel-drive, as per the common meaning of the “FF” term. One thing is for sure, and that is it will replace the stunning 612 Scaglietti. The 2012 Ferrari FF will debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Mitsubishi Motors will give the world a peek of the Mitsubishi Concept Global Small, a concept sub-compact car, at the 2011 Geneva International Motor Show.
Late last year, on the sidelines of the Mitsubishi ASX crossover launch event at the Dubai Autodrome, Mitsubishi had an egg on four wheels parked outside the halls, plugged into the wall like a blender. We quickly recognised that to be the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, the Japanese firm’s first commercially-available electric car.
The first auto show of the year is also one of the largest in the world. Of course, thanks to the economic downturn, the showing this year is a bit less than in previous years. However, there are a fair number of anticipated models, such as the extended Toyota Prius V, the near-production Honda Civic concept, the production Chevrolet Sonic, the revamped Chrysler 300C, the facelifted Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the topless BMW 6-Series and the achingly-beautiful Volkswagen Passat.
It’s a busy world. People are in a race with time to be as ahead as possible in every aspect they can think of. There is hardly any time for anyone; and given the situation, people want the best in life; by saying best in life, I mean whatever that can make life easier and to be at ease. And such things include, for an instance, mobile phones which are capable of replacing one’s alarm clock, calendar, organizer, netbook, music players, video players, navigation systems and what not, besides serving the basic purpose of a phone and thus eliminating the need of having so many things at a time.
