We drove the updated 2020 Nissan Patrol around the UAE and found out what has changed, and whether the positive traits of the old one has been retained.
Fiat-Chrysler has a notorious reputation when it comes to reliability and build quality. But right off the bat, we’ll be the first ones to say that we highly recommend the Chrysler 300/Dodge Charger twins, and everyone who bought one after reading our reviews are very content. We’ve had our Chrysler 300 SRT for almost 3 years now. The car has been mechanically and electrically reliable for the most part, except for one nagging issue that no amount of warranty work is solving — the same small bits of interior trim keep falling off, again and again, twice every summer.
Renamed but little changed since it first launched 40 years ago, Lada’s legacy model remains the brand’s defining model as it makes a comeback to Middle East markets. Formerly known as the Niva, the diminutive Lada 4×4 is both precursor to the crossover segment and a highly capable off-roader. With uni-body construction, rugged four-wheel-drive, and coil spring double wishbone and live axle suspension, it was designed as an affordable people’s car for city streets and rugged rural Russian winters alike.
The 1960s and 70s are revered to be the ultimate era or car design. Many cars from this era have gone on to become classics. In this modern age, many companies have made modern interpretations of classic cars, including the Stinger 911 and the Eagle Speedster. Doing it a bit differently, Backdraft Racing is an American manufacturer who has specialised in creating modern-day replicas of the legendary Shelby Cobra. It is now available in the UAE, with Nostalgia Classic Cars serving as its dealer principal for Dubai and the Gulf region.
As a part of expanding their lineup, Ferrari revealed a new model named after the capital of Italy. The Ferrari Roma, as it’s called, is a V8 two-seater coupe that flaunts styling which is a departure from the design of most modern Ferraris, yet ends up looking the most generic and derivative.
With the launch of the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S, it was clear that Porsche is adopting a top-down approach for the launch of its electric sedan. So the lower models were expected to pop up soon after the launch. And Porsche did not disappoint. Here is the 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S. And this may be the best model to get, because it is the cheapest and you don’t have to explain to your friends why your electric car has a Turbo badge on it.
The previous-generation Mercedes Benz GLA served as the initial stepping stone to the German giant’s overly-extensive SUV lineup that leads up to the G-Wagen (which is what you should really be saving up for, and skipping the rest). Even though it looked like a bloated hatchback than a full-on crossover and therefore never caught on here, this never deterred Euro-centric customers as the little crossover racked up more than a million sales worldwide throughout its lifetime. Now Mercedes Benz has taken the covers off the second-generation GLA, giving it more of that crossover flavour.
With dwindling market share across the world, Mitsubishi motors are on a run to update their portfolio, albeit at their own pace. As a part of this, they’ve decided finally to give their economy offerings, the Mirage and Attrage, a good facelift. The previous models had received a lot of flak for being too mundane, even for their segment. Will the facelift help them gain a better footing?
