Having let go of our Range Rover, we were on the look-out for a three-row SUV that could fit up to 7 people. Requirements change, and now that my second child was born a month ago, I’d have run out of space once my parents come to stay with us for babysitting duties. Car-shopping is easily one of the most awful processes you can go through, especially when it comes to used cars. However, the bigger story is why we bought this 2014 Nissan Patrol LE — with zero mileage and a full dealer warranty!
It’s been a busy month in the UAE as the Abu Dhabi Infiniti dealer opened a new showroom, the F1 in Schools programme had their finals, and the Dubai dealer for Nissan held a public launch for the new Maxima.
Arabian Automobiles, the exclusive dealer for Nissan in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, has been awarded the Global Award and World Aftersales Award for Best Performance by Nissan.
One of our readers caught this body-kitted 2014 Nissan Tiida at the Dubai showroom of Arabian Automobiles. The kit is now an optional extra, in case you are into that sort of thing.
Arabian Automobiles, one of the UAE’s Nissan dealers, has announced the arrival of the 2014 Nissan Patrol Pickup with an optional accessory package that will only be offered by them.
The 2014 Nissan Patrol had its official launch in the UAE, with an event in Ras Al Khaimah. The facelifted model isn’t far removed from the outgoing version, and as such retains its offroad capabilities.
News round-up: Nissan UAE aftersales, Valvoline oil launch, Porsche GT3 Cup & Bridgestone air-free tyres
This week’s motoring news round-up includes one of Nissan’s UAE dealers winning an aftersales service award, Valvoline launching a GCC-spec engine oil, the Porsche GT3’s Dubai race conclusion, and Bridgestone’s new air-free tyre.
Nissan’s UAE dealer, Arabian Automobiles, reports that sales of the Nissan 370Z have increased by “750%” after its “repositioning” in the market this year in terms of price. That’s basically a roundabout way of admitting they had overpriced the car to Porsche Cayman levels for the past several years, and have now brought it down to realistic levels after following the Toyota 86’s lead.
The fifth Xplore UAE, an annual off-road event organised by local Nissan dealer Arabian Automobiles in association with ENOC Lubricants, clinched the Guinness World Record title for the longest desert convoy of off-road vehicles. The March event, which attracted the largest number of participants in its history, also raised Dhs 50,000 for the Rashid Paediatric Therapy Centre.
Arabian Automobiles, part of the AW Rostamani group and the exclusive dealer of Nissan, Infiniti and Renault in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, has launched a massively-expanded vehicle servicing centre at its existing Ras Al Khor facility which will be open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
