First drive: 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser in the UAE

What you are about to read are our first impressions of the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser, based on a quick lunch-break visit to the showroom as well as a very short spin of a private car on city streets. We weren’t invited to the media launch event held in the UAE, which was seemingly attended only by “agreeable” scribes and influencers, but taking a closer look at one of the most hyped new cars to be launched in the Middle East in 2021 (after the latest Nissan Patrol Nismo earlier this year) gives us some insight on why Toyota is trying to control the messaging so tightly.

First drive: 2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI in the UAE

There have been several high-profile post-lockdown car launches that set the internet on fire. The Nissan Patrol Nismo, the Chevy Tahoe and the upcoming Ford Bronco featured prominently among them, but those were all SUVs. The only small car to “trend” is the Volkswagen Golf GTI, which shows that cars might be giving way to SUVs, but the legendary O.G. hot hatch is always going to be around.

Now on sale at the UAE dealer are two “limited-edition” variants of the Land Cruiser 70 Series – The Land Cruiser 76 and Land Cruiser 79 Overlander edition.

Product review: Cafu steam mobile car wash in Dubai UAE

Product review: Cafu steam mobile car wash in Dubai UAE

We have a confession to make. Due to lack of time and the fear of fines, we get our cars cleaned by “the guy” under our place. It’s a perfectly fine solution if you don’t care about swirl marks that are only visible from a foot away. The problem is the interior never gets cleaned.
