Everyone knows that Dubai’s car fleet is one of the most expensive on the planet. Even the police in this country drive supercars. But in fact, the vast majority of the United Arab Emirates population doesn’t drive multi-billion dollar cars.
Six years ago, the most popular car in the Emirates was the Mitsubishi Lancer: in 2015 alone, the dealer sold about 27.5 thousand models. Let’s see, what cars bask in popularity in the UAE market today.
1. Toyota Corolla
Toyota is perhaps one of the most popular brands in the Emirates. And the Corolla is widely seen on the road. The thing is that the car shows amazing efficiency: it’s equipped with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (by the way, there are also hybrid models with an electric motor), light-alloy wheels, adaptive LED optics, and parking sensors.
Toyota’s design is beyond praise: the sedan’s representative outlook is emphasized by a massive radiator grille, voluminous fenders, and a low sporty silhouette. The salon has a minimalistic design – it is modern, laconic, with improved ergonomics and high-quality finishing materials. Everything that is appreciated in the Emirates.
2. Mercedes Benz E-class
Mercedes is a trusted brand known for its style, safety, and cutting-edge tech. Mercedes of any class is used in the country everywhere, even in Chauffeur Service In Dubai.
The E-Class is a mix of traditional luxury and modern performance that every driver in Dubai needs. However, the car remains practical and simple in life: it can easily take a company of four or five people and a lot of their things: the 540-liter trunk provides ample room for daily shopping and vacation bags.
3. Mitsubishi Pajero
Mitsubishi Pajero shows the perfect balance between an economical city car and a powerful SUV, perfect for the desert dunes of Dubai.
It has a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and all-wheel drive function. The off-road features of this car made Pajero win the Dakar Rally 12 times.
4. Nissan Patrol
Nissan Patrol is the same Japanese legend as Land Cruiser or Pajero. Drivers fell in love with the third generation of this car in the early 1980s but it still can be found in Siberia or the deserts. Today, the Patrol is a solid SUV that has earned its popularity among respected and reputable Dubai buyers.
The 2020 Nissan Patrol is available with a 4.0-liter V6 with 275 hp. or 5.6 liters V8 with 400 hp.
5. BMW X5
BMW X5 is the first full-fledged SUV in BMW’s long history. Thanks to the impressive clearance, permanent all-wheel drive, and independent suspension of all wheels, the car is perfect for off-road driving.
The design of the BMW X5 is bright and respectable with the comfort and luxury cabin. The decoration uses a lot of leather and natural wood inserts.
The BMW X5 is equipped with an intercooler 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that gives the owner an unforgettable experience of high speeds and exceptional driving dynamics.
Based on the list, it becomes obvious that the residents of the UAE adore Japanese-made cars, and especially SUVs. 19 of the 20 most popular cars in the state bear the logos of Japanese brands such as Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Lexus. The only non-Japanese car that is in demand is the BMW X5. But still, all these cars are a guarantor of quality, convenience, and comfort, and not a luxurious life for the show.
