When it comes to comfort when you’re cruising down SZR, it’s hard to beat a luxury 4x4. But head off the smooth tarmac and you’ll discover features that make these vehicles highly capable for discovering the desert, too. If you’re looking for a vehicle to suit your adventurous spirit, here’s our guide to the best cars for off-roading.
The Toyota Land Cruiser has long been considered one of the kings of the desert. You can’t miss these iconic 4x4s in convoy heading out for a spot of dune-bashing, and there’s a reason it’s the vehicle of choice for Dubai’s adventure companies. That’s because it can reliably tackle the desert highs and lows while still offering a comfortable ride both passengers and driver. First launched in 1951, the latest models also offer clever tech to make driving on-road just as smooth and as comfortable, too. Browse our choice of Toyota Land Cruisers.
If you want a capable 4x4 and have a larger family, then check out the Nissan Patrol. Along with the Land Cruiser, it has almost legendary status across the UAE for combining off-road conquering power with on-road comfort. Newer models feature Hill Start Assist to avoid rollback for greater control on loose surfaces like sand dunes and gravel tracks. Buy a quality used Nissan Patrol.
The Jeep Wrangler is no stranger to the desert, with a heritage that saw earlier incarnations battling across Africa in WWII. This rugged little vehicle was built for off-road adventures and is virtually unstoppable. Today, it’s had a bit of an upgrade, and features like the washable waterproof interior make hosing-out sand easy. No matter what you do at the weekend, you can keep a modern Jeep looking smart for the commute from Sunday to Thursday. And while it has retained its traditional squared-off looks, you’ll find lots of gadgets to make driving in the city a joy too. Compare deals on a Jeep Wrangler.
While the great looks of the Mercedes G-Class will turn heads at the mall, it was originally developed by Mercedes for use in the dirt. A major plus-point is the G-Wagon’s ability to keep momentum going as you can shift between high and low gear ratios without coming to a complete stop. That’s a real lifesaver if you’re encountering a tricky situation in the dunes or on a soft trail. Take a look at a used Mercedes G-Class.
Whether you want to take the family camping or enjoy the exhilaration of driving in the desert with your buddies and then cruise the city streets once you get home, with a 4x4 there are no limits. If you think you can’t afford one, it‘s time to think again. At Automall you’ll find quality pre-owned 4x4s from every brand and to suit every budget.
