When it comes to driving the crowded cities and open roads of the UAE, sports utility vehicles make life much, much easier.
Not only do SUVs pack independent suspension, should you get caught in a sandbank, but many models really live up to the sports name — looking as sleek and stylish as an Italian convertible, but with the sturdiness of a Japanese 4×4.
If you’re looking for the best SUV in Dubai, then these 8 models are a great place to start…
1. Nissan X-Trail
If you need space for all the family, you should definitely consider the Nissan X-Trail, which can accommodate 7 seats in total.
With a great overall design, and off-roading capabilities as good as the best SUVs in Dubai, this Nissan model feels like a Discovery Sport, but comes at a much lower price.
2. Mazda CX-5
If space isn’t a big factor for you, you could do a lot worse than the Mazda CX-5.
It’s ultra sporty and seriously fun to drive, thanks to its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission.
3. Renault Duster
Technically a ‘compact SUV’, don’t let the size fool you — this car has advanced X-tronic CVT gearshift, so it’s ready for any terrain.
The most recent model is also a lot quieter than previous iterations, so the Duster’s just as good in the inner city as tearing up the desert trails.
4. Nissan Kicks
Highly fuel efficient, thanks to its size, the Nissan Kicks is also a really comfortable ride.
More suited to towns and cities than big winding roads, it’s a very decent choice of SUV in Dubai.
5. Renault Koleos
What the Renault Koleos lacks in seating, it makes up for it internal space.
Where other models on our ‘best SUVs in Dubai’ list have the option for 7 seats, this Renault caps at 5. But that’s no issue if you’re driving alone, or with your partner. Indeed, there’d still be plenty of room for a couple of passengers, too.
Even better: all doors fully cover the sills, so you won’t get your trousers dirty when you’re stepping in or out from any dusty surroundings.
6. Nissan Pathfinder
The Pathfinder lands in the midsize SUV category, but is capable of pushing the speedometer when it needs to!
With 284 horsepower, you may be surprised at how fast this car is, especially for its size.
As with the Nissan X-trail, there’s space for 7 to sit — so road-trips are calling!
7. Infiniti QX50
If luxury is what you’re after, then the Infiniti QX50 is the best SUV in Dubai for you.
With super plush interiors and a smooth driving experience — even over rough ground — the QX50 delivers everything you’re after in a top-quality SUV.
8. Kia Sportage
The Kia Sportage is a solid option for drivers looking for all-round quality.
Offering 4-wheel and all-wheel drive, it’ll handle any road surface in the UAE with ease.
But the best SUVs in Dubai all come at a price — unless you know where to look…
You don’t get something for nothing.
And that’s especially true when it comes to SUVs, with some of the best SUV models in Dubai costing as much as AED 162,000.
At Invygo, we’ve got each and every one of these SUVs. Even better: they are all available at a straight-up, affordable monthly price starting from AED 1375.
