The relaunched Patrol Super Safari five-door went down rather well with off-road fans and Nissan is again responding to demands of the Gulf’s four-wheel drive loving motorists by offering a three-door version of the Patrol Super Safari.

It is packed with features designed with comfort, practicality, style, and desert performance in mind. It features machine cut, black 17in wheels framed by grey over fenders and eye-catching red Super Safari graphics. There are two colour choices for the body, two-tone combinations of either grey and white or grey and gold, while inside an attractive tan interior is equally the sole option. There is just one engine option — the 4.8-litre inline-six cylinder DOHC unit which produces 280 horses and 451Nm of torque and is mated to a five-speed automatic.

New driver aids include a navigation system as well as front and rear parking sensors with rear view camera, Bluetooth, USB, CD, auxiliary input socket and FM/AM radio to complete the in-car entertainment offering.

“When we relaunched the Patrol Super Safari station wagon in March it was as a response to the demands of our customers who had both a deep sense of nostalgia for the vehicle and a genuine appetite to see its return,” explained Fadi Ghosn, chief marketing officer of Nissan Middle East. “We quickly realised after the relaunch, however, that there was equally an appetite to see the return of the three-door variant.”
