Following public calls for the return of a desert-driving favourite, Nissan today announced the rebirth of its much-loved Patrol Super Safari in the Middle East, one of the most coveted off-road vehicles ever sold in the region.
“The return of the legendary Patrol Super Safari reflects Nissan’s willingness not only to listen to its regional customers, but to also respond to their wishes,” said Samir Cherfan, the managing director of Nissan Middle East. “The Patrol Super Safari’s return is the direct result of customer demand for this legendary vehicle which has a strong heritage with the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula.”
The 2017 Patrol Super Safari features new driver aids include a navigation system as well as front and rear parking sensors with rear view camera. It has a 4.8 litre DOHC in-line 6-cylinder engine producing 280hp mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission with manual mode. “We know this vehicle will appeal to many customers who have grown up with the Super Safari brand, and as new generations come to know the Patrol Super Safari, they too will appreciate its legendary capability and appreciate its deep-rooted heritage in the region’s culture,” Mr Cherfan said.
