Nissan Patrol goes sand dune bashing in Dubai for #NissanSUVHeritageSeptember 16, 2018
Nissan is gearing up to revamp their Indian portfolio in 2019 and though the first launch will be the Kicks SUV, the company will be looking at bringing in other SUVs like the X-Trail, Pathfinder and the big daddy Patrol. Indian journalists were invited to Dubai to drive all these four SUVs and we have access to the Patrol pictures now.
The Sand dune bashing took place an hour away from Dubai and for this, lucky ones got to drive the Patrol SUV. This one is the V8 version with a 5.5-litre unit under the hood. When it comes to India, it will be lock arms with the Toyota Landcruiser – dont expect sharp looks or agile handing, this one is all about road presence and comfort.
A convoy of Landcruisers went around the dunes as visible here and we simply love the way this badass SUV look on such terrains. Along with the GTR, the Patrol could also be a halo product for Nissan and will up their brand identity in India : we sure celebs and known faces will not mind buying a few pieces each year. Enjoy the pictures!
