issan launched the new Patrol Super Safari, an SUV designed for those who like serious offroading and Gulf Insider had the chance to try it out. It’s a fun, solid car to drive. The only complaint we had was that we wish we could take it to more rugged terrain because it would have been more satisfying to drive it through a tougher course.
The Super Safari comes with “Super Safari” body decals, dual-tone colors, flared fenders, a rear spoiler and distinctive 17-inch black alloy wheels, whilst the interior is of tan leather with electrically adjustable front seats, automatic climate control, a refrigerated cool box, Bluetooth, USB, AUX, navigation system, and reversing camera. It’s powered by a 4.8 liter DOHC inline six-cylinder engine, generating 451 NM of torque, mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission.
Nissan wants to bring in a new standard for offroad performance called Desert Camel Power (DCP) to indicate the ‘desert power’ of a vehicle in the same way that ‘horse power’ indicates a car’s road speed ability but is not really indicative of what it can do on sand. DCP is a scientifically proven formula to determine how a given vehicle will perform in the desert with live camels and a Nissan Super Safari showing off the methodology used.
DCP will soon be used in all Nissan Middle East Showrooms and marketing literature to define the desert capabilities of Nissan’s SUV line-up, of which the iconic Patrol Super Safari is part.
Nissan Patrol Super Safari will soon be available in Bahrain.
