Aesthetic and technological upgrades complement visual identity and luxury of the legendary SUV
Building on the success of the legendary Patrol Super Safari, Nissan announces aesthetic and technological upgrades for the 2022 model to cater to the evolving needs of buyers in the region. Conquering the harshest of terrain for almost seventy years, the Patrol has built a legacy in the Middle East, composed of a deep-rooted heritage, power, and superior off-road capability.
The rugged appeal of the Patrol Super Safari is available with a choice of three bold exterior colours – black, white, or gold – with a unique choice of grey or gold accents across the roof, bumpers, wheel arches, and spare tyre cover for drivers to create a combination of their choice. The striking ‘Super Safari’ decal along the side of the car is complemented by a bold set of 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels that contribute to the SUV’s head-turning presence.
Inside, drivers can opt to have the cabin with PVC, woven fabric, or tan leather seats, with the latter adding a unique touch through a special Super Safari emboss. In addition to 2 DIN display audio system with smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay, drivers also benefit from a newly installed wireless charger for added comfort and convenience.
Thierry Sabbagh, Managing Director, Nissan Middle East said: “The region’s sustained love and demand for the Patrol Super Safari is reflective of the deep-rooted heritage of this all-terrain vehicle with the people of the Middle East and its compatibility with the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula. The 2022 model retains the Super Safari’s off-road prowess, offering customers in the Middle East value and convenience through the integration of innovative design and technological elements.”
Naseem Mourani General Manager of Automotive Group at Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Company, the Exclusive Agent of Nissan in Qatar said: “Nissan Patrol Super Safari has a deep-rooted legacy in Qatar and the most admirable vehicle for adventurers. It is the hero of all terrains that beats the toughest conditions. The Patrol Super Safari has always been, and still, the companion of off-raod enthusiasts which never let them down.Nissan continues to upgrade this model to the highest levels to meet the expectations of the new generation of drivers and enhance its leading position in the SUV segment.
Thrilling performance is provided by a 4.8-liter in-line six-cylinder engine that produces 280 horsepower and 451 Nm of torque. Equipped with VTC and NICS, in addition to a 5-speed automatic or manual transmission, the Patrol Super Safari offers exceptional off-road performance and impressive top speed on the highway. A straight-line drive transfer and rear differential lock further the Patrol’s performance and allow it to explore places where other SUVs don’t dare to go.
Built for adventure, the Patrol Super Safari’s higher angle of stability, improved gradeability, and the larger approach, departure, and ramp-clearance angles, are all furthered by a heavy-duty coil spring suspension, incorporating telescopic shock absorbers and torsion bar, for confident handling on all terrain.
In addition to electronically controlled power steering that ensures effortless control at low speeds and firm handling at high speeds, the Patrol Super Safari is equipped with a host of Nissan Intelligent Mobility features for a safer and more connected driving experience. This includes cruise control, a tire pressure monitoring system, ABS, dual-front SRS airbags, and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) that prevents understeer and oversteer by reducing engine speed and applying the brakes individually on specific wheels when entering or exiting a corner.
Nissan Super Safari is the most acknowledged SUV vehicle by Nissan. Launched in 1951 in Japan, the Patrol accomplished huge success across the world, especially in the Arab region and Qatar. The slogan of Nissan Patrol, ‘The Hero of All Terrains”, reflects its high performance, durability and endurance to overcome all weather and road conditions. Thanks to these features, the Nissan Patrol fans proved their loyalty to the vehicle and acquired it through the generations.
The 2022 Patrol Super Safari is now available at Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co. in Qatar, at its showrooms at Salwa Road, Al Sadd, Bin Omran, and Al Khor.
