UAE best selling cars ranking in the 2018 reported the same leader of the previous year, the Nissan Patrol. In second and third place the Toyota Land Cruiser and Mitsubishi Pajero.
UAE vehicles market generally performed well in Q3, despite higher oil prices pushing up the import bill. High-frequency indicators for Israel, such as the manufacturing PMI, state of the economy index and business confidence, point to a solid showing, likely driven by domestic demand.
On the political front, at the end of September the UAE approved a highly expansionary 2019 federal budget. Spending is set to rise by over 17% year-on-year, as the government takes advantage of the fiscal breathing room provided by higher crude prices.
As far as the best-selling car ranking, in the 2017 we have a new leader, the third in three-year, and after the Mitsubishi Lancer (2015) and the Toyota Land Cruiser (2016) the king of the year is the Nissan Patrol. The Japanese model in the current 6th generation is near to be replaced, but thanks to the special desert equipment maintains all its competitiveness and actually is offered at a very attractive price.
In the 2018, the Nissan Patrol leads the market with sales at 19.023 (+36.9%).
In second place the former leader, the Toyota Land Cruiser with 11.243 units (-14.8%) followed by the Mitsubishi Pajero with 10.223 sales (+56.2%).
