Why you should drive an SUV at least once in your life
Updated: Nov 1
When it comes to cars in Dubai, you’ll notice a few things.
There’s a lot of very expensive cars on the road. And by a lot, we mean a lot.
But another thing you’ll notice is that there’s more SUVs cruising through the emirate than perhaps anywhere else in the world.
Putting aside the relatively affordable gas prices, there’s good reason so many drivers opt for an SUV as their vehicle of choice.
At Shazza, we love a good SUV for all sorts of reasons. We also have plenty of SUVs for rent right here on Shazza.io, so if you’ve never driven one before, now is the perfect time.
When driving an SUV, here’s some of the many perks you can enjoy:
SUVs sit higher up than other cars. It gives you plenty of extra, unobstructed vision on the road which really adds to the driving experience. Take it from us, once you get up onto an SUV, getting into a car that sits lower on the ground is hard to get used to!
SUVs often come with a lot more creature comforts than your regular car. For many, plush leather seats are standard along with woodgrain finishes and so much more. You also enjoy a smoother ride due to their much better suspension and handling of bumps in the road. This isn’t an excuse to go full speed over a speed bump though!
You don’t need to ride in a Volvo to feel safe. Modern SUVs have climbed up the safety rating ladder in leaps and bounds over the years and hopping into one feels just as safe as if you were in any other type of vehicle. Due to their size, they’re also equipped with more safety features for added assurance.
When in Dubai, you know you have to venture out into the desert and onto terrain that isn’t the silky smooth roads we’re usually accustomed to. While you may think twice about roughing it up in a Nissan Micra or a Toyota Yaris (shout out to the little guys!) - but when in an SUV, it’s a no-brainer. Just hit the dunes and away you go. No worries!
And lastly, it’s just a unique experience you may never get to try anywhere else! For many people living in Dubai, driving is already something of a challenge with getting used to driving on a different side of the road to the speeds and general driving culture. Sometimes hopping into a trusty Hyundai Accent or Nissan Sunny is more than enough and choosing to drive an SUV seems like a lofty ambition.
But put those thoughts aside. At Shazza, we make renting an SUV in Dubai an easy experience that anyone can enjoy! Choose your SUV today and tell us what you think!
