If you’re looking for a good quality, pre-owned car in the UAE, there’s plenty of options. Are you looking for something sporty, or a practical SUV? A sleek sedan for city driving, or a hybrid that will reduce your carbon footprint and give you more economical motoring around town? At Toyota, we have a wealth of experience in providing our customers with exceptional used cars in the UAE, but to help you narrow down your choice a little, here are a few top tips to assist you in picking the right pre-owned car for you.
While you can spend hours searching the online classifieds, it’ much easier and quicker to go straight to Toyota AE. Toyotas have an exceptional reputation for reliability, performance and styling, as well as outstanding safety ratings and plenty of technology to keep everyone happy. You can buy with confidence from Toyota, knowing that every pre-owned car in our collection comes with a 12-month/30,000km warranty and a full service history. Each vehicle goes through a rigorous 99-point check carried out by professional technicians, who make sure that every pre-owned car that goes onto our forecourts is in great condition. There’s also the option of arranging finance and trading in your own car. And the best bit? You can do all this from the comfort of your couch as everything is available online.
If your family is growing rapidly, you want a used car that offers plenty of space for both people and luggage, as well as a top safety rating. We love the Toyota Rush, a slightly smaller option when compared to the Land Cruiser or RAV4, but with bags of personality, road presence, and a great little compact crossover that’s perfect for a family car. Its smaller size and nippy little engine makes it a great choice for around town as well as country adventures, with space for up to seven people.
If you want something a bit bigger then the go-to choice has to be the RAV4. If fuel consumption is a big deciding factor in your choice of crossover then the Hybrid version of this ever-popular Toyota is the best option, with a 2.5ltr engine backed up by an electric motor, as well as the E-Four system that ensures there’s no loss of 4x4 capability or performance.
If your adventures take you into more challenging territory then the obvious choice is the legendary Land Cruiser. This rugged off-roader has been tackling everything nature can throw at it for 60 years, and ticks all the right boxes if you love power and performance in equal measure, with a choice of a 4.0ltr V6, engine or a massive 5.7ltr V8 powerplant delivering 362bhp. For a smaller yet just as capable option, the Fortuner is regarded as a great all-rounder, falling into both the family-friendly category, and the adventure driver group proving just how versatile it is.
For a great driver experience and a car that tackles high-speed highways and crowded city streets with ease, Toyota sedans like the Camry and the Corolla are our top picks. The hybrid versions make city driving cheaper and more efficient, but both have powerful petrol engines to take you on longer journeys with effortless ease and in complete comfort. For an everyday car that won’t let you down, the Yaris Sedan is one of Toyota’s top selling models, delivering stylish good looks and all-round practicality. For a seriously sleek pre-owned sedan with bags of road presence, we love the Avalon, with its luxury interior and exceptional performance, thanks to a V6 engine. It’s Toyota’s flagship car in the UAE, and it’s not hard to see why – the Avalon is an exceptional car.
Toyota knows that businesses need reliable vehicles to keep the wheels turning, and delivers everything the commercial driver needs in the shape of the legendary Hilux – one of the toughest and most reliable commercial vehicles of all time. For a great multi-purpose vehicle that’s compact and adaptable (and great around town) the Avanza is a top choice with an affordable price point. For something a little larger, the Granvia can be used as a 12-seater mini bus or as the backbone of your business fitted out as a commercial vehicle.
Finally, the Toyota used car choice list wouldn’t be complete without something aspirational, sporty, and utterly gorgeous to look at, too. Step forward the magnificent Toyota Supra, one of the most successful sports cars of all time and a true ‘driver’s car’ from the top of its roof to the bottom of its alloy wheels. It’s a V8 (of course), but it has all the safety features and in-cabin technology you’ve come to expect from Toyota.
