Doha-Qatar, 22 February 2020: Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co., the exclusive agent of Nissan in Qatar, held a desert event on Friday February 7 to offer Nissan Patrol customers and VIP guests a test drive like no other.

This exceptional event brought customers, VIPs, Sports TV personality, Khaled Jasim, social media influencer Mohamed Rashed Al Sulaiti and other media representatives together led by the international Qatari rally champion, Adel Hussein Abdulla to learn more about the new Nissan Patrol 2020 – the legendary 4WD SUV that allows drivers to conquer the toughest off-road conditions.
Speaking at the event, Mr. Nassim Mourani General Manager – Automotive Group, Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co., said: “Today was a truly immersive experience, enabling customers to test drive the new Nissan Patrol 2020 and discover it’s power to perform in the desert terrain. Customers experienced the Patrol’s hydraulic body motion control which delivers superb stability and other Nissan Intelligent Mobility features such as intelligent 4X4 which ensured they maintained momentum on the desert dunes. It has been a fun day of driving and, more importantly, learning about off-road safety awareness. A special thanks to champion rally driver Adel Hussein Abdulla for his expert briefing, which steered drivers towards the Patrol’s key safety features. Customer safety has always been our top priority, and events such as these help us to create greater awareness of the care and attention that needs to be taken while driving in tougher terrain.”
Adel Abdullah guided guests through the Patrol 2020’s impressive technology and advanced safety features. He also invited media onboard his rally-winning Nissan Patrol to co-pilot his exhilarating desert dune drive, demonstrating the vehicle’s high performance and durability. Once briefed on how to safely tackle the dunes, customers were able to test out the prowess of the Nissan Patrol 2020 for themselves. Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co. provided 20 Nissan Patrol 2020 vehicles for customers to explore the vehicle’s unmatched power and Intelligent Mobility features that enables motorists to drive with confidence.
Praising the Nissan Patrol 2020, Adel Hussein Abdullah commented, “I’m always keen to demonstrate the features and capabilities of the Nissan Patrol. I have a special affinity with the brand and the Patrol as it’s seen me win rally titles locally and abroad – it’s an all-terrain SUV that can handle any adventure. However, what’s most important is ensuring that motorists are fully utilizing the Patrol’s safety features and are aware of how to handle varying road surfaces, including the slippery slopes of the desert. The dunes are a place for locals and residents to enjoy a tougher driving challenge – and now thanks to Nissan, they are equipped with the knowledge they need to drive on sharp inclines and soft sand.”
