It is safe to say that the UAE is the unofficial capital of supercars in the world. From the most expensive Bugatti to Lamborghini, the country has its own share of fancy expensive cars that are spotted on the streets very often. In the paradise of some of the best cars in the world, there is no secret that car manufacturers have invested plenty of shares in the automobile industry of the UAE.
A recent study by Dubai Statistics Center has indicated that on average, every family in UAE owns two cars. This indicates the consumer’s interest in owning a car, which is why the UAE has one of the highest car selling rates in the region.
According to the latest statistics, here are the 8 top-selling cars in UAE:
- Toyota Camry
Toyota is one of the biggest automobile companies all around the world and the top-selling brand in Asia and the Middle East. According to the statistics, Toyota Camry is the bestselling car all across the UAE. Equipped with advanced features and safety parameters at an affordable price which an average salary person can afford in UAE is what makes Toyota Camry the consumer’s favorite car. Toyota releases three different models of Camry each year in UAE with a little variation in the specifications and price to cater to a wide range of customers and their preferences.
- Toyota Corolla
The popularity of Toyota in the UAE doesn’t end with Camry. Toyota Corolla is the second top-selling car in the country. Being a subcomponent of the compact car line manufactured by Toyota, the reasons for its high selling rate in UAE are similar to that of Camry. It is the perfect saloon car with good looks, advanced features, good fuel economy, interior space, and reliability. Just like Camry, Toyota Corolla also comes in three different models with slight differences with each other. It is the perfect family car in the UAE.
- Mitsubishi Pajero
One of the most favorite off-road 4×4 drives in UAE is Mitsubishi Pajero. The car strikes a perfect balance between good fuel economy and high-end off-road specifications, which makes it apt for the rugged terrain of UAE. Mitsubishi Pajero has a 3.5 liter V6 engine which makes it capable of dune driving and mountain driving in the UAE. Along with a spacious cabin and boot space, the car comes with power steering and automatic and manual both kinds of gear combinations.
- Nissan Altima
Considered as an economic luxury saloon car, the Nissan Altima sits at the fourth bestselling spot in UAE. Having elegant exteriors and strong motor power, Nissan Altima is a tough competitor to the middle-sized saloon cars manufactured from Toyota in UAE’s automobile market.

People in UAE who love a stylish looking saloon car with high power and specifications tend to buy Nissan Altima.
- Hyundai Elantra
Technically a sedan car but categorized as a sports car, Hyundai Elantra is another famous car in UAE that can be seen on the roads very often.

Priced at mid-range on the price sheet, Hyundai Elantra can be easily afforded by an average salaried person in UAE, which adds more to its popularity.
- Nissan Patrol
When it comes to elegant and stylish four wheel drive in UAE, Nissan Patrol is the first choice of the consumers. Nissan Patrol offers a more complete package than Mitsubishi Pajero in terms of strong off-road capabilities, spacious interiors and comfort while off-roading. The adventure car boosts quite commendable fuel efficiency considering it has a 5.6 liter V8 engine. The integration of an advanced HBMC system in the car acts as a shock absorber and stabilizer that enhances the overall comfort of the car while off-roading.
- BMW X5
When it comes to ultra-luxury cars in UAE, BMW tops the list of being the consumers’ favorite. BMW X5 is a sporty car with a proven track record of high performance and comfort. Another reason which makes it quite popular in the UAE’s automobile industry is the fact that it is more affordable than other luxury cars in the country. BMS X5 is powered by an Intercooled Turbo Premium Unleaded I-6, 3.0 liter engine which offers very high-speed driving capability. While luxury cars like the BMW X5 lack adventure driving abilities, they surely make up for it with elegance and style.
- Mercedes E-Class
The topmost luxury car in this list, the Mercedes E-Class is quite a popular car in UAE, mainly in Dubai as it combines both class and high specifications of comfortable driving experience. The most common Mercedes E-class car in UAE is the base model Mercedes E200 which has a turbocharged 2.0 liter, four-cylinder engine with 185 HP.
