While many of our fellow Filipinos back home might think of the Middle East as a land of deserts and sands, OFWs have grown accustomed to the busy city life, especially in Dubai.
This is why out-of-town road trips are popular among Filipinos and tourists so that they can enjoy a ride away from the bustling cityscapes and skyscrapers.
Among the scenic desert routes available in the country is Liwa located in Abu Dhabi. Filipino travelers who wish to visit the UAE’s huge sand dunes can now explore it safely through their preferred mode of transportation, such as the Toyota C-HR.
With passenger safety as its main priority, the Toyota C-HR helps motorists in the UAE traverse through the country’s tourist destinations and enjoy long drives with their loved ones as well.
Here are some of the Toyota C-HR’s features that highlight both convenience and safety for its users:
Superior Safety Technology. The TNGA-based chassis has been optimized for outstanding impact performance and is complemented by an impressive array of active and passive safety features including Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Tire Pressure Warning System (TPWS), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and many others.
Low Fuel Consumption. The all-new C-HR HEV comes with all the benefits expected of the world’s most proven and advanced hybrid-electric technology, yet drives like any other conventional car, offering remarkable fuel efficiency at 23.9 km/L with zero compromise on performance delivering a combined 121hp. The hybrid-electric powertrain is equipped with a small, light, and powerful lithium-ion battery pack that can efficiently absorb and deliver current, enhancing the electric motive force delivery.
Toyota has more than two decades of technical leadership in electrified vehicles and has amassed over 15 million environmentally friendly vehicle sales globally since 1997. The all-new C-HR can run entirely on electrical power with zero-fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions or through the combined power of its petrol engine and two electric motors, subject to the vehicle’s speed and driver behavior. Its hybrid-electric batteries are continuously charged by the petrol engine and when decelerating and braking, meaning there is no need to plug in a power cord. The all-new C-HR features a host of advanced technologies, yet drives like any other conventional vehicle and does not require special fuel.
Smooth drive. The new model also offers exceptional cabin quietness and smooth power delivery, especially when accelerating from a stand-still.
Filipinos can purchase their very own Toyota C-HR and select from other car makes and models through the official Toyota website in the UAE BY Al-Futtaim Motors. Al-Futtaim Motors is a member of the Al-Futtaim Group, the leading UAE business conglomerate. It has operated the Toyota franchise in the United Arab Emirates for almost 6 decades.
Al-Futtaim Motors-Toyota started its operation in 1955 with the arrival of the first shipment of 28 Land Cruisers and Toyopets from Japan. It has since become the largest distributor of automobiles and automotive products in the UAE and the company has gone from strength to strength expanding its presence through a network of high profile Toyota showrooms and service centres providing convenient touch points for motorists in every corner of the UAE.
