The Top Car Dealerships in Dubai
Choosing the right car dealership is important to purchasing a great car, and there are some factors that sets car dealerships apart from one another.
That’s why we used the following criteria in evaluating the best car dealerships in Dubai:
1. Nissan Deira Dubai – Showroom – Arabian Automobiles LLC
Nissan Patrol Safari
|ADDRESS||Nissan Showroom, Al Ittihad Rd, Al Khabaisi, Dubai, United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 4 295 2222|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday - Sunday, 8:30 AM - 8:30 PM|
Known for their Intelligent Mobility program, Nissan’s amazing automobile technologies made them the owner of one of the best car dealerships in Dubai.
They have 14 models available, half of which you can purchase for just below AED90,000. Most of their cars come with intelligent driving and intelligent integration features, which is really cool.
We also think that the driver assistance technology present in most of their cars makes them a great option for first-time car owners. If you already have a model in mind, you can even reserve it online.
Just keep your fingers crossed that the car you want is available for test driving, since not all models can be tested out. We think that’s really a shame too, since you can only appreciate all the features of a car through a test drive.
We’ve also read some complaints about poor after sales service. Thus, we recommend you to keep all your purchase documentation in a safe and secure place if you don’t want to run into any problems in the future.
Other than that, we think that everything else is perfect. Their showroom is nice, and their car salesmen are very professional and provide valuable insight.
The coverage of their warranty policies are pretty extensive too, and they also offer insurance for your purchases. Their buy back policies are also great and can help you save a lot on your next car purchase.
Fantastic customer service
“One of the best Japanese cars 🚗 and SUVs dealers. I visited here with my son for his first car and he liked the super Altima. Fantastic customer service and excellent experience. Highly recommended for purchasing cars from here.” – Azam Anwar

As one of the leading names in the automobile industry, it’s no surprise that Toyota’s showroom in DFC is one of the best car dealerships in Dubai.
With more than 20 models you can choose from, you can see that Toyota has really put in the effort in accommodating the different tastes and needs of their customers.
Their showroom is large, but the cars are displayed in a way that you can still easily appreciate each model’s aesthetics.
The service is also great, so great in fact that one previous customer ended up buying a model that exceeded their initial budget. The car salesmen offer a lot of insight on the advantages and disadvantages of each model, and we really loved that.
Although we noticed that the customer service is quite uncoordinated, leading to a slow service after we were done dealing with the salesman.
We also inquired about future maintenance costs, and found that they’re a bit more expensive compared to other dealerships.
Other than that, we’d also like to point out that they offer a lot of affordable options. They also offer competitive buy back policies wherein you can choose to either renew, retain, or return.
They also offer many pre-owned cars that come with a minimum of one year warranty. In fact, you can even get a Toyota Yaris for as low as AED43,500. Amazing, right?
Very friendly staff
“Toyota always great. Very friendly staff. Met with Kiran who guided me for the whole process till car delivery, very professional and helpful.” – Amer Malik
So many models
“A five star customer service are provided in this Toyota Showroom. You can see displayed of wide range and so many models the car in this showroom. You can book a test drive as well. So many new models are available to purchase in reasonable prices. You can find easily bank representatives if you looking for loans to buy the cars in attractable interests rate.” – Mitthu Kunwar
3. Honda Dubai Festival City (DFC) Showroom – Trading Enterprises
|ADDRESS||Festival Blvd, Dubai Festival City, Dubai, United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 800 46632|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday - Saturday, 9 AM - 8:30 PM|
With six showrooms and seven service centres across the country, Honda is one of the best car dealerships in Dubai.
The first thing that we noticed when we went to this dealership is its tidy and well-planned showroom. Everything is clean and orderly, and the beautiful cars on display immediately caught our attention.
The car salesman that assisted us was very knowledgeable on the models they offer and patiently answered all our questions.
Although we received some reports about poor after sales service. Apparently, some concerns take weeks before the dealership provides a remedy.
We also noticed that they only have seven car models available. Even if they offer only one brand, we think that they could offer at least ten different models to give customers more options.
Even so, we think that this car dealership offers great service plans. You can avail prepaid service contracts that protect you against inflation and keep maintenance costs manageable.
If you’re also on a tighter budget, they also offer pre-owned vehicles under four years old.
You don’t need to worry about compromising quality for savings, since their pre-owned offerings have been thoroughly inspected by trained technicians. You can even check the car’s service history so you can be more confident that it has been well-maintained by the previous owner.
Fast and quick response
“I’m highly recommend salesperson Mr. Syed Rafi from this Honda DFC showroom(Alfuttaim). He is really cooperative and the way he processed from the beginning to the delivery of the car is very commendable. I received the car in just 2 days after receiving the banker approval with all the necessary registrations, insurance, window tinted & paint protection application. Thank you for your fast and quick response. It’s highly appreciated.” – Fazil Ahmed
Models better displayed
“The showroom is near and tidy with all models better displayed in artistic manner. My favorite car is Honda Accord, a true expression of a gentleman car. Another plus point is great coffee that showroom offers to its clients and visitors; strong black coffee with the right attitude of the staff; this taste truest aspires you!” – Akbar Rejep
4. Al Tayer Motors
Ferrari 296 GTB
|ADDRESS||Garhoud Atrium, 2nd St, Garhoud, Dubai, United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 800 668677|
|OPERATING HOURS||Sunday - Friday, 8 AM - 8 PM|
Established in 1982, Al Tayer Motors’s extensive collection of car models has earned it a place in our list of the best car dealerships in Dubai.
They offer more than 200 car models from around seven different brands. If your aesthetic preferences for cars are more specific than others, then you’re likely to find the car of your dreams here.
Majority of the cars they offer are also available for test driving, which gives you the perfect opportunity to familiarise yourself with the models you like.
Although one thing we noticed is that their showroom is severely understaffed, which leads to long waiting times when there’s more than two customers at any given time.
We’ve also received a few reports about long replacement parts for broken parts. That’s why we think Al Tayer Motors could use some improvement when it comes to their customer service and overall logistical operations.
Nonetheless, we think that this car dealership provides one of the most competitive and flexible financing options. Their car salesmen are also knowledgeable about car insurance and provide some good pointers on the subject.
We’d also like to share that Al Tayer Motors is a recipient of the Henry Ford Excellence Award. So if Ford happens to be your preferred brand, we recommend checking them out.
“I have been with the same showroom since 2006 when I bought my Ford Explorer from them. Later Ford Escape, Mountaineer and Ford Eco Sport all bought from same place. Why, cause best prices n best service including that from their adjacent service center. Way to go Al Tayer Motors 👏 👏 👏” – Zee Kay
Service center staff are very competent
“I’ve been coming to this service center ever since I got my second hand ford and land rover vehicles about 2 years ago. The service center staff are very competent and usually rectify any complaints I have with my cars in a reasonable amount of time. Parts are also sold at the service center. Access to the showroom and service center is really easy since it’s located right next to GGICO metro station. Careem taxis were also easily available in the area surrounding Al Tayer Motors.” – Aditya Veera
5. Volvo Dubai Festival City Showroom

|OPERATING HOURS||Monday - Saturday, 9 AM - 8:30 PM|
With more of their focus geared towards sustainability and safer driving, Volvo mostly offers electric cars and is one of the best car dealerships in Dubai.
If you’re looking for top-notch service and more eco-friendly cars, Volvo is definitely the car dealership for you.
You may be familiar with poor after sales service with other car dealerships, but with Volvo, you don’t need to worry about anything like that.
Their overall service is superb, from start to finish to maintenance. They provide a lot of support for their electric cars and you can count on a fast response should you have any issues.
Perhaps the biggest hurdle to becoming a Volvo owner though is the very steep price tag they have on their cars.
In fact, their most affordable model is priced at a whopping AED165,000. Wow, you can already buy two to three affordable cars with that much money.
You also only have seven models to choose from, so if their current models don’t suit your aesthetic preferences, then you’re out of luck.
It’s worth keeping in mind though that electric cars are the future of cars as the world moves towards more sustainable options.
Dubai also has the infrastructure to support your charging needs should you decide to become a proud electric car owner, so no need to worry about that.
Very friendly and very patient
“The salesperson was very friendly and very patient with me. It was a very good experience and changed the way I look at Volvo brand” – Mohamed Ibrahim
Financing was sorted easily
“I recently purchased my first Volvo from the team in Festival City. Thank you to Ivy and Mulder, I love my new XC40. It definitely feels like a huge upgrade from my VW and everyone who sits inside is impressed. The whole experience was simple from start to finish and financing was sorted easily.” – Marcus White
