Deals of the Week: Ramadan car deal
Arabian Automobiles is the latest car dealer to announce a Ramadan offer with special packages on all its Infiniti models bought during the holy month.
Customers buying any of the luxury Japanese brand's models can enjoy 0 per cent interest in the first year, a five-year extended warranty on the vehicle and the option to either defer the first payment for six months or a 2.49 per cent finance rate over five years with Emirates NBD.
This is not the first Ramadan car deal offered by the car dealer, who also look after Nissan and Renault in Dubai and the Northern Emirates with both brands recently offering Holy Month deals.
"Ramadan this year directly follows the traditionally quiet holiday period in July when car sales are slower, therefore Ramadan is very much the start of the rest of the year for us in many respects," says James Thomas, Arabian Automobiles' general manager of marketing and corporate communications. " As always we are offering customers excellent value and many ways to make buying a car from Arabian Automobiles easier."
The dealers' other offers include cash back rewards of up to Dh50,000, one year's free insurance, five years extended warranty and "buy now and pay next year" options on any Nissan purchases and three years free servicing and one year's insurance on any new Renaults bought during the Holy Month.
The dealer has also teamed up with Atlantis. The Palm giving potential customers the change to test-drive an Infiniti at the luxury hotel's Asateer tent during Suhour.
