Abu Dhabi is awaiting your arrival. This thriving metropolis is brimming with sensational sights and experiences — Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, anyone? Needless to say, big cities often mean heavy traffic, and scoring a car spot isn’t that easy. That’s why switched-on motorists select a mini or a compact car. These small runabouts won’t be appropriate for everyone though. If you’re road tripping with buddies, go for a set of wheels with a little extra room, such as an SUV or a full-size car. These would also make it easier to get out and explore the picturesque sandy shores the region is renowned for.
