If car is GCC specification, then you are fine with hot weather as they come prepared for 50+ degree heat. I had Cayenne turbo and VW each for 2 years and they worked perfectly fine in Dubai heat.

If car is non-gcc, like EU or US specs then don't get tempted even on half price as they will make you pay double during the heat. I burnt my finger once in Jeep Grand Cherokee US specs, that has been always overheating and in end sold as-is on recovery truck.
