If you want a vehicle that gets you noticed for all the right reasons, the Nissan Murano is for you. Still not convinced? Keep reading to find out more about what makes the Murano so special.
It starts with that first look, letting your eye travel over the aerodynamic exterior with V-Motion Grille to the rear side pillars that resemble a jet's tail. You start to envision what it's like to be seen in such a beauty, and slide behind the wheel to experience the zero gravity seats that are designed to reduce fatigue even on the longest of journeys. You picture yourself making the long drive to visit your parents and actually feeling refreshed when you get there and note that they're also in the back, so all your passengers can enjoy them too. You made a great time getting there with fewer stops for gas thanks to fuel economy ratings as efficient as 8.3 L /100 km on the highway and 11.7 L /100 km in the city. Rear Door Alert reminds you to check the backseat before you lock up so you'll never forget the sweater you borrowed from your brother last time you visited and never returned.
On your test drive, you notice that the available Nissan Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System is on and ready to make adjustments as needed to deliver power between wheels for enhanced control and traction. You also note how easy it is to get up to speed with the flow of traffic and overtake thanks to 260 horsepower from the 3.5 L V-6 engine and gearless Xtronic CVT that provides a wave of power when you need it and quiet, efficient cruising when you don't. You feel confident behind the wheel knowing that the standard safety, driving, and convenience features are with you to keep you safe, in control, and entertained no matter where you go. You return from your test drive and remind yourself that with a starting MSRP of $32,898, the Nissan Murano offers a lot of value for its modest price tag.
Exceptional comfort, lots of advanced technology, and Nissan's Safety Shield 360 make the new Nissan Murano one of the most popular family vehicles on the road today. The 2020 Murano comes in five trims - S, SV, SL, Platinum, and Limited.
Performance Comes Standard
All 2020 Murano trims come with a 260-horsepower, 3.5-litre DOHC 24-valve V6 engine linked to a Nissan Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission with Sport Mode. Base S models come standard with front-wheel drive, while all other models come with Nissan Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. Front and rear stabilizer bars, along with multi-link independent rear suspension, and vehicle-speed-sensitive electric power steering deliver exceptional handling.
A Well-Appointed Cabin
Standard or available features like heated front and rear seats, dual-zone automatic temperature control, and a heated steering wheel provide exceptional comfort. The standard NissanConnect infotainment system features a six-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a 203 mm multi-touch control colour monitor. SL, Platinum, and Ultimate models get an upgraded 11-speaker (including dual subwoofers) premium Bose sound system. All Murano infotainment systems feature MP3/WMA CD playback capability, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling and music streaming, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Other standard features include illuminated steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, front and rear passenger USB connection ports, and an auxiliary audio input jack.
Notable tech features found on the new Murano include Fine Vision electroluminescent gauges, Nissan Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, and remote-start with Intelligent Climate Control. The Murano's Advanced Drive-Assist Display - a 178 mm colour LCD screen integrated into the center of the instrument cluster - shows a range of information including text messages, call data, trip computer data, and service warnings.
A variety of passive and active safety features combine with advanced driver-assist technologies to make up Nissan's Safety Shield 360. Passive safety features include Nissan's Advanced Airbag System, Zone Body Construction with front and rear crumple zones, and a reinforced passenger compartment. All trims come standard with over a dozen driver-assist technologies, including Intelligent Emergency Braking, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, and Intelligent Driver Alertness.
