The third-generation Nissan Murano has continued to set sales record sales since its introduction as a 2015 model. That trend is expected to continue in 2017 as refinements are made to various content packages – including the addition of Apple CarPlay™ and expanded availability of Driver Attention Alert1. What remains unchanged are the popular crossover’s concept car-like styling, premium interior and advanced, purposeful technology.

The exterior design projects a sense of refined intensity, creating an immediate “wow” response. As the halo vehicle for Nissan’s wide range of bold crossovers and SUVs, Murano expresses Nissan’s advanced design direction – including its V-motion front end, LED signature boomerang lights and the unique “floating” roof.

The stunning exterior design carries into the interior, which offers an engaging social lounge feel through features such as the refined instrument panel, low center console, advanced Zero Gravity front and outboard rear seating, and the airy atmosphere created by the large windows and oversized Power Panoramic Moonroof.

Responsive driving is provided by a standard 3.5-liter DOHC V6 connected to an advanced Xtronic transmission. Murano is available in front-wheel drive or Intuitive All-Wheel Drive. Fuel economy increased around 20 percent from the previous generation Murano, thanks in part to reduced weight (approximately 145 pounds), low rolling resistance tires, active grille shutter, low 0.31 Cd, underbody covers that enhance underbody airflow and improvements to the Xtronic transmission.

Available audio, navigation and connectivity features include NissanConnectSM with Navigation, 8-inch color display with multi-touch control, Around View® Monitor, 8-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and Travel Link® (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition, iPod® interface, 11-speaker Bose® (including dual subwoofers) premium audio system, and Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System.

Other advanced technologies range from available Moving Object Detection (MOD)2 and Blind Spot Warning (BSW) to Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)3. Murano also offers available Driver Attention Alert (DAA)1, which learns each individual driver’s steering patterns and helps alert the driver when drowsy or inattentive driving is detected (standard on SL and Platinum, optional on SV).
