2017 Nissan Murano


Sporty and utilitarian, the 2017 Nissan Murano represents the future of automotive innovation. All four available trim levels are absolutely loaded with clever features, designed to help you enjoy life. Several impressive onboard technologies can be had, helping drivers to stay informed and aware of any dangers. The swoopy exterior adds a splash of drama, helping this crossover sit apart from the mundane alternatives.

The standard engine is a 3.5-liter DOHC 24-vavle V-6. It's rated at a stout 260 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque, so you can quickly get up to freeway speeds or power up steep hills. While front-wheel drive is standard, an intuitive all-wheel-drive system is available, boosting handling in all kinds of conditions. The Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) is smooth and efficient, making it ideal for everyday trips.

Hill start assist is included on each model, preventing the vehicle from rolling backwards. Providing even more control is the four-wheel antilock brake system, which combines with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist. The independent strut front suspension and multi-link setup in the rear help keep the tires planted on the road, without transferring bumps to occupants. Vehicle-speed-sensitive power steering aids with precise movements in parking lots and other tight situations, plus solid stability when traveling on the highway.

Nissan has you covered with quite a few standard and optional safety technologies for the Murano. The advanced airbag system includes roof-mounted side curtains and a driver supplemental knee bag. All models come with vehicle dynamic control with traction control, active brake limited slip and LATCH child seat anchor points. The steering column is made of energy-absorbing materials, helping to soften the blow of a crash. High-strength steel beams are embedded in the doors, while crumple zones are incorporated in the front and rear portions of the vehicle. You can get a number of advanced systems. For example, driver attention alert detects if you're too fatigued, and warns you to pull over and rest. Blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert are able to spot other vehicles outside of the driver's field of vision, making the hidden danger known. Moving Object Detection works when the Murano is maneuvering at low speeds, boosting awareness of other cars, pedestrians, etc.

Considerable attention to detail has been paid in designing the Murano interior, making it a space you'll enjoy. Thanks to the expansive windows and small pillars, drivers can clearly see out of the crossover in all directions. This also makes the cabin feel more expansive, along with a low and wide front center console. Simple physical controls on the dash and steering wheel, plus an intuitive gauge cluster layout, minimize distraction. When the weather gets extreme, you can use the optional remote engine start system to heat up or cool down the interior well before getting inside, while seat heaters and ventilation boost comfort further. An optional expanded panoramic moonroof stretches over both rows of seating, giving everyone an amazing view of the sky above, along with letting more light into the space.
