2015 Nissan Murano Debuts in the Big Apple

Reveal

A more aggressive exterior design is exactly what the Murano needed.

Nissan was one of the first automakers to jump into the now booming crossover segment when it launched its original Murano back in 2002. The second model, unveiled in 2007, even spawned the Murano CrossCabrio. Yeah, we know the Murano CC was way below par, but the Murano name itself wasn’t permanently damaged. And now Nissan has revealed the third-gen Murano at this year’s New York Auto Show.

Full details such as specs and features haven’t, for some reason, been announced yet, but official pics are available along with the video ahead.

The front end design is definitely more aggressive than before and we particularly dig that dramatically styled beltline just behind the C-pillar. Nissan definitely played it safe when it came to the interior. Overall, it looks to be constructed of higher quality materials throughout, thus giving the Murano a much more upscale look and feel. And believe us, the Murano will need every bit of extra ammo it can get in this insanely competitive segment.
