There’s no question the current third generation Nissan Murano is a looker. Compared to most other mid-size two row crossovers, this Murano stands out, as you’re about to see in our latest review. Heck, if it weren’t for the Nissan badges we’d even think it was an Infiniti at first. This Murano is painted in a stunning Pacific Sunset and, combined with its floating roof appearance, it might just be the best-looking crossover on sale today, at least for those looking to buy a crossover with sex appeal.
The body sculpting is dramatic and it catches the eye. Powered by Nissan’s familiar 3.5-liter V6 with 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque, the Murano’s performance is decent enough (0-60 mph in 7.3 seconds), and for another $1,600 you can add all-wheel drive.
Its competition? The Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Edge and the Volkswagen Touareg, to name just a few. But it’s perhaps the Grand Cherokee that may lure away some Murano buyers because it’s also very appealing. But know this first: the Murano has more cargo space than the Jeep. What other secrets does the Murano hold? Check out our video review. Special thanks to Future Nissan of Folsom for letting us film the car.
