Brave. Bold. A break from tradition with a clear vision of the future. This is the flowing design and provocative styling of the Nissan Murano. It’s a concept car that doesn’t live in the design studio, but ventures out into the real world. Aerodynamics from the future of aerospace. A daring roof that appears to float. It’s proof the future can be yours, right now.
A sweeping, uninterrupted moonroof reaches over both rows of seats, so even passengers in the back get a clear view and experience an open, natural atmosphere.
Murano's unique "floating roof" design gives it a lower, lighter profile. Matched with sleek boomerang taillights, it forms an energetic flow that is a statement in perpetual motion.
Style meets the street as Murano glides over the road on available luminous 20" machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels.
Compact and bright LED taillights echo the thematic boomerang lighting design found on modern Nissan vehicles.
Active Grille Shutters reduce drag and improve fuel economy. When engine temperature is normal, the shutters automatically close, reducing the amount of air entering the engine compartment.
Your drive is made more enjoyable by Murano’s thoughtful technology. While your seat and steering wheel adjust to your liking, you’ll find that the cabin temperature is already cozy. Heating and cooling options easily zero in on you and your passenger’s preferences. All you have to do is to sit back and enjoy.
Space and flexibility with a seamless way to use it. Open the available Motion Activated Liftgate with a swipe of your foot under the rear bumper, or the press of a button, to access the generous cargo area. Or increase your cargo volume to nearly 70 cubic feet by collapsing the 60/40 split rear seats with power controls from the cargo area or the driver’s seat.
To recreate the “neutral posture” humans experience in the weightlessness of space, front and rear outboard Zero Gravity Seats offer exceptional support, along with seat cushions that respond to your unique pressure points. The result is a seat that’s amazingly comfortable and can help reduce fatigue, no spacesuit required.
Throughout the cabin, the gentle glow of adjustable mood lighting softly highlights the chrome and trim accents in Jasper Pearlescent or Brushed Silver.
Stretching from front to back, it seems to breathe in light. An atmosphere this premium makes it easy to enjoy the journey – and might make your destination seem beside the point.
Adjust the airflow and temperature to keep it just right on either side. Rear passengers enjoy directional air vents at the back of the center console that can be easily opened or closed.
Whether it’s hot or cold outside, there’s relief from the weather. With several settings for heating and cooling, the Nissan Murano helps keep you comfortable.
Stay ahead of the pack with a 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 engine. Aerodynamics achieve a drag coefficient of 0.31 – comparable to some sports cars – which helps contribute to an impressive 28 MPG on the highway.
Accelerating without hesitating. Without traditional gears, the Xtronic CVT is able to hold the engine in the “sweet spot” for instant, smooth acceleration. And during cruising, it keeps engine rpm low for a quiet and fuel-efficient drive.
The available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive adapts to changing conditions instantly, helping you get the grip you need for the situation. The system can automatically switch from 2-wheel to 4-wheel and back, for optimal fuel efficiency and confidence on the road.
From turn-by-turn directions to caller ID and safety features, the Advanced Drive-Assist Display puts it all right before your eyes on its 7" color display, while steering wheel-mounted controls let you toggle through the different screens.
Access music and more with a tap or a swipe on the 8” multi-touch control color monitor. Pinch and zoom navigation lets you zero in on your destination with ease, just as you would on a smartphone or tablet.
Staying connected has never been easier. Apple CarPlay™ takes the things you want to do with your compatible smartphone and puts them right on the 8” color display. Everything important to you is right within reach.
The Nissan Navigation System features an 8” color touch-screen that serves up Points of Interest like restaurants, gas stations, and ATMs, and leads you to your destination with voice-guided turn-by-turn directions you can swipe over to the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display.
Enjoy concert-hall sound and clarity thanks to Murano's Bose® Premium Audio System. With 11 speakers, including dual subwoofers, it's an auditory experience second to none – from every seat.
You’re only human – it’s nice to have some backup. With a suite of available Nissan Intelligent Mobility features, Murano helps you see and sense more around you, and can even step in and take action to help keep you out of trouble.
Available Intelligent Around View Monitor uses four cameras to give you a virtual composite 360º birds-eye view of your vehicle, with selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear, and curbside views. It can even give you an on-screen heads up when it detects moving objects near your vehicle. We’re looking at you, shopping cart.
Standard Intelligent Forward Collision Warning is on the lookout when you can’t see what’s going on ahead. It watches two cars ahead, monitoring your speed and distance, and when it detects sudden deceleration, it gives you a heads-up to slow down.
Available Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps you back out of a space with more confidence. It watches around the rear of your Murano and can warn you about cars it detects creeping up on you from either side.
Available Blind Spot Warning helps you change lanes with confidence. It keeps an eye on the blind spot area and gives you a heads-up if it detects a vehicle hiding there.
When a collision is unavoidable, Zone Body construction helps maintain the integrity of the passenger compartment with strategically placed crumple zones and other reinforced areas.
TPMS lets you know individually when a tire is low, and Easy-Fill Tire Alert takes the guesswork out of filling your tires, with a beep of the horn when you’ve reached the correct pressure.
LATCH is another way we're working to help keep children safe. The Murano LATCH system lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints in the second row without having to use seat belts or a locking clip.
