Nissan Murano - Fresh Face For The Future

The luxurious and sharply styled Nissan Murano has struck a chord with Australian buyers in the premium, medium-sized SUV market since the second generation model made its debut two years ago.

Now with 2012 in sight, Nissan improves its appeal with svelte, new front styling, new design alloy wheels and rear privacy glass.

Expected on sale in September, the new look Nissan Murano features a new grille, front bumper and headlamp design. New, multi spoke 18 inch alloy wheels are introduced for a more prestigious look along with new design rear taillights, new roof rail design (finished in silver on the Ti model) and the addition of rear privacy glass.

The ST model now adds fogs lamps as standard.

Inside, both models now feature rain sensing windshield wipers while ST models pick up a Bose audio with 2 Gigabyte HDD and 7 inch color display; rear reversing camera and heated front seats representing optimum value at $47,990. (Ti pricing is $58,390).

The range topping Murano Ti now features Nissan’s new generation satellite navigation and USB input jack or iPod connectivity with a 9 Gigabyte HDD.

In addition to the highly acclaimed 191kW VQ35DE 3.5-litre V6 engine that offers 336Nm of torque, the Murano is mated to a smooth and silent Nissan Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission that reduces fuel consumption thanks to its low speed lock-up programming. (10.9 litres/100kms)

A full suite of electronic safety systems, including Vehicle Dynamic Control and a rigid bodyshell earned the Murano a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in the United States.

The distinctive Nissan Murano has also underlined its unique profile in the prestige crossover market by capturing a prestigious Australian design award last year.

The Nissan Murano was described by the Australian International Design Awards judges as “a radical departure from the angular SUV wagon stereotypes.”

The Nissan Murano was the first SUV to win a Design Award – which are chosen by Standards Australia, in its charter with the Australian Government, to develop internationally aligned Australian standards.
