If you're choice of a vehicle is one with a smooth ride and responsive handling car, a cargo space of a wagon and the high driving quality of an SUV, then the Nissan Murano is the best for you.
This new model car for Nissan's line-up is a good example of a crossover vehicle having the ability to haul cargo like that of a sport-utility, drives and rides like a car and feels more like a sports sedan. Like the inside of a car, the Murano only has two rows of seats that could accommodate four to a maximum of five passengers in comfort. It is not a good substitute for a minivan, and it doesn't look like one either.
The Nissan Murano has a futuristic look but is backed up by a sporty performance. It is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine which is also found in the 350z sports car and puts out a 245 horsepower. This vehicle shares its groundwork with the Nissan Altima and Maxima sedans.
Included in the 2005 Nissan Murano lineup are: the S model, the SL, and the SE. All of these three are offered in either a front wheel drive of an all wheel drive. The Murano models comes with features above the class standard and is equipped on all three versions a dual-zone automatic temperature control, high pwered AM/FM/CD audio system, power window with automatic up/down feature in front, a keyless remote entry, reclining seats, and alloy wheels in 18 inches.
The Murano SE has a firmer sport-tuned suspension, styled alloy wheels, dark silver lower bumpers and a manual shift mode with high-intensity xenon headlights with a manual leveling feature that is optional on the Murano SL.
As safety features, the Murano is equipped with dual-stage frontal air bags with seat belt sensors, full-cabin curtain style head-protection airbags, front—seat side impact airbags and active front head restraints. All Murano models comes with a standard four-wheel vented disc brakes with ABC, Brake Assist and electronic brake-force distribution.
Just looking at it, the Murano displays an aerodynamic machine, with designs that helps it slip quietly through the air. Some of the airflow improved devices are the underbody engine cover, rear spoilers, front and rear tire deflectors, and aerodynamic mirrors. Added with the low frontal area and roof, these combinations resulted to the enhancement of increase in the fuel efficiency and its noise at high speeds is limited. Nissan's high fashion looking Murano is available in an eight color combination for the exterior of two-tone scheme with three interior hues to mix and match.
