Nissan Murano 2015: what a beauty
The Nissan Murano has always been a vehicle that gets noticed at first glance because of its unique silhouette that took everyone by surprise when the vehicle was launched several years ago. Two generations later, the 2015 Nissan Murano will still surprise people, but this time it will be because of the beauty of its lines and the fluidity of its silhouette.
Put simply, the 2015 Nissan Murano is gorgeous. The shy front end of the previous two generations has been replaced by an aggressive grille that is noticeable in the distance. The proportions of the Nissan Murano are perfect and the vehicle looks imposing without actually being behind the wheel. In addition, the design of the Murano incorporates a completely new element while the rear part of the roof seems to float. This visual tour de force is achieved thanks to the ingenious idea of painting the C-pillars and thus giving the impression that nothing is holding the roof back.
Inside, it’s just as beautiful as the center console displays a successful presentation on every level, whether in terms of ergonomics, style and quality of materials. It should not be forgotten that the Murano is a vehicle geared towards comfort and luxury, and this reality is reflected quite noticeably inside. In addition, we must absolutely mention the Zero Gravity seats of the all new Murano 2015. These seats are sublime in comfort and even after several hours on the road, we do not feel the need to change position and we never feel discomfort. We also like the quiet ride offered by Nissan's mid-size SUV. With an increased length of 8 centimeters, the 2015 Nissan Murano also offers a little more space inside.
In terms of the engine, there is little change compared to the older generation Nissan Murano. This means that we get a 3.5-liter V6 engine developing 260 horsepower and mated only to a continuously variable automatic transmission. This engine and transmission offers very adequate performance for this type of vehicle, and we like how the Murano is able to deliver a lot of power without being inefficient at the pump.
Offered at less than $ 30,000 and very well equipped in its high-end Platinum version at less than $ 45,000, the Nissan Murano is the perfect mid-size utility if you want a comfortable and well-equipped vehicle above all. Come try it out today at L’Ami Junior Nissan!
