Relatively unchanged for 2013, the Nissan Murano is a mid-size crossover with seating for five. The standard FWD Murano comes with a Xtronic CVT® automatic transmission (an AWD upgrade is also available). All Murano trim levels are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. Fuel mileage is an EPA estimated 18 mpg city and 23 mpg highway. Features include heated seats, heated mirrors, navigation, push button ignition, 20-inch wheels, and a 9-speaker audio system with dual subwoofers. Safety is comprised of vehicle dynamic control (VDC), traction control (TCS), Nissan advanced airbag system, and roof-mounted supplemental curtain airbags. The Murano is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less
For 2013, the Murano gets a set of new 'Safety Shield' accident-avoidance technologies. Moving Object Detection (MOD), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW)--each active-safety features intended to warn the driver of potential hazards--have been added to Murano LE Platinum Edition models and SL models with the Navigation Package. Otherwise, on Murano SV models there's a new Value Package option, combining the power liftgate, 9-speaker Bose audio, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage-door opener, and a navigation system. And for the entire model line, two new exterior hues are offered: Midnight Garnet and Gun Metallic.
Car-like ride and handling; smooth, responsive powertrain; stylish cabin appointments; good seating position; easy to get in and out; cargo versatility; long, luxury-caliber feature list; new active-safety options
The 5-passenger Murano is Nissan's mid-size crossover model, and with the transformation this year of the Pathfinder to a 3-row crossover instead of a body-on-frame truck, the Murano now fits neatly into a complete Nissan crossover lineup, between the compact Rogue and the larger Pathfinder. The Murano offers a little more style and panache than some other entries in the mid-size class, while in top SL and LE trims it has the feature set of a luxury-badge vehicle. It's also a standout for interior comfort. Furthermore, with the introduction of several key active-safety features for 2013, it's now on par for features, interior comfort, and overall ambiance, with some luxury-brand crossovers.
