First Drive: 2011 Nissan Murano

A comfortable highway cruiser with nimble urban moves.

by on Jul.08, 2011

The Nissan Murano is one of the most distinctive offerings in the midsize CUV segment.

Nissan joined the crossover game with the Murano in 2002, and since then, the Murano has spawned smaller clones such as the Rogue and the Juke urban ute in Nissan’s lineup.

The Murano was last redesigned in 2009, and for 2011 the big news is the addition of the CrossCabriolet convertible and the SV trim level.

The SV essentially slots between the base S and the mid-level SL, providing a touch of luxury without increasing the sticker price too much.

Just a touch of luxury, though, since our SV all-wheel-drive tester still had cloth seats and did not offer a navigation system, which is only available on SL and LE models.

What the SV offers over the S is a moonroof, roof rails, fog lights, an 8-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar, a wireless cell phone link, an alarm system, a rearview camera, and satellite radio.

Some notable updates to the Nissan Murano surface for 2011.

Just two years after introducing its second-generation Murano, Nissan is weighing in with an update to the quirky crossover.

The original Murano was a breakthrough product for Nissan, underscoring the maker’s promise to stretch the boundaries of traditional automotive design – and, in particular, the traditionally rigid constraints of utility vehicles.

The current model, however, fell a bit short of expectations, which likely explains why the Japanese maker is back with a new look so quickly for the 2012 Nissan Murano.
